Preventive maintenance is essential for keeping a fleet on the road. By using a maintenance schedule and regularly inspecting essential vehicle components, fleet managers can extend the lifespan of their fleet vehicles and reduce unplanned downtime.
Increasingly, longer-term preventative and predictive maintenance is the preferred answer. And fortunately, there’s a lot of business owners and fleet managers can do to extend the life of their current fleet.
For managers, knowing how to streamline this maintenance approach will make it easier to avoid disruptions without making inspections or repairs less effective.
Utilizing data provided by fleet management technology such as GPS tracking or driver-facing dash cameras can allow fleet managers to individualize driver training and help prevent distracted driving accidents or harsh driving.
Digitize Paperwork and Scheduling
Administrative work can be one of the most time-consuming portions of preventive maintenance. Digital solutions can make storing, accessing, and analyzing this information much simpler. Support staff and mechanics can generate templates for common repairs using information from previous work, streamlining the process of documenting maintenance.
