How you can track?

Instant vehicle location

Knowing the exact times a vehicle moves, gives you a digital log and timesheet showing what time a vehicle left the depot and what time it arrived.

By marking common rest spots, roadhouses and landmarks, you can see that vehicles are at the designated rest spots without needing to reach the driver and disturb their rest.

Enhanced Communication Across the Fleet

 

Your management team understands your business objectives and can take control anytime to locate and manage your van fleet effectively, without ever needing the drivers’ input.

Knowing where your vans are and what delays they may be experiencing gives you critical business intelligence to help you communicate more effectively with your team.

Instant Location of Every Van

 

Knowing the exact times a van moves, gives you a digital log and timesheet showing what time it left the depot and what time it arrived.

By marking common customer sites, lunch bars and landmarks, you can see that vehicles are at the designated sites without needing to reach the driver.

Optimisation of Your Fleet’s Performance

 

Analyse what sort of utilisation your van fleet is getting so you don’t need to rely on claims of staff wanting vans.

See which vans are the most heavily used and which are hardly used, to help you make decisions about when to update to save on running costs.

Early Warnings on Approach

 

Your schedulers and support staff can use BlackBox tracking and see immediately where a van is. This allows them to judge whether the van is on schedule, if it’s worth redirecting it to a new job, dispatching a support vehicle, or calling in the unloading team.

Smarter Maintenance Scheduling

 

You can check each van’s odometer anytime from the comfort of your office. This gives you accountability and helps your team manage distances travelled each day, check the fuel bill against distance travelled and compare running cost with alternative vehicles (justifying purchasing decisions). It also helps you schedule servicing on time, making your van fleet more reliable ensuring it’s running more economically.

Minimise Your Wear and Tear Instantly

 

Monitoring excessive idling can help reduce costs through wasteful fuel burn, keeping your vans in better shape and reducing maintenance.

Identify Key Cost Savings

 

Optimise under-utilised vans by tracking distance and hours used, it’s easy to see which vans are sitting idle or not being used to their capacity. This maximises your asset investment and shows which vans are more available.

Locating where the issues are and fixing them creates opportunities for streamlining and improving production from each van.

Does a certain loading dock always keep your drivers waiting? Keeping the wheels turning with a load onboard keeps costs down and production up.

Set Predictive Alerts & Automations

 

Automated alerts can be setup to notify supervisors — even on their mobile phone. This could be a convenient check for when a driver gets back in the evening, or has pulled up for the night. Using technology helps reduce time logging data, but also gives you some comfort knowing when areas of interest and regular milestones are being met.

Automate service reminders when vans reach set distance or time usage milestones. This simplifies the task of managing services and ensures nothing is ever overlooked.

Reminders for servicing a fire extinguisher or any other onboard item that needs inspection can also be set.

You can even check that a van went to a recognised service point.

Identify Every Driver Training

 

Monitoring harsh braking and cornering can highlight poor driver performance which adds to running costs, fuel, tyres, brakes and overall servicing, but might also point to potentially reckless or dangerous behaviours that need addressing.

You can also see if your team of van drivers are taking the best route or travelling via their favourite pub or bakery for lunch.

Optimise Safety & Security

 

With the ability to monitor both the van and driver 24/7 through software, automated notification updates and cameras, the safety and security of the driver and van are never more than a keystroke away.

Justify Expenses & Overtime with Enhanced Mileage Records

 

Measuring loading and unloading times helps to locate, isolate and improve time management issues. Why does it vary by driver? Take longer at one site? One shift is quicker than another?

Site attendance times are now much easier and faster to log and report, taking only minutes, where previously it could have taken most of the day.

Staff overtime claims can also be checked against actual van use time reported.

Or you may discover the distance travelled to a site is further than both parties thought, or the time on site was longer than anticipated. Irrefutable documented variance evidence may give you an opportunity to renegotiate.

Testimonials

BlackBox is designed to scale with your business, which means you can start with one van, your entire fleet, or anything else in between. You choose!

Generate Performance Reports

Know who was driving a certain van at a particular time with a logged Driver ID. This helps with reporting, knowing who to forward speeding fines to, who might be doing harm to your company’s reputation and needs training, and who should be encouraged for a job well done.

Manage Driver Fatigue

Monitoring stationary times across your van fleet helps control fatigue management, giving some comfort that drivers are taking their mandatory rest breaks and complying with any custom rules such as ‘do not drive after midnight’.

Boost Morale with Rewards

You can use BlackBox to build up a dashboard identifying your 5 or 10 best (or worst) drivers. Use this to create some fun rewards for those that save money through effective use of the van, encourage some fun inter-company rivalry identifying the top travellers, highest use van, clients needing most visits and so on.

Identify and Allocate Vans

Easily retain all relevant details for every van in your fleet in one place, helping you identify and allocate specific assets:

Allocated driver and their contact details
Make and model of van
Purchase date
Odometer reading (at any time) – aligned to van at time of install
Fleet number/name
Registration Plate Number

Generate Proof of Attendance

Quickly provide evidence of your vehicle being onsite and for how long and you can efficiently deal with claims of non-delivery or questions about attendance at site. This makes settling claims about your bill to your customers a breeze when you need to prove that you are as good as you say you are.

Track Down Lost Or Stolen Vans

The BlackBox reporting system offers a rock solid, highly credible tool to verify and corroborate details with staff, customers, police or even the court, as it has been several times already.

Faced with a traffic violation or accident, the company can help identify the right driver, pass on fines and in some cases BlackBox data can even be used to support a driver’s innocence, all without the driver becoming distracted.

In the event of an incident or theft, the recovery process can be greatly enhanced with information that can be sent to police, government or insurance. It may also protect you if you can verify the drivers account of a story, or Police can be sent straight to the van’s location.
