Preventative Maintenance

The biggest asset that most trucking companies have is their fleet of vehicles and equipment. One of the best ways to protect this asset is preventative maintenance (PM). PM is essential to running a profitable trucking company. Your Transportation Management System (TMS) software should make monitoring and tracking PM automatic and almost effortless.

Your maintenance software should include the following:

  • Ease of use
  • Flexibility
  • Automatic integration with your dispatching module
  • Notification to dispatchers of a PM due as they are dispatching
  • PM scheduling for each piece of equipment independently
  • Work order history
  • Parts purchase orders
  • Parts receipts
  • Parts inventory control
  • Driver repair requests notify the mechanic and dispatcher of needed repairs
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Accounts Payable
  • General Ledger accounting
  • Maintenance profit or loss reporting

If you are using a stand alone maintenance software package or your TMS does not provide all these features, contact us now to view a demonstration of the best TMS in the country, TruckMaster. Don’t let another PM get missed. Do it now.
