Trucking fleet management can be a tedious task, often involving manual spreadsheets and repetitive data entry.

Among a myriad of challenges facing fleet owners is rising fuel costs, which make route optimization and efficiency top of mind for managers.

Transmetrics, which provides artificial intelligence (AI)-powered logistics solutions to logistics enterprises like DHL Kuehne+Nagel, and DB Schenker, has announced a new tool aimed at solving pain points for vehicle fleet owners.

FleetMetrics integrates data across fleet management systems — such as Telematics, TMS, fuel & toll transactions, etc. — providing organizations with unprecedented operational and cost visibility.

  • Performance Monitoring: Continuous monitoring of driver and truck performance metrics pinpoints improvement areas, ensuring operational efficiency;
  • Fuel Efficiency: FleetMetrics allows automated inputs from fuel transactions and constant fuel efficiency monitoring. Ensuring process automation & constant fuel efficiency monitoring across operational categories;

  • In follow-up releases, Transmetrics plans to add many additional functionalities including automated Load to Capacity Matching that further optimizes load distribution and truck utilization by matching cargo loads to available trucks.

“FleetMetrics is more than just a product – it’s an innovation that will change how trucking companies can manage their fleets. It provides them with the tools to improve their operations, increase their revenue, and boost their profitability like never before.” shares Asparuh Koev, CEO of Transmetrics.
