Traditionally, vehicle fleets are maintained in two ways. These are corrective and preventive maintenance. Corrective Maintenance is usually unplanned and is an intervention to a defective component in a vehicle. Corrective maintenance is a costly and time-consuming maintenance method for fleet managers, as it is performed after a breakdown occurs and the vehicle becomes unserviceable.
Preventive maintenance, on the other hand, is a proactive approach to fleet maintenance where regular maintenance is planned and carried out to prevent potential failures of vehicle components.
A preventive maintenance program allows fleet managers to improve overall uptime and reduce costs related to unplanned repairs, as well as extend the life of the assets in their fleet.
A strong and sustainable preventive maintenance program is vital for a fleet. Keeping a fleet well maintained not only maximizes uptime and extends vehicle longevity, but also ensures the safety of the assets being transported.
Commercial vehicle software can be used to track the scheduled maintenance of vehicles. The platform calculates the distance covered by the vehicle since the last maintenance and provides information on the remaining distance until the next maintenance, facilitating the management of preventive maintenance.
Optimization of Maintenance Services
Effective planned maintenance measures can increase customer satisfaction and reduce costs. In addition, thanks to these maintenance measures, you can stand out from your competitors and reach better levels in terms of cost.
Increasing Operation Efficiency
By developing plans for maintenance measures, the costs that may be caused by the necessity to stop the machine when it is out of order are minimized. Easier and faster production can be achieved if resources and measures are applied on time. Since it minimizes the service requirement, the number of personnel to be involved in maintenance and service operations is minimized. It provides more effective use of human resources in terms of both time and cost.
