The vehicle is too old to guarantee the safety of drivers and goods. When the vehicle breaks down in the middle of the road, it may cause some serious problems.
Therefore, you need to set up the indicators to determine the appropriate time to replace the vehicle, avoiding the use of obsolete vehicles.
2. Train drivers about fuel-efficient driving habits
Good driving habits can save significant fuel costs, so you should organize regular training sessions for your drivers.
You can also regularly remind them by sending a weekly message, pasting the driving rules into the cabin, or creating a rewarding campaign across the entire fleet.
Besides, you should also increase the cohesion, sharing with the driver team. When you create a good relationship, the driver will have a sense of self-discipline about saving fuel, preserving assets for the company. This is a long-term, sustainable way of managing drivers.
