I love seeing how FleetGO can contribute to the efficiency and safety of the logistics sector. It is a challenging sector, and it’s great to see that we can make a difference.

What are some of the challenges currently facing the logistics sector?

There are several challenges that the logistics sector is currently facing. One of the biggest challenges is rising fuel prices, which directly impacts transport costs and can significantly reduce companies’ profit margins.

Companies need to adapt to these changes while maintaining their efficiency and profitability.

Can you tell us more about FleetGO’s new Vehicle Inspection app and the feedback from customers?

Yes, we are very excited about our new Vehicle Inspection app. With this app, drivers can easily perform vehicle inspections and quickly report any issues to the relevant parties. This contributes to the safety and reliability of the fleet. At FleetGO, we have already received a lot of positive feedback from customers that have been using the app, and we are pleased to see that it is being well received. Customers that don’t use the Vehicle Inspection app yet, are always welcome to get in touch with us.

Moreover, we are constantly working on new solutions and functionalities to help our customers optimize their operations. We are confident that we can make an important contribution to the development of the logistics sector.
