Fleet Management

Our fleet management team is backed by the latest technology to ensure optimal availability and productivity. These include following strategic areas:

  • Fleet Maintenance
  • Vehicle Optimization
  • Driver Management
  • Health and Safety

Du Plessis Sand operates an immaculate fleet of late model vehicles. All vehicles are purchased with full maintenance contracts from the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer). This enables us to focus on our core business which is the safe and timeous delivery of our customers’ goods, while our equipment receives expert attention form product-specific trained professionals. Having our vehicles serviced by the OEM, also contributes to the second hand value of our fleet.

Routine inspections and preventative maintenance is carried out by our fully equipped in-house workshop which includes the following facilities:

  • Dedicated inspection bays.
  • Service and general maintenance workshop.
  • Dedicated tyre maintenance facility.
  • Dedicated welding/manufacturing facility.
  • Spray paint and cosmetic repair facility.
  • Fully equipped wash bay.

We take vehicle maintenance very seriously and our workshop is equipped to carry out our own wheel alignment, hydraulic repairs, tyre repairs, aluminium welding, sandblasting, spray painting, etc.  We also have 24/7 roadside assistance units on standby in the unlikely event of any on-road problems.

All mechanical maintenance related activities are managed and recorded with the help of Freeway Fleet Maintenance software. Freeway provides comprehensive and flexible import, integration and smart data capture processes specifically designed for the Transport Industry. Freeway assists with proper Asset Records, Cost Analysis, Maintenance Schedules, Workshop & Supplier Management, as well as Inventory.

Tyre maintenance is managed by means of Intasect Tyre Management software, developed specifically for this purpose. Intasect utilizes tablet technology and web based design to address the shortfalls of other “paper-based” tyre management systems. Most importantly, Intasect ensures a verifiable “cradle to grave” audit trail on all tyres and tyre related costs.
