What is Fleet Maintenance?

Fleet maintenance involves routine servicing of your company's vehicles to help ensure their continued proper functioning and safety, as well as reliability for usage. This process plays a significant role in driver safety, reducing operational costs, enhancing productivity, and enabling preventative maintenance, among other benefits. Overall, fleet maintenance is a crucial aspect of running a successful and sustainable fleet operation.

Preventative maintenance vs corrective maintenance

In order to keep a fleet of vehicles operating smoothly and efficiently, two essential types of maintenance are necessary ⎯ preventative maintenance and corrective maintenance. Preventative maintenance aims to help prevent issues before they occur, whereas corrective maintenance addresses problems that have already developed. By giving priority to both types of maintenance, fleet managers can help minimize downtime and unexpected expenses, while helping to ensure that their vehicles remain in good condition.

Preventative maintenance

Preventative maintenance involves proactive and regular maintenance procedures that can identify potential issues and are performed to help prevent breakdowns and maintain the optimal working condition of the vehicles. Fleet maintenance is a form of preventative because it involves regular servicing and tasks such as oil changes, tire rotations, and scheduled inspections.

Corrective maintenance

Corrective maintenance involves repairs that are necessary to fix any issues that may arise. This type of maintenance can typically involve unexpected costs and vehicle downtime. Its primary goal is to help restore systems that are not functioning properly and may be negatively impacting important aspects of the vehicle, such as safety or performance.
