Winter conditions - The challenge for fleet managers and drivers

Written by Leonard D'Orlando,

The winter season is here again bringing with it cold temperatures and inclement weather. For many fleet managers and drivers in Europe and around the world winter presents new challenges. Wise managers and drivers implement strategic plans, utilize tools and equipment to be safe and productive during these times.


Above all else safety first. Bottomline is that the fleet must operate in a safe manner for the benefit of everyone and to be profitable. Day in and day out fleet managers dedicate their time to ensuring this happens. Equipment is serviced and the latest tools and technology are used within their budget.


Keep the wheels turning. The other part of fleet performance is efficiency and meeting deadlines. Again, this is a daily challenge for managers and drivers which only becomes more challenging when operating during the winter season. Planning the routes and for the unexpected is good practice especially during these months to ensure a smooth and seamless operation.


Onspot providing both safety and efficiency. The auto chain system is a great tool for both the fleet manager and driver when it comes to safety and meeting deadlines. At its most basic purpose the Onspot automatic snow chain system provides the driver with traction on snow and ice from the convenience of their cab. But it goes beyond just its general operation.


The system also provides piece of mind. For the fleet manager it is knowing that when operated proactively their drivers will not get stuck in wintry conditions. This means that equipment will not be damaged, and no calls will be needed for a tow.


For the driver it is piece of mind knowing that the system is available for the wintry conditions and road ahead. It means making a delivery on time or even just getting the to a safe location off the road when persistent conditions impact safe travel.
