One of the best ways to change poor driving habits in your fleet is to provide relevant, ongoing training. This can reduce or even eliminate the risks encountered by fleet drivers. MiX Telematics fleet management solutions for food trucks and food delivery services gives you an essential tool for driver training. In addition to tracking driver performance, it can help your drivers learn and retain knowledge.
Your trucks and your drivers represent your business to your customers, which makes their performance an essential part of your operation. Unsafe and reckless drivers can have negative consequences for your business, such as causing accidents that raise your insurance premiums.
When you buy a truck for your fleet, you know that maintenance costs will increase over the vehicle’s lifetime, and ultimately affect the total cost of ownership (TCO). While age is a predictor of maintenance costs, another predictor is the quality and consistency of maintenance. That’s why it is vital for fleet managers and owners to minimize these costs as much as possible.
Installing telematics is one of the best ways to ensure that your vehicles receive regular maintenance. By automating the process, you will receive alerts that help you schedule your maintenance and avoid unexpected repairs that keep trucks out of service.
Fuel costs are one of the trickiest things to manage for your food delivery fleet. They often represent about 60% of a fleet’s operating costs. And, they can be challenging to control since fuel prices fluctuate based on a variety of factors that are out of your control. With Mix Telematics, you can closely monitor your fleet’s fuel consumption and take action to reduce it. We can monitor your fleet’s fuel consumption and package the results in reports that make it easy to digest and analyze. You’ll be able to see the big picture and drill down to see each driver’s fuel usage.
With the tools for better food delivery route optimization, you’ll be better able to serve your customers. Your trucks will be on time or even early. You’ll know ahead of time if there is traffic, construction, or other delays and can instantly reroute your trucks. If one of your trucks is in an accident or delayed, you can send the nearest truck and optimize all your trucks' routing to maintain your schedule. Deliveries will be on time, and your customers will be happy.
Keeping your food and beverage or food truck fleet in compliance with regulations is more important now than ever. Lack of transparency and accountability can result in severe fines and penalties that can harm your business and your reputation. MiX Telematics offers a range of products and services that help you comply with the difficult health, safety, and environmental (HSE) regulations. You can schedule compliance activities and follow-ups. All your compliance information can be accessed at a glance through your dashboard, and you can generate reports on hours logged, driver behavior, and more.
With MiX Telematics, you can increase your fleet’s safety, reduce fuel consumption, lower the frequency of vehicle maintenance, and remain in compliance with Health and Safety standards. With the increased visibility we give you, you’ll save time, effort, and money.
