Benefits of the FlexTMS and TruckerCloud Partnership
Wondering how FlexTMS’ partnership with TruckerCload can help you? Check out these benefits:
Live Load Tracking
FlexTMS and TruckerCloud’s partnership lets you track loads live. You can quickly point out drivers who don’t handle trucks efficiently with live load tracking. You can then use strategies to help them operate better.
Aside from live load tracking, FlexTMS also lets you know where your vehicles are all the time. If it gets stolen, real-time updates help the police locate your vehicle.
Thanks to automated notifications, you don’t have to rely on drivers to manually record mileage logs, departure logs, and arrival logs. A real-time system will automatically report and calculate all that information.
Trucking businesses and fleet managers get automatically notified by the live system when a vehicle is driven outside of working hours or in non-authorized areas.
Lower Operation Costs
Fuel costs remain one of the highest operating expenses for transportation businesses. FlexTMS and TruckerCloud’s partnership allows owners to manage and reduce expenses. It does this by reducing idle times, improving dispatching, monitoring speed, enhancing routing, and getting alerts for vehicle maintenance.
Plus, when you track exactly how much time each driver spends idling, you know which drivers idle often or for too long. This saves you thousands of dollars in the long run.
Lastly, if you pay drivers hourly, GPS fleet tracking helps you avoid extended trips and false time claims.
Your customer and company security also improves with FlexTMS and TruckerCloud’s partnership.
With this partnership, your drivers can use company-issued devices to communicate during their trips without compromising the security of business applications.
Additionally, you prevent numerous accidents with more efficient route management, GPS tracking, a reliable ELD, and regular identification of destructive driving behaviors.
Fleet monitoring systems also allow you to create geographical limits. Then, the system will send alerts when a vehicle enters or exits the area. For instance, systems let you choose safe areas that indicate where your drivers can rest.
You can also use notifications to alert you when a truck leaves or arrives at your facility to prevent unauthorized vehicle movement. If any untoward incidents happen, you can support your drivers and ensure their safety.
Enhanced Customer Satisfaction
FlexTMS and TruckerCloud’s partnership also allows you to improve customer service.
With real-time information about the trucks’ route, you can notify your customers about their loads. Remember, customers love up-to-date and reliable shipment information.
In addition, your fleet can answer service calls quickly and reach your customers on time. In fact, drivers monitored with a real-time tracking system arrive within the promised time 46% more frequently.
Last, and best of all, FlexTMS helps you get great returns and more profits.
For one, less administrative burden reduces operational costs. Better insurance premiums and reduced liabilities positively affect the balance sheet. Plus, transportation companies improve driver retention rates with proper driver management.
