As we make our way into 2023, rising costs continue to be a primary concern for fleet operators, as challenges to supply equipment and driver shortages remain. Fleet managers need to focus more than ever on savings-related solutions.

Economic ebb and flows persists, and accepting and embracing a more digital workflow can make a difference – not only regarding convenience, but savings for the cost efficiency of your fleet. With increased interest in emerging technology, there are several ways to go digital, including telematics, mobile fueling, and fleet fuel cards.

A telematics program can help fleets save by providing intuitive insights for operational tasks such as shortened routes and avoidance of downtime, saving both time and money in the long run. Mobile fueling saves fleets on time spent refueling, reduced mileage from refueling detours and lessened administrative costs. Furthermore, a fleet fuel card can give fleet managers control over when and how much fuel is purchased.

Regardless of your fleet’s unique needs, Shell Fleet Solutions has something for you. Thank you for trusting us to help keep your fleet moving.

The best fleet management is proactive not reactive

Fleet owners and operators are often in the business of crisis management, dealing with supply chain disruptors, not to mention everyday fears surrounding the fiscal environment. Today, more than ever, one cannot afford to be reactive, but rather must be goal-oriented in all aspects of fleet management. But how do we do more with less? Automotive Fleet discusses ways to be proactive with fleet management.

Telematics: pulling out all the stops

The term telematics is often misunderstood. Fleet tracking is a watchful eye at its simplest, and telematics provides operational information about a vehicle. This increasingly user-friendly fleet management tool uses data to inform managerial decisions, helps increase fleet efficiency, provides geofencing to monitor routes, reduces unnecessary miles and minimizes aggressive driving. All these valuable outcomes are all available to you with a telematics system.
