Truck drivers need to deliver their cargo within a limited amount of time. This can be challenging because truckers are only allowed to drive a certain number of hours per day by law. Therefore, truck drivers need to be as efficient as possible in order to get their cargo delivered on time.
vWorkApp can help trucking companies increase efficiency and save money on gas at the same time.
How can vWorkApp increase a trucker’s efficiency?
With vWorkApp’s GPS and turn-by-turn navigation, drivers can find the best routes possible for their deliveries. That means more direct routes, fewer wrong turns and the ability to navigate around heavy traffic. This could lead to saving money on gasoline.
How is that different from any other GPS? vWorkApp streamlines communications between dispatchers and drivers. This consolidation of navigation and streamlined communication creates efficient job completions.
How can vWorkApp help a trucking company save money?
vWorkApp can help a trucking company save money through streamlined dispatching operations, reduced administrative employees within the company, and less money spent on gasoline.
For now, I will focus on how vWorkApp can save a trucking company money on gasoline.
Here’s a hypothetical* example of how much money vWorkApp could save for a small trucking company with 5 truckers:
Let’s say your small trucking company spends about $75,000 per year on gas. Based on one case study, vWorkApp can save a trucking company 20% in gas expenses. For the above example, that’s $15,000 per year that’s not spent on gas.
vWorkApp is a free tool. However, you could choose to pay $49.99 per month per worker to get a few extra features (including historical data access for up to 2 years, ability to export data to Excel, and premium support). That would cost your company (with its team of 5 drivers) $2,999.40 per year. ($49.99 per month X 12 months X 5 truckers).
Even with the paid version, a trucking company would still save $12,000.60.
Of course, there are many other ways that vWorkApp could help foster work efficiencies within a trucking company. We will soon publish the aforementioned case study to further demonstrate the benefits of vWorkApp.
