We’ve been hearing buzz about autonomous cars for almost a century now, with the dreams of a self-driving car for everyday use showing up in fictional accounts of the future in the 1930’s. As we saw the promises of other once far-fetched inventions come to fruition, we’ve continued to wait for the reality of an autonomous vehicle. Each year it seems that we are given more exciting updates about the encroaching arrival of truly autonomous vehicles on our streets, but so far test vehicles have yet to give way to a functioning consumer product.
With winter approaching faster than we may like it is time for business owners to think about the impact winter may have on their fleet operations. We at Sokolis Group help our fleet companies get ready for the winter months by assisting them in ordering fuel additive to keep their diesel fuel from gelling and their fleet drivers safe on the road. Other business owners have found different ways to keep their employees safe during the winter months, such as allowing them to telecommute. Instead of employees having to battle with the snow, sleet, and ice they can work from home and stay out of harms way.
