There’s an old expression that says it’s much better to put a fence at the top of a cliff than an ambulance at the bottom. The same is true of preventative maintenance. Servicing a vehicle at the first sign of trouble saves a hauler the expense and hassle of repairing a crippled vehicle in the field and scrambling to reroute its remaining stops.
VehiclePort® from Routeware gives haulers the insight they need to see exactly what is ailing their trucks. VehiclePort analyzes the engine and transmission fault codes generated by the truck’s on-board Jbus (also known as the CAN bus or J1708/J1939). These codes indicate when something is awry with the vehicle; things like intake manifold issues or engine coolant problems.
With one click, users can get charts and tables that spotlight which trucks that need the most urgent attention. Additionally, VehiclePort provides alerts on how the vehicle is being treated. Behavior such as hard braking, jackrabbit starts, and excessive idling is flagged and sent back to the office in real-time.
Additionally, VehiclePort provides complete fuel economy monitoring. Consumption on a per-truck and a fleet-wide basis directly correlates with engine fault codes, letting you simultaneously improve vehicle performance and fuel economy. This dual functionality allows VehiclePort to deliver an excellent return on investment through fuel cost savings and avoidance of costly repair bills.
As with fuel economy, fluctuations in truck emissions can be an indicator of poor vehicle performance. VehiclePort can monitor diesel emissions by greenhouse gas, assigning each truck a Greenhouse Gas Score. Not only does this highlight potential maintenance issues, it allows haulers to reduce their carbon footprint and shows the communities they serve that they are at the forefront of the sustainability movement.
With vehicle health monitoring, driver tracking, fuel consumption trending, and emissions reporting, VehiclePort is the ideal tool to keep your fleet in optimal condition.
