3 Trucking Maintenance Tips

2

  1. Learn DOT Requirements: The Department of Transportation (DOT) provides truckers with truck maintenance guidelines for safe trucking. If you do not keep up with these guidelines, you risk hefty fines, so familiarize yourself with these regulations.
  2. Regular Tune Up: Small things may go wrong with your truck from time to time. Getting these problems fixed as they happen, rather than waiting things out, will prevent even bigger problems from occurring down the line.
  3. Clean: Simply cleaning your truck regularly prevents dust, grime, and rust build up, helping your truck function at its best.

 

Do you need help maintaining a fleet of trucks? Tatems offers truck and trailer equipment maintenance software to help you track when your trucks need tune-ups.

New Parts Bin Location and Bin Number

A few weeks ago I sent an email covering some of the new features we are working on.

Here are links to the previous videos

New default search and sort preferences and hide out of service equipment 2 minute and 15 second video Here

You can see the new fuel log features being added in a  3 minute video posted Here

And here are some great improvements to the Repair Codes Cost Per Mile/Km/ Hour report and you can see that 2 minute video Here.

This weeks preview video is a little UNDER 2 minutes and shows how we are adding Bin Location and Bin Number to the Parts Inventory and how that information shows up when adding a parts to a work order.

We are still testing and working on getting everything working properly before we release 4.5.15

One thing were are working on now is that the fuel log allows duplicate odometer readings. It seems some people want duplicates but others don't. So in this upcoming version we will present you with a choice.  Then if you choose not to allows duplicates but you already have duplicate odometer readings in the fuel log you will see a report showing you all the duplicates to remove so that TATEMS can disallow them moving forward.

We will also be changing the main odometer and hours for the equipment to eliminate duplicates.

I’ll let you know when the new version of TATEMS is available (hopefully very soon!)

Staying Entertained On the Road

1

The truck driving lifestyle can be lonely and repetitive. With the right technology however, it’s easy to stay entertained during long drives.

Audio Books: Smart phones make it easy to find and download audio books for your listening pleasure. Audible is just one app with a 100,000+ selection of books.

Podcasts: Podcasts are almost always free, they cover almost any topic you can think of and can help you keep up with current happenings.

Music: The FM radio comes and goes and can be quite boring. Pandora and other music streaming services are often free and offer a much wider variety of music and more control than what’s offered through the dial.

Smart phones and modern technology make it easier than ever to stay entertained on the road. With a little research, planning ahead and downloading, you can be set with entertainment for days!

New default search and sort prefences and hide out of service equipment

A few weeks ago I sent an email covering some of the new features we are working on.

Two weeks ago I shot a short 3 minute video showing you some new features in just the fuel log

for TATEMS Fleet Maintenance Software.

You can see last weeks 3 minute video posted Here

And last week I shot a short 2 minute video showing you some great improvements to the Cost Per Mile/Km/ Hour report and you can see that 2 minute video Here.

This weeks preview video is a little over 2 minutes and shows you some improvements we are making to to allow you to default to the same search and sort choices when you open TATEMS and how you will be able to hide Out of Service equipment so you don't have to wade through equipment you don't want or need to see in the list.

We are still testing and working on getting everything working properly before we release 4.5.15

I'll let you know when the new version of TATEMS is available (hopefully very soon!)

A Brief History of Freight Shipping

The process of moving goods by land and sea goes back for centuries. Even one of the most well-known birth stories of the United States, The Boston Tea Party, was an attack on a fleet of cargo ships.

3
As populations grew and the industrial revolution kicked in full force, the amount of goods needing to be transported increased at an exponential rate. Modern cargo ships are capable of carrying several thousand tons of goods from one country to another.

The amount of products being moved at any given time is so vast freight companies have to use specialized software, like the kind made by TATEMS, just to keep track of it all!
