The threats that will put your trucks on the side of the road haven’t changed much–brakes, lights and tires are still the main culprits, according to Dave Walters, senior solutions engineer for Trimble Transportation–but what has changed is what you can do about it.
The service data streaming off of your trucks are fueling everything from forthcoming predictive maintenance solutions to today’s service streamlining processes. As the fleet manager, you’re the gatekeeper of the data–you have visibility into every fault code, every repair order, every service event in a truck’s lifecycle, but are those data points connected?
I connected with Walters and Renaldo Adler, industry principal of TMT with Trimble Transportation, to find out what data a fleet can share with an outside service provider and how fleets that run their own maintenance can integrate their data in their service process. Watch the video above for all of the insight.
