Rules and regulations for the safety of vehicles keep on updating. Find out how you can comply with them effectively with a vehicle tracking system.
With a growing need to keep the safety and securities check for vehicles, the carried items, the drivers, and the organizations require constant surveillance. New rules and regulations are getting introduced by governing bodies almost every other day to make sure that the services provided by logistics companies comply with the safety concerns of customers and their end customers (where items are delivered to).
From a business perspective, maintaining all the protocols can become a difficult task. But it is necessary to ensure that all of the safety protocols are abided, and the company runs smoothly. Companies can use vehicle tracking systems/features within a transport management software to ensure that compliance is followed through and through without any hassle. One of the most effective ways to ensure this is by enabling your transport management or vehicle tracking system for your vehicles so that you are informed about all kinds of necessary updates regarding your carriers on the road.
A vehicle tracking system here is not so much about a telemetric system but focused on the ongoing delivery status and activities with updates covering delivery assignments, dispatching, and finally the delivery progress and confirmations.
Businesses associated with logistics face obstacles due to a variety of reasons. To understand what they experience, we contacted Mr. Stephen Chew, an expert in the field of logistics planning and this is what he had to say:
“There is a wide range of factors that we need to take into consideration when operating a logistics company. When you are in charge of delivering orders for two or more businesses, you just can’t make a mistake. Businesses depend on us to do it right for them. We are obliged to relay the updates on their delivery orders. This includes telling them where the items are at a specific time and the condition of the goods. Moreover, we have to differentiate the trucks that we send for operations – some of them contain hazardous materials. When unloading from the truck, the frontline agents need to have a clear idea of how to unload certain products. Not to mention, the vehicles can’t be overloaded or damaged, the trucks face road bans and other obstacles, and we have to do everything while satisfying specific demands from our clients.”
