Predictive maintenance can increase productivity by 20-30 % and reduce breakdowns by 70 %.
The transport sector is considered one of the main engines of the modern economy. That is why the companies, related to this sector, are growing exponentially and have an increasingly large fleet and more evolved vehicles.
Due to this evolution, management softwares have been an indispensable support when working with all the data resulting from daily operations: positioning, loads, tachographs, maintenances, etc.
However, there are some key issues to achieve a more effective task and help not only to facilitate management but also to reduce costs arising from possible bureaucratic problems, fuel consumption or unforeseen breakdowns.
From Cojali Group, a leading company in the development of diagnostic software and technological solutions for commercial vehicles, we wanted to highlight the following points as differentiating aspects to achieve optimal fleet management:
It will be possible to know in advance when a vehicle system will fail and avoid unplanned periods of inactivity and damaged vehicles. There are tools on the market that offer cloud diagnostics solutions capable of preventing possible failures through advanced analysis. This can increase profits up to 25 % in terms of the current cost of maintenances and repairs, depending on the average age of the fleet.
In addition to the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations and general regulation regarding mileage maintenance, it would be recommended to invest in management solutions that incorporate the possibility of performing predictive maintenances. These solutions will analyze a multitude of parameters derived specifically from each vehicle, due to wear or driving style, and they will establish a pattern that will allow you to anticipate and schedule a visit to the workshop to avoid possible problems in the future.
On average, predictive maintenance can increase productivity by 20-30 % and reduce breakdowns by 70 %.
Tachograph data management:
The availability of these files is crucial in the field of fleet management, given that there is a legal regulation that requires the availability of this information. For this reason, it is advisable to have a platform that guarantees its reliability and custody and also to allow us to do so in the most comfortable and agile possible way. That is why, from Cojali, we strongly recommend to opt for management softwares that allow to download it remotely, freeing the management personnel from problems related to the location of the vehicle, to download it on the scheduled date.
Refrigerated cargo control:
Refrigerated goods transport requires specific temperature conditions to maintain the cold chain all the way on the road. Having a management platform that can meet the requirements of conservation and control of temperature or humidity is another key factor to achieve a proper fleet management, especially in the pharmaceutical and food sectors.
Cojali, as one of the main suppliers of diagnostic solutions at a global level, permanently focused on R+D+I, also offers cutting-edge management solutions such as Jaltest Telematics, whose ODF platform responds to all these needs as elements of added value concerning standard softwares. ODF also stands out for the possibility of extending and integrating this solution with the own systems of each company and manufacturers of cooling systems and vehicles, combining everything in a single management tool.
