Fleet Maintenance - 39

Reviewing the highest cost silos can help
implement better maintenance practices, address
concerns such as staff training, and analyze
current operating procedures.
"If we see a driver having multiple hard brake
applications, we can go back to the driver and
ask, 'What's causing you to have all these hard
brake applications? Is it a factor of the conditions that you're driving in?
Is it construction? Or is it just
the type of driving behavior
that we want to change?'"
Copot says.
Ultimately, the feedback
from this data is beneficial for
two reasons: it can drive the
fleet to make better purchasing decisions on future asset
specifications, and it can
help the industry to make a
better product.
Copot says the Transervice
team will work on an individual basis for each fleet it
serves, to ensure the recommended service, and even
future truck specifications,
are in the best interest of
their customers.
"Your feedback, especially
as you're getting all this data
back from your telematics, [is]
feeding all this information to
people and sharing [it, which]
certainly helps [the] overall
improvement of the vehicles,"
he says.
As far as challenges, the
first step is buy-in throughout the company. Once the
decision is made to move
forward, integration of software and consolidation of
data can be a challenge, says
Copot. "Getting the [software
systems] to talk to each other
and pull out some sort of
dashboard - these are the
10 items that we want to pull
out from all 1,000 trucks, and
here's the format that we want
to put in so it's easy to read
- we can always get into the
weeds a little further and find
out what those numbers are
showing us."
While predictive maintenance is still in its early stages,
it will continue to drive optimization with vehicle utilization and help to improve
vehicle uptime.
Copot says that technicians who receive active notifications from an asset in the
service bay are becoming more
familiar with the proactive
maintenance process.
The first step is plugging
in every vehicle that comes

to the shop with a scan tool, and then reviewing
the codes and engine data to become accustomed
to the process.
"It doesn't necessarily have to be the person
who's looking at the computer, but the technicians are getting used to it too. Those people that
are on the shop floors, men and women turning
the wrenches, they're getting prompted with

these messages and getting more familiarity with
[understanding] what's broken on that piece of
equipment that came in, or scheduling [the equipment] in and already knowing what that repair
flow is going to look like."
