Operating a fleet is a complicated and time-consuming task. From hiring drivers to managing routes, payroll, insurance, vehicle maintenance costs, safety compliance, taxes, and more – it can easily interfere with your core business operations. However, there is a solution for your transportation needs—a dedicated fleet. Dedicated fleet services came into existence with a simple concept – give customers an optimized transportation service and sales channel that fits into their organizational structure like a brick in a wall.

Dedicated fleet services, also known as dedicated transportation, are services commonly offered by third-party logistics companies. A dedicated transportation team provides a company with guaranteed capacity, supply chain control, and visibility of the entire operation. In short, the company has complete control, along with the ability to brand trucks and add revenue by shipping goods for other companies when allowed. A dedicated fleet is a service that is ideal for anyone with a regular shipment to complete. Below are some of the most often-sighted reasons for choosing dedicated transportation.

Optimize Your Supply Chain 


Using a dedicated fleet allows shippers to continually move freight on the same routes, which helps build a steady flow of inbound and outbound shipments. Whether moving freight on local, regional, or long-haul routes, shippers can stage loads to customers or to other locations, which frees up warehouse space, making for a more effective supply chain.

Shippers who choose dedicated trucking also see more consistent pricing. Many carriers offer lower rates for dedicated shipping due to the predictability of the shipments, the routes, and the backhaul assistance programs in place to decrease empty miles.

Along with being a problem solver and a delegator being a fleet manager entails much more than ensuring your fleet is up to par. It requires you to be an excellent communicator, a multitasker, a mechanical expert, an administrator, and a negotiator. If an obstacle arises, it is the fleet manager that finds the solution. If a driver has an issue, the fleet manager delegates the task. For some, embodying all of these characteristics is challenging. For others, combining all of these skills into one job title is nearly unattainable. But, there is always room for improvement in the world of management; our team compiled a list of tips for successful fleet management.

Safety, Safety, Safety! 


Truck driving requires a lot of focus, good health, and defensive driving practices, when you’re on the road for long hours at a time, the risk for an accident rises. When factoring in weather conditions and traffic, and it’s clear that drivers need to stay alert no matter the circumstances. It’s up to the fleet manager to stress the importance of safe driving. By rewarding safe driving practices, scheduling regular safety briefings, and creating/updating protocols, it will help drivers stay mindful.

Embrace New Technology 


Having the latest and greatest technology had become all the more critical than ever. ELD mandates, driver safety, and changing laws are just a few reasons why it’s crucial for fleet managers to welcome new technology. Efficient fleet managers not only accept the change, but they also embrace technologies and welcome whatever new challenges come with it.

Keep an Eye on Cost 


Staying on track of all fleet management costs helps to control budgets. Fleet management operates with costs such as fuel, drivers’ salaries, vehicle maintenance, wages, and various other business costs. For an effective fleet manager, it is crucial to look for possible savings and avoid unnecessary losses across the business. Fleet managers should look for alternative ways of saving money, for example, optimizing driver routes to increase sustainability and cut fuel costs.
