Top 3 Ways to Make Your Heavy Duty Shop More Productive

November 4, 2019


A fleet manager has to manage trucks in a routine manner. However, sometimes, the influx of assignments can be a little overwhelming. Therefore, it’s essential to ensure that your team is working at its utmost efficiency. Here, we discuss the top three ways to increase productivity in a heavy-vehicle shop.

1. Structure Your Shop

You have to ensure that the environment in your shop is organized. If things are not in place, it can disrupt the productivity of your shop and force your managers and technicians to go back and forth.


You should try your best rearranging things logically. For instance, large daily usage tools like diagnostic computers, and jack stands should be placed where tech guys can easily use them without any problems. Moreover, make sure that your team puts items away after using them. Some other things that can help are reorganizing the storeroom and putting stockroom near the repair bays.



2. Use the Right Equipment

Needless to say, specialized tools and equipment are essential for any heavy-duty shop. However, some shops still use outdated, defective, or damaged equipment. It’s essential to keep these units upgraded or at the very least repaired or replaced. It’s true that upgraded equipment is expensive. However, it goes a long way in helping heavy-duty shops function as optimally as possible.

3. Make Sure There’s Work to Do

Many times, there is not enough work to go around, and your skilled technicians waste hours, not doing anything. Times like these can affect the productivity of your staff and cause them to become rusty. The owner is responsible for providing its team with work so that they remain busy and productive.

Although it’s a difficult job to remain productive throughout your schedule, staying organized, using the right equipment, and staying busy can help achieve the best out of your team.
