Maximizing Fleet Efficiency

Effective fleet management can help companies reduce costs, improve operational productivity, and ensure compliance with regulations.

Tracking vehicle performance and identifying maintenance needs is key to maximizing fleet efficiency. Implementing preventive maintenance keeps vehicles in good condition and also, avoids costly repairs. Fleet managers should have a well-defined preventive maintenance plan in place with determined intervals for lubrication, inspections, cleanings, testings, and other routine maintenance activities. If you need assistance creating a preventive maintenance plan for your fleet, our team of transport experts would be happy to help.
Total Cost of Ownership
At a time when fleets are on the road more than ever, it’s important to find ways to lower your operating costs. Oftentimes a small change can provide drastic improvements. The Shell Rotella Value Calculator is a helpful tool that demonstrates the total savings a partnership with Breaux Petroleum and Shell Lubricants can bring you. These savings are delivered through a complete portfolio of premium products and unmatched technical support.
Train your drivers on fuel-efficient driving techniques and incentivize them to reduce fuel consumption. When drivers are aware of acceleration, braking, or speeding habits, they are more likely to be conscientious and time-efficient behind the wheel. This helps monitor driver behavior to ensure compliance with safe and efficient driving practices. In addition, your drivers can optimize routes to reduce travel time and fuel consumption.
At Breaux Petroleum, we believe it’s possible to increase efficiency, productivity, and safety all at the same time. Contact your sales rep or call us today at 800.375.3358 for more information on how we can assist with your fleet’s unique needs.
