Plan efficient routes to save fuel waste, time and money


Plan efficient routes and save fuel costs

Faster routes and efficient planning helps you deliver more in a day. Get your packages to their recipient sooner by mapping out the quickest route along all stops. Monitor planned vs. taken route to see where drivers aren’t performing or to target efficiency. Manage idling times to save on fuel consumption to save your business money.

Oversee your fleet in the field with real-time updates

Geotab’s live tracking lets you view the team in the field as they complete deliveries. Get real-time updates on safety and delivery progress and keep your team moving. Expand the solution to include in-vehicle communications and dispatch jobs to your team on the fly.

Prioritize driver safety at all times

With Geotab, you can help keep the team safe on the road and at the work site. Manage unsafe driver behaviour by measuring harsh braking and acceleration, sharp turns, seat belt use and speeding against posted road speed. Generate driver safety performance reports to manage outcomes before a collision occurs. If a collision does happen, Geotab also helps you reconstruct the incident using your telematics data to support insurance claims.

Unrivalled electric vehicle support

Geotab’s telematics platform helps last-mile delivery services plan for the future. As more EVs come on the market, Geotab continues to support them by pulling telematics data and vehicle information into your MyGeotab online platform for comparison. Manage state of charge and remaining capacity to recall vehicles and dispatch those with charge remaining to complete jobs.

Predict maintenance issues and keep vehicles on the road for longer

Geotab’s GPS trackers do more than show location. Pulling engine data and analysing trends lets you target maintenance to the most heavily used pool vehicles or decode engine diagnostic information. Receive alerts when potential breakdowns are predicted so vehicles don’t have to be taken off the road or end up costing you more money in repairs than necessary.

Commonly asked questions

With thousands of jobs to allocate every day, it's vital that courier fleet routes are optimised to reduce transport mileage and associated fuel costs. And that's just the start of the day. The best courier fleets are able to dynamically respond as new jobs are allocated, traffic interruptions occur and drivers run into difficulties.

Knowing in real time which driver is the closest to any job that needs to be assigned and being able to dispatch and message drivers dynamically is key to customer service success. A fleet management solution provides the fleet operations team with the visibility and insights to be able to plan, enact, and respond swiftly and effectively.

Courier vehicles have high utilisation rates and rack up a lot of kilometres. A courier fleet management solution will help you to closely monitor your fleet's total cost of ownership (TCO) so that you can maximise your return on investment (ROI) and reduce unnecessary spending. Fleet maintenance software enables you to take a proactive approach to fleet maintenance to reduce vehicle downtime and costs.
