Did you know...
that the average material handling fleet has 20% more equipment than needed?
And that 80-90% of the cost of your fleet lies in repairs, parts, tools, downtime, and operator expenses? Unfortunately, a recent study suggested that only 6% of end-users actually know what their real costs are while even fewer have fleet management programs in place to reduce this expense.
When it comes to optimizing and managing your fleet assets, the more information you have the better. And the better the information, the more effectively and efficiently you can improve your facility’s operating environment. Therefore, with optimal fleet solutions, you can reduce unnecessary capital expenditures.
A fleet management program typically includes reviewing your current material handling fleet to determine current expenses, analyzing those expenses and looking for opportunities for potential cost savings, reviewing recommendations for maintenance and/or replacement of equipment as well as training and financing options, implementing selected recommendations, and finally monitoring and reporting fleet progress to ensure that your fleet remains in optimal condition.
Having a fleet management program in place can help you increase productivity, improve asset utilization, and improve operator safety and accountability, all using intuitive web-based reporting.
