The best way to achieve this is by using a van tracking system to monitor your fleet of vehicles. Van trackers, also known as van tracking devices, can provide you with real-time visibility into the whereabouts and activities of your vans, allowing you to make informed decisions that can save you time and money.

Van tracking systems benefits for your business:

  • Know where your vans are at all times: The number 1 reason businesses want vehicle trackers are for understanding the whereabouts of their assets and drivers. With van tracking, you can see exactly where each of your vehicles is located at any given moment. This can for example help you dispatch the nearest van to a job, reducing fuel costs and travel time.
  • Reduce fuel costs: An unavoidable cost and often a significant one in overheads. By keeping track of your van's fuel consumption you can:
    • Identify any inefficient driving habits, you can make changes to save money on fuel. 
    • Notice poor driving habits such as harsh acceleration and braking.
    • Reduce the number of unnecessary stops, breaks or detours.
  • By cutting down on unproductive time seen through tracking vans, you can see how much time your drivers are spending on the road versus at a job site. This can help you identify any unproductive time, such as long breaks or unnecessary detours, and take steps to address it. By making the most of every minute, you can increase your productivity and profitability.

  • Van tracking can help you hold your drivers accountable for their actions on the road. With the ability to track driver performance, the van trackers generate a scoring system which makes it easy to evaluate.
    • Some customers have introduced a reward system for drivers that score well and maintain that score whilst those at the bottom of the league table can be trained to drive better or penalised for consistant poor driving.
    • By setting clear expectations and holding your team accountable, you can improve the overall performance of your business with:
      • Fuel savings.
      • The lifespan of the van within the fleet. 
      • Reduced likelihood to be off the road with maintenance.
  • Improve route planning: Van tracking technology can help you plan the most efficient routes for your vehicles, using data on traffic patterns, road conditions, and other factors. By choosing the best routes, you can save time so you can get more done in the day as well as save money on fuel.
  • Improve customer service: With real-time visibility into your fleet, you can provide your customers with accurate arrival times and keep them updated on any delays. This can help improve your customer service and keep your clients happy.
