Évora, 15th of July, 2022 —The road freight sector is complex. It takes a Herculean effort to run an operation profitably, and for shipments to be delivered on time and within budget. At Meight, we continue to eliminate the digitalization barrier in the land transport sector, which is so problematic for small and medium-sized companies.
This month, our partners challenged us to build a solution that would allow drivers to navigate through pre-defined routes, with the aim of reducing unscheduled fuel and toll costs. Our fleets want, and rightly, preventive solutions and assistance to drivers in their day-to-day because they know that the performance of drivers is a great indicator of business performance.
So how do you improve your business in this latest version of the Driver App and Dashboard?
Fleet managers can now specify pre-defined routes, managing to combine national roads and highways, which leads to control and reduction of fuel and toll costs.
It is now possible to predict the cost of tolls and fuel for routes in Europe, even before the truck starts, which leads to better route choice.
Instantly shipped fleet
The onboard fleet is now in real-time: whenever each driver’s load map changes, he will receive an instant notification, eliminating the need for phone calls.
Your drivers now, with the Driver App, have navigation through pre-defined routes and receive notifications when they are on an unplanned road, which allows you to reduce the cost of tolls and fuel before this happens.
Now the management team gains greater clarity about the operation and has more support for better decisions: identification of the most used routes, routes with the highest cost, compliance of drivers regarding routes and arrival times, and many other indicators.
