Rolling Cost per Mile
Fleet managers understand the importance of solving problems before they happen. Nothing is more stressful or expensive than having a temperature sensitive load stuck on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere Texas in August. The load of seafood has about two hours before the temperature starts to rise and the $200,000 shipment is lost. Worse yet, a good customer is lost. Routine fleet maintenance ensures this scenario remains only a bad dream.

Routine Fleet Maintenance
Reducing Unscheduled Downtime
Fleet maintenance is about profitability. Spend a little to save a lot. Investing in maintenance helps reduce the unscheduled downtime and keeps your shipments ahead of maintenance problems. Having the right data to work with is key to this process.
The GO System provides four excellent maintenance capabilities for fleets of all sizes.
- Schedule routine maintenance such as oil changes and annual inspections by odometer or engine hours.
- Use the engine diagnostic data provided with the Pro and ProPlus service to spot issues before they fail.
- View odometer, fault code, and status data remotely.
- Integrate maintenance data using free APIs
Fleet maintenance reminder rules establish the rule template to be used throughout the fleet. An example might be the standard for an oil change is every 7,500 miles on new vehicles. To standardize oil changes a rule is created and made available company wide. Rules can be created based on miles driven, engine hours or months.

Since the GO device gets the odometer from the vehicle automatically when available, fleet managers do not have to chase drivers for odometer updates. A weekly odometer report can be scheduled or the status is displayed in the MyFleetistics portal at all times.
Parent – Child Reporting
Fleetistics offers multi-location fleets to share key maintenance information using parent/child reporting. In the past fleet managers had to log into every account to get basic information each month. If Fleetistics does not offer the report you are looking for, it can be custom developed for a reasonable fee.
