At The Lilly Company, we’ve helped companies just like yours optimize their forklift fleets for decades. Choosing the right fleet management solution partner can help reduce the total cost of ownership of your forklifts and other heavy equipment.

Fleet management is a combination of maintenance, equipment acquisition, and operations. These different tasks combine to help reduce your total cost of ownership. Fleet management questions include:
A proper fleet management program will highlight areas for improvement in your forklift fleet operations by digging into these items. Many management programs rely on a telematics program to track granular usage and performance data. These technical points become essential for reducing your total cost of ownership.

A correctly implemented fleet management program will help reduce your total cost per hour across your fleets. Its benefits can extend beyond simple cost reduction, however.
Beyond total cost of ownership, fleet management can help you make sure that your fleet is made up of the right equipment configurations. If you are buying more capacity than is needed, you can save money when obtaining new units with a lower capacity. Users can also reinforce their safety culture by implementing electronic safety checklists to enforce operator accountability and potentially avoid OSHA violations. Fleet management can even help track operator behaviors to track potential safety issues in need of retraining.
