Downtime is something with which fleet managers everywhere are all too familiar. To an extent, it’s inevitable. All vehicles require servicing, maintenance, repairs and inspections from time to time. But just because downtime can’t be eliminated, it doesn’t mean it can’t be minimised.
In fact, minimising downtime is incredibly important, because every day a vehicle is off the road can be very costly for your organisation. It’s not just the money you spend at the garage, repairing or servicing the vehicle. There are all the associated expenses on top: the cost of any replacement vehicles, the lost productivity because your employees can’t work, and the time spent rearranging schedules.
