The essence of transport enterprises consists in moving people and goods from one place to another. The growing competitiveness on the transportation and dispatching market enforces implementation of tools aiming to increase the work efficiency. The GIS systems provide
tools that improve the management of vehicles' fleet. Transport optimisation, analyses and planning of communication connections (planning of visits' dates, division into suppliers), routes' optimisation as well as monitoring of the whole vehicles' fleet are difficult and laborious to carry out. Usage of GIS systems for optimisation and analyses allows for matching the transport parameters with the current needs of the company in an easy and fast way.
The systems for vehicles' fleet management allow for visualisation of all spatial information and provide the possibility of modelling the distribution of the future financial investment and company's expansion.
Application of such kind of systems will give you measurable benefits which in consequence will lead to:
- reduction of costs of fuel consumption thanks to accurate routes' planning
- increase of work efficiency throughout reduction of travel time
- reduction of time needed to prepare the accurate routes
- reduction of employment level in logistics department thanks to work automation
