It is important to understand that Onspot is not a one-size-fits-all product due to the variety of vehicles used across a multitude of industries.

As a fleet manager, running a cost effective and efficient fleet safely is paramount to its success. This is a challenge that must be faced and overcome on a daily basis. When presented with any number of external forces out of the control of the fleet operator, then this process becomes even more difficult.

There is probably not one single fleet manager in the transportation business who dares to run a fleet operation without insurance.

My position as Western Regional Sales Manager for Onspot gives me the opportunity to meet with fleet managers in my territory. Whether I am at a trade show or at the customers location providing training or a fleet review these individuals always talk about challenges that come up and how they are resolved.
Winter weather driving season never fails to surprise drivers. However, for fleets, winter weather driving conditions can affect not only how vehicles stay on the road but also the efficiency of completing their deliveries.
