Catching a bite to eat can be challenging for fleet drivers, whether you run a local route or do long hauls across the country. Eating while driving is not advised, and there should always be time for lunch. But let's face it: many drivers catch a meal behind the wheel to make up time in the middle of a route.
Each season has its unique challenges for fleet drivers who are out on the roads every day. In the summer, the common road hazards are not just from the weather, but also from people.
When it comes to managing your organization's vehicles, choosing between a mileage reimbursement model and a company-owned or leased fleet is a crucial decision.
Choosing the right leasing option for your company's fleet impacts your bottom line and operational efficiency. Closed-end leasing is a popular choice for many businesses because of its simplicity and convenience.
As a business with company-owned vehicles, getting attached to them is common, which is normal. The vehicle can come in handy when transporting goods to and from customers. Company-owned vehicles are also time and money savers plus attract tax and insurance advantages.
Acquiring new vehicles for your company's fleet puts you ahead of your competition. New vehicles have improved fuel efficiency, enhanced safety features, and require low maintenance and repairs, saving costs and improving overall fleet performance.
In fleet management, every single tire carries the livelihood of your business. Lives are carried on its treads and lives depend on its performance on the road.
Tire safety is one of the simplest and most important elements of your fleet maintenance routine. Every driver, fleet mechanic, and fleet manager should know how to check the tire pressure, treads, and sidewalls of each tire to ensure safety on the road.
In many regions, the heat of the summer is fast approaching (or is already here) and it's time to prepare your fleet for a new season. Hot weather poses a new set of concerns and can be a huge contrast from the icy winter you just experienced.
