Rob Kooken, PHH ArvalBy Rob Kooken, Director, PHH Arval Business Development

When it comes to determining your fleet management strategy for medium-duty trucks, understanding the wear-and-tear on these trucks is crucial for preventive maintenance scheduling, replacement planning and optimizing vehicle utilization. In the January/February issue of Work Truck Magazine, I participated in an article called “Measuring Hours vs. Miles in Medium-Duty Truck Performance.” There’s a lot of great information in the piece.

Fleet strategy: A video telematics case study

January 17, 2014

Dave Zuidema, Senior Vice President and CIO, PHH ArvalBy Dave Zuidema, Senior Vice President and CIO, PHH Arval

If you read our recent Fleet Resolutions post on how to enhance the performance of your fleet in 2014, you may remember one of the recommendations:

“Try piloting telematics in your fleet.”

We’ve found that companies may be interested in this technology, but they’re either not sure if it’s right for them or find it difficult to convince management to give it a try. But just testing it in a few vehicles for a two-month period can provide valuable insights into how useful it would be for your fleet and management strategy – from increasing driving productivity to reducing fuel costs and accidents.

For one company’s experience with a telematics solution to move its business forward, watch this 3-minute video about Wittenbach Business Systems.

If you’ve been using telematics in your fleet, we’d like to hear about your results!
