What is Fleet Maintenance?

Fleet maintenance is the process of keeping delivery and distribution vehicles operating in good condition so that they can stay on the road longer and function efficiently without breaking down. Fleet vehicles traverse long miles and bear different varieties of climates, and transporting merchandise in compromised vehicles is a massive safety risk.

Regular repairs and upkeep of fleet vehicles offer several hidden benefits to businesses involved in distribution and delivery of goods as well as people mobility services.

Why is regular fleet maintenance important?

  • Regular upkeep improves the on-ground life and productivity of the fleet
  • It improves delivery efficiencies and reduces delays and missed delivery rates significantly
  • On time deliveries and transportation in well-maintained vehicles improves customer satisfaction with a brand
  • Frequent maintenance reduces fleet repair and replacement costs for the business
  • Timely maintenance service records help in increasing the fleet’s resale value
