GPS Tracking devices are a huge part of our everyday lives and in some case, we don’t even realise it! Some people don’t even know what GPS stands for – Global Positioning System. Although it is a bit of mouthful (hence the initials being used) it does just about sum up what it does.
Emergency call out times are something that you should look to always improve and if you’re not getting them right, another company is. Brand loyalty means nothing when someone is under pressure and timing is everything. Not only do you have to respond as soon as you can, you have got to beat the rest of the competition.
Did you know RAM Tracking can save you on average £71* per vehicle per week? That makes a great total of £3692 per year! Over 750 companies took part in our money-saving exercise, and we worked out how much time and money was wasted on some of the daily tasks that the team at RAM Tracking could easily and happily take care of. The following is a breakdown of how we can help you increase the amount of money that you make and decrease the amount of money you waste.
The fleet industry is very happily welcoming in the continuing freeze in fuel duty, thanks to the cancellation of the inflation rise, which was due next month; by Chancellor George Osborn. This unexpected move now means that the rate of fuel duty will continue to be 57.95p per litre throughout 2016/17. This will keep the pump prices at their current price of being 18p cheaper than if the pre-2010 fuel duty escalator plans had been maintained. This is great news for those with commercial vehicles. RAM Tracking makes it really easy for businesses with commercial vehicles to keep tabs on information required by HMRC, helping you to avoid nasty penalties.
By law it is an employer’s responsibility to ensure their equipment is well maintained, in an efficient state of working order and in good repair. It is vital that all vehicles are maintained; to the level specified by the manufacturer and that they are mechanically in good condition. Employers often find it helpful to provide each of their drivers with a daily vehicle checklist, in order to ensure the vehicle is in sufficient repair before it goes out on the road. A daily check list acts as a reporting system for any faults or hazards regarding the state of the vehicle, which an employer has a legal obligation to address immediately and repair the vehicle in order to meet with the legal guidelines.
With fuel prices at a record high, we are all looking for inventive ways to reduce our fuel consumption, although you may be surprised to know that it isn’t quite as difficult as you might think, follow these simple steps and see how much you can save.
