School Bus Fleet Management
With maintenance, monitoring, and employee management, fleet vehicles are some of the most difficult assets to handle. Tracking maintenance schedules, vehicle locations, and life cycles takes time and resources that are difficult to establish and cause serious delays when not adhered to. Bus and fleet maintenance parts management systems for school ISDs and universities can help by keeping all supplies stored in one convenient location that uses a small footprint and is easy to access, allowing employees to complete repairs more efficiently. Additionally, these solutions are available on a Sourcewell (formerly NJPA) contract to help you save money and choose the best solution for your needs.

Fleet Management Parts Maintenance Storage
A Sourcewell contract allows school ISDs and universities to choose and collaborate with reputable vendors for the most valuable solution. With a Sourcewell contract, you won't need to go through each individual bid on your project; you'll be presented with the most beneficial solutions based on your exact needs to save you time and resources. A variety of solutions for fleet maintenance are available under a Sourcewell contract depending on your needs, such as vertical lift modules and carousels for storing tires, spare parts, heavy equipment, and more.
Vertical lift modules allow users to store parts and supplies on heavy-duty trays within an enclosed automated system. At the push of a button, the trays are automatically brought to an ergonomically-designed access opening. The system then directs the operator to the location on the tray with the exact part to be picked, which increases pick time and accuracy. With integrated inventory management software, the vertical lift modules can also track stored items and generate inventory reports. This system eliminates time spent walking and searching for parts, and also keeps items consolidated into one compact footprint.

Tire carousels also provide a unique solution for these difficult items. Using a similar design, users push a button to rotate the carousels to the desired level for easy tire retrieval. This also prevents tires from being stacked on top of each other, which can cause damage or injury due to the difficulty of retrieval. These and many more solutions available through a Sourcewell contract will help your school keep up with fleet maintenance to improve efficiency and avoid unexpected downtime.
