Odoo Fleet Management and Its Applications

Fleet
A Fleet, as we know, is a set of vehicles, especially commercial vehicles. 
Fleet Management
Fleet management is the process of managing commercial vehicles for the benefit of an organization or business. 
An efficient fleet management system will help the business to improve revenue as well as efficiency. An efficient fleet management system will help the business to manage all vehicle-related operations including the repair and maintenance work and the management of the crew who drive and manage the vehicles. 
There can be different types of fleet management. The first one is fleet management companies. For them, their entire business is related to fleet management.
The second type of fleet management is the fleet operations managed by other industries. Here, some organizations or businesses may be manufacturing or sales, may require a number of vehicles for different purposes and they may be running a separate fleet management wing.
Fleet Managers
The majority of large business ventures operating a number of vehicles will have fleet managers. Even schools and educational institutions that run institutional buses or vehicles appoint fleet managers. The responsibility of a fleet manager is to efficiently coordinate all operations related to the fleet. The fleet manager will be responsible to track fuel consumption by the vehicle and the total running time of the vehicle. The manager will also take care of repair and maintenance work.
The appointment of the driver, tracking the behavior of the driver, and other employee-related management can also be considered as the responsibility of the fleet manager. 
The manager will be entrusted with the task of route planning and tracking. He will also have to avoid the wastage of fuel and damage to vehicles.

Vehicle Service Log

A fleet manager may have to manage 100 or more vehicles at the same time. He will also have to track these vehicles and maintain a record of their current positions, destinations, travel time, etc. GPS facility can also be used for the purpose.

The use of large numbers of vehicles and the movement of vehicles to and fro different worksites make it mandatory to have a proper ERP tool to manage the vehicles and drivers.
Petroleum Industry
