Fueling a fleet vehicle is easy, right? It takes only a couple of minutes of your driver’s time. They can pull up to the pump, swipe their fuel card, fill up their vehicle, and hit the road. Easy indeed, but is this fueling method the most efficient use of your drivers’ time, fuel, and vehicles too? Many different factors go into the decision to go with mobile fueling. Read on to learn about the benefits and the challenges of mobile fueling!
Benefits: High Performance
Using a fuel provider will ensure assets function optimally since the right product is dispended for individual equipment or vehicles each time. Further, the data that is collected from the specialist’s device could help spot any underlying problems before they become serious problems that could cause unexpected downtime.
Improved Productivity and Efficiency and Less Wear and Tear on Vehicles
Since mobile fueling will save drivers from the long trip to the fueling station, drivers are now able to focus on their core responsibilities. Plus, with no need to detour from routes to get to the station and then detour back into the route, time is saved, and there is less wear and tear on any vehicles used. Fleet managers can now gain better control over routes, and control over routes means better route efficiency and will improve productivity while also boosting safety.
Challenges: Proper Access
A big challenge is making sure that the mobile fueling truck can get into your equipment or vehicles. The site where vehicles and equipment are located has to be easily accessible, and the vehicles are parked so the fuel tank is accessible for each person. The kind of fuel delivery could also present challenges. If the mobile fuel truck is a massive fuel tanker, it might not be able to safely maneuver in the lot and might damage the asphalt too.
