Managing the Fleet
To deliver ready-mixed concrete profitably, communications between dispatchers, drivers, and customers are crucial. Along with time constraints of a perishable product comes the need to balance customer orders with available trucks.
The vehicle location system’s versatility has a major impact on coordinating business. That’s because the system integrates a real-time, enhanced Global Positioning System (GPS) vehicle tracking function with an onboard data recorder, wireless, real-time, and two-way in-cab communications terminals. All vehicle location and status information, as well as fleet management reports, are delivered via the Internet.
The status and location of each truck needs to be as accurate as the driver’s input. There was constant chatter between dispatchers trying to confirm or get updates on locations and the status of each truck. This results in a much quieter, much more efficient dispatch department.
