Commonly asked questions
What is meant by fleet productivity?
How do I measure fleet productivity?
How do idling and vehicle downtime affect fleet productivity?
Vehicle downtime is a serious drain on vehicle utilisation rates, and as such, fleet productivity. Downtime can be caused by a range of factors, including aggressive driving behaviour, ineffective fleet maintenance programmes, running vehicles on duty cycles that they are not suitable for, and inefficient routing. The MyGeotab fleet management system enables you to counter all of these issues quickly and effectively to drive up vehicle utilisation rates.
How does improving fleet productivity help reduce costs?
Increasing vehicle utilisation provides fleet managers with opportunities to reduce overall fleet size, both by reducing the number of vehicles needed to complete the same number of jobs, and by reducing the need for reserve vehicles to cover duty vehicles while they are undergoing maintenance.

What is vehicle fleet optimisation?
Geotab's fleet optimisation is based on vehicle data analysis: How the vehicle is driven, its fuel consumption and its mechanical condition, which allow for in-depth analysis and a way to optimise the available resources.
How do I measure the fleet's low-productivity time?
Using the MyGeotab GPS and software, you can constantly track the vehicle, see the vehicle's waiting and stop times and, as such, know when it has not been productive. Thanks to this tracking, you can communicate with the driver and plan faster, more efficient routes.
How can tracking assets help improve fleet productivity?
Using GPS tracking to track assets can improve the productivity of your fleet by allowing you to monitor the valuable assets that form a part of it, whether they are on the road or off. Asset tracking allows you to locate and repair equipment. The GO RUGGED devices from Geotab also offer a sturdy design and a long battery life, making them ideal for use outdoors and in challenging weather conditions. Solar-powered asset tracking devices are also available.
How can driver tracking help improve fleet productivity?
Driver-tracking software works by linking up with vehicle data so that driver behaviour and compliance can be evaluated. Installing a driver-tracking system allows you to track and evaluate the performance of drivers in your fleet. Geotab provides fleet-tracking systems and the straightforward MyGeotab software to help you improve driving performance using scorecards, trend reports and innovative add-in solutions that prevent collisions and stop drivers from being distracted while at the wheel. All of these factors can help to increase the overall productivity of your fleet.
