Improving Fleet Management with Logistics and Communication

Here at Fueltek, we have over 70 years of experience in providing complete fuel management systems, including full facilities with all the tools to help improve the efficiency of vehicles and drivers.

The fuel industry is becoming more reliant on smart technologies, so we ensure that our tanks and systems incorporate state-of-the-art tools to improve logistics and communications within your businesses.

In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at how to run an efficient logistics operation, including the different types of software that you can incorporate into your complete fuel management package to boost accuracy and improve communication. 

Fuel Management Software

Managing your fleet through our seamless fuel management system allows you to work more efficiently. Cloud-based files and spreadsheets give you ease of access while our software integrates with telematics devices to plan service schedules with helpful notifications and reminders.

Our smart system makes it easy for you to keep on top of important indicators that come up in your operation every day. You can reduce the time spent doing manual data entry and focus on the logistics of your fleet, including improving communication with your drivers through fast, digital methods. 

Getting the Most Out of GPS, Telematics and Tracking Software 

GPS and telematics are crucial for logistics fleet managers to do their job. While logistics traditionally refers to the overall process of managing how resources are acquired, stored, and transported to their final destination, modern-day businesses use logistics to explore how resources are handled and moved along the supply chain.

Our TankWatch fuel monitoring system and software gives fleet managers specific information on stock movements, tank capacity, deliveries, and throughputs, making it easy to assess any problem areas. When TankWatch is used alongside the FT4000 range, it can produce a real-time stock comparison with the book stock figures.

At Fueltek, we’ve designed and developed our own management and reporting software, Fuel Manager Online (FMO). This software can produce tailored comprehensive reports on all aspects of your re-fuelling operation, including instant access to transaction information on pump throughputs. Quality reporting can help to reduce costs and monitor usage.

The FT400 range uploads information to Fueltek FMO automatically, so data is always available at your fingertips. All data can be accessed easily through FMO when used with any of our Fuel Access Control Terminals (FACTS). You can access the web-based program on any PC or internet-enabled device with the correct login and password details.

By automating your fuel management processes, you can eliminate human error and focus on a more informed and data-led approach. By implementing a reliable fuel management system, we can guarantee that you’ll see an improvement in your fleet’s overall communication and performance.

Keep Ontop of Fuel Maintenance Data

Our fleet management software allows you to pull data for fuel and maintenance efficiently — eradicating the need for manual data pulls or multiple uploads. Save time and money by seeing the data ‘live’ on our FMO. 

You can choose many different integrations with our software, making it simple to gain insights, create reports, and analyse data. 

Our systems are designed in-house and manufactured to the highest standards to continually operate in harsh environments.

Track and Log Expenses Efficiently 

Considering the cost of fuel and saving fuel are two of the main responsibilities of a fleet manager. Claiming expenses accurately can significantly help with logistics, and a fuel management system will tell you exactly how much your fleet is spending.

In the Spring Budget 2021, Rishi Sunak announced that fuel duty rates had been frozen for the 11th year running at 57.95p per litre, so this is welcome news for fleet managers, who don’t need to take higher rates into account when developing new fuel policies for the business.

Our intelligent systems can track your fleets fuel usage, giving you up to date information on-demand. The benefit of tracking in real-time means that you can stay on top of your fleet’s fuel consumption and make informed data-driven decisions.
