Data Manager Helps Eliminate Human Frailty In Transport And Freight Sector

Human error in the freight and transport sector is normally inadvertently done but consequences can be very costly.

In the transport, freight and logistics sectors, frequent movements of stock and the vehicles that transport the stock can put teams of employees under 24/7 demands and increase the likelihood of errors being made along the information chain.

The very vehicles moving this freight – fleets of trucks and vans – are largely reliant on limiting the potential for human error because managing any aspects of the operation is a round-the-clock assignment, especially for tyre management.

This is where the tyre dealers have traditionally stepped in to take control. All the major brands have until now managed the paperwork associated with fitting, checking and changing tyres on trucks and vans, and their success has been limited by the human factor.

However, a new Australian developed technology – run by powerful software, yet very simple to use – has reduced the intensity of human input required for tyre management to eliminate almost all potential problems.

Bear’s Tyre Tracker now does this work with ease and for fleet managers this means reliance on tyre management can be taken in-house and away from tyre brand dealerships.

Managing Director of Bear’s Tyres and developer of the world first Bear’s Tyre Tracker, Mr Brad Bearman, says even operators of massive national fleets can now depend on a new level of diligence which they thought was never possible.

“The Tyre Tracker is diligent in everything it does,” said Mr Bearman. “Rather than rely on brand dealerships to maintain complicated paperwork on every tyre on a fleet, the Tyre Tracker simply calls for input of the speedometer reading at every scheduled stop.

“From years of experience, I found that the brand dealerships did their very best in keeping records of a fleet’s tyres with what was basically account keeping software, and a lot of people input.

“But the big companies such as national-profile road transport companies and high-rate courier firms don’t pay big dollars any more for a couple of overworked employees to deliver a preferential outcome.

“The Bear’s Tyre Tracker has turned the maintenance gamble on its head with an infusion of modern technology that acts as a virtual ‘big brother’ on every single tyre a transporter owns.

“How hard is it to key in information from four tyre changes or a speedometer reading into a computer and letting the power of its analytics do the work for you?

“The Tyre Tracker ensures a simple, non-technical and non-laborious way to get all the technical data put into the company’s management system – therefore providing a level of diligence well beyond that limited by common human frailty.

“Its debut on the market has completely overhauled the way fleet tyres are managed, turning them from a cost ridden consumable into a genuine capital asset and allowing even the most non-technical staff to gainfully utilise its power.”

Bear’s Tyre Tracker is a software base system that logs every single tyre owned by a fleet operator and allows these tyres to be properly tracked, right down to the axle on which they are fitted, and ensures optimised rotation and rebalancing to extract every bit possible from the expected lifespan of a tyre.

The high level of traceability is arguably the world’s first opportunity to eradicate blatant tyre wastage and hands management of this resource directly into the hands of the owner, rather than the dealer.
