Summer flew past, autumn draws to an end, and winter is coming. For businesses this means a new quarter, but for transportation businesses specifically, winter should be so much more than just a new quarter.

As we all know, running and maintaining a fleet comes with extensive responsibility.
Safety is among the key factors and considerations transportation businesses have to give attention to on a daily basis, and rightly so. Safety of your fleet is crucial, not just for your business but for the public that your fleet passes daily on the roads.

This said, what are you doing to prepare your fleet for winter, ensuring all applicable checks and operational factors are in place?
