Telematics: Can it help fleets in bad times and good times?
How can anyone plan for the future in times like these? From one day to the next, it seems we don’t know what to expect. And of course it’s even more difficult if you’re trying to plan to accommodate capacity: how many trailers will we need? How many drivers will it take to meet demand? Will we have what we need?
Fortunately, there are tools that can help you even in a situation as unpredictable as the one in which we find ourselves.
The first half of 2020 has been incredibly volatile, forcing carriers to re-think their strategies for the year. Particularly when times are uncertain, it is critical for fleets to optimize productivity, right-size their fleets and cut costs. However, even when the economy is good, businesses need to operate as efficiently as possible in order to keep up with higher demand, and telematics can help during both of these times.
