How to work smarter and more efficiently with Fleet Management Systems

The development within FMS is fast and it brings continuously new possibilities. FMS is closely linked to the technological development
and the automotive industry is currently in a very exciting phase. Digitalization has been going on for a while and new concepts like
Big Data, Al (Artificial Intelligence) and IoT (Internet of Things) begin to be explored further in practice. For those who work with, and
are in charge of, transports and logistics, it can be difficult to stay updated on all new trends and technologies. This e-book is created
for those who are curious about some of the key trends within FMS and mobility. Monitoring industry trends is important for many companies
as new solutions often can simplify work and streamline the operations. In this article we present five important trends within
FMS 2019 and beyond.

Six efficient ways to reduce the number of violations of drive- and resting time rules

The transport industry is, as everyone in it knows, regulated in many ways. An area that is highly regulated both nationally and at the EU level
is the drive – and resting times (“drive- and resting times”). The rules can be perceived as complex, which often leads to violations and mistakes. If you violate the rules for drive- and resting times, the carrier is penalized by sanctions, usually in the form of charges.
However, transport companies can reduce the number of violations by improving the workflows, training the staff, and investing in appropriate
system support. In this article, we will briefly explain what drive- and resting times is, then reviewing how to operate proactively as a carrier to
avoid violations and sanctions.

Reduce waiting times during loading and unloading

Reduce the waiting times for your commercial vehicles

Many transportation companies experience waiting times and they are costly both in terms of money and time. Waiting times often occur at the customer's place, as the driver must wait before loading or unloading of the goods. Even if every waiting period is not always long, it quickly accumulates to substantial time, which costs a lot of money over time. For most transportation companies this is an indirect expense that is difficult to get full coverage for when the customer is charged. For this reason, there is good potential to save money and time in this area.

 In this article we will explain how to effectively measure and reduce the unnecessary waiting times that are common in the industry. We will partly discuss how telematics and Fleet Management Systems can be used to identify and reduce the waiting times, but also other aspects of the problem.
