Because of today's increasingly stringent cost pressures, effective fleet management is more than just important, it’s critical.
Even with the best drivers and the best intentions, it is vital to monitor their performance and ensure key criteria are met to the highest degree attainable.
Mere adequacy is no longer enough when every driver action, even if quite minor, can have a noticeable effect on your bottom line including company’s reputation and unnecessary expenses.
This means it is essential to measure the performance of your drivers, including driving habits and behaviours and educate ways they can help maximise fuel economy, minimise running costs (including minimal exposure to accidents) and load damage or loss.
Obviously, a monitoring system not only benefits management, it also benefits your drivers. By employing driver performance programs, you can incentives, recognise and reward your best drivers while others are encouraged to improve their performance and provide additional coaching and training to improve their driving behaviour.
Before technology was available, most companies learned of poor driver performance through phone contact by a witnessing bystander or an accident. Today Telematics aids to meet this vital need, which Hino now offers Hino Traq, a real-time vehicle and driver monitoring system that uses the latest information technology to send, receive and store relevant performance information across long distances.
By receiving constantly updated information 24/7 on all key performance indicators (KPIs), you will be able to help drivers improve fuel efficiency, optimise their own safety, keep trucks and cargo secure, improve delivery times and enhance overall operational efficiency and business decision making.
For instance, Hino Traq can analyse fuel use right down to looking at over-idling or over revving, speeding, harsh braking, acceleration and leaving engines running during loading or unloading.
You'll also be able to keep an eye on the overall efficiency of your fleet including delivery or pickup timings and ensure drivers meet your required performance benchmarks.
In addition to real-time monitoring that virtually puts you in the co-driver's seat, Hino Traq's Green Band reporting feature helps determine driving behaviour by measuring efficiency within pre-set bands, using special Eco-Driving reporting.
Maximise driver safety, employ driver performance programs, up skill your drivers, improve the overall business image and the bottom line with Driver Performance Management.
