Fleet management is a multi-faceted and taxing responsibility that requires business owners to stay on top of their fleet vehicles. Whether it is a larger business utilizing many large trucks or a small business that has just a few vehicles, the tasks at hand are to minimize cost expenditures, optimize efficiency, increase productivity, and stay on top of vehicle maintenance, to name a few. Simply put, managing commercial fleet vehicles/trucks is no easy task.
According to the U.S. GAO, (U.S. Government Accountability Office) utilizing telecommunications and other applications (telematics) to control and see the status of the commercial vehicles can provide fleet managers with key information in an effort to address common issues and provide sound tracking solutions.
The Name of the Game is Minimize Losses; Maximize Fleet Operations
Business owners want to find a means to keep their fleet claims down but need sound business solutions to improve fleet safety management in an effort to do so.

In fact, one of the more reputable fleet safety management companies is Azuga.
