Using Commercial Vehicle Technology to Conduct a Pre-trip Inspection

While the importance of conducting a post-trip inspection is always stressed, a pre-trip inspection can be just as beneficial. Documenting a pre-trip inspection using a paper-based system can quickly feel tedious and time-consuming. Fortunately, commercial vehicle technology makes conducting pre-trip inspections seamless and effortless.

Review Most Recent Inspection Report

A pre-trip inspection is most beneficial when you can review the most recent inspection report beforehand. This gives you a guideline that you can follow as you conduct the inspection. If there were any issues highlighted on the previous inspection, then you can use this time to verify that they are fixed or addressed. The mobile app makes it extremely easy to review previous inspections while on the go.

Flag Issues Through the Platform

The main reason for conducting a pre-trip inspection is to ensure that the driver is comfortable with the health of the vehicle. This is also done to catch any issues that may have gone unnoticed. If you notice issues during the inspection, they can easily be flagged in the platform.

Communicate with Drivers and Supervisors

The vehicle inspection technology makes it easy to keep anyone from managers to drivers in the loop. You can instantly update the status of vehicles and issues through the app. This helps to prevent idle or wasted time and cuts down the timeframe needed to find a solution for a problem.

Routine pre-trip inspections can be the difference between a well-running operation and one that is riddled with problems. Contact us to learn more about what commercial vehicle technology can offer your business.
