Managing fleets in general and managing drivers in particular effectively will help increase delivery productivity, ensuring goods reach consumers as quickly as possible. So are you allocating fleet management schedules, especially driver schedules, manually scheduling transportation?

Let's take a quick look at how an automated transportation management system (TMS) can help you run your delivery business more efficiently (and more profitably).

TMS Optimal Fleet Management, Driver Management

1. Effective driver management

The most important thing you can do to increase operational efficiency? Manage your driver schedule in the most efficient way possible. You'll increase delivery efficiency, tighten costs, and save time.

The question is how to use TMS software to manage your driver activity.

Manage runs by location or frequency: Your software will allow you to view the maximum loaded weight and view overloaded vehicles, so you can plan ahead for jobs with multiple sectors.

Another useful feature of TMS is that it can batch edit and reassign work to different drivers or dates. The system will provide you with detailed reports so you can calculate fleet data, check weight, and measure delivery efficiency.

All of this helps you: (1) make informed decisions, (2) tighten your entire operation, and (3) ultimately increase profitability (through cost reduction) as you increase delivery efficiency and optimize driver productivity.

2. Use route optimization to stay on track

Today's consumers and retailers expect your delivery to come as you speak. You need to be sure that your driver will meet every allotted time period throughout their working day.

When a delivery service arrives early, it can be as disruptive and frustrating as arriving late. The TMS system helps with route optimization turning route allocation into a one-step process.

So you can save time and reduce the hassle of planning driver's trips. The system helps you track transportation activities as follows:

  • Driver Workflow
  • Order of their stops
  • Distance between stops
  • Delivery history

When the most efficient route is created, your driver can be guided by navigating each turn. Accordingly, when the driver has the correct departure and arrival time, it means that the business knows that the driver works as planned.

So businesses can use the reported metrics to optimize delivery efficiency and complete KPIs and meet their performance metrics.


In short, the transportation management system is one of the optimal technology solutions today to help businesses manage fleets in general and manage drivers in particular effectively.
