Now, more than ever, fleet managers face evolving challenges, all made even more complicated by the pandemic.
While driver safety and efficiency have always been major priorities, emerging realities have heightened their importance – and their difficulty to navigate.
Throughout this past year, as many people have seen their work dramatically altered, so too have fleet managers and drivers. Although, unlike other professionals, drivers continue to go to work in-person every day – that means hitting the road, fuelling up, and interacting with the world at large. Fleet managers must protect their drivers in this complex environment. Simultaneously, economic pressures have meant fleets must operate more cost-effectively.
Despite these challenges, technology has opened up new possibilities and given fleet managers an improved set of tools to ensure they can better safeguard their drivers, vehicles, and bottom lines. Chief amongst these is telematics.
Telematics: A powerful tool
In an industry built on going farther and more efficiently, telematics – including Shell Telematics – keeps fleet managers closer to their vehicles and drivers than ever before, at least virtually.
With Shell Telematics and the right fuel card, fleet managers can better plan for the future, protect their drivers, and get the most out of their vehicles.
With the latest technology, fleet managers gain unrivalled visibility into how their drivers operate, how their vehicles perform, and how their operations run.
More specifically, by easily tracking vehicles with Shell Telematics, fleet managers can make more comprehensive, accurate plans. The ability to observe driver performance can lead to a reduction in accidents. And, by increasing financial control, fleet managers can more easily tackle potential fraud.
Ultimately, Shell Telematics increases control for fleet managers, allowing them to access data and insights; enhance fuel efficiency and potentially lessen emissions; reduce maintenance costs; and improve driver safety.
