Time to first fix (Ttff)

Glossary / Tracking and telematics / Time to first fix (Ttff)

Time to first fix (Ttff) is a term that is commonly used in the trucking industry. It refers to the amount of time it takes for a vehicle to be repaired after it has experienced a breakdown or malfunction. Essentially, Ttff refers to the time that elapses between the moment a problem is detected and the moment the problem is fully resolved.

The importance of Ttff in the trucking industry cannot be overstated. This is because breakdowns and malfunctions can have a significant impact on a trucking company’s operations. In some cases, a breakdown may result in a shipment being delayed, which can have serious consequences for both the trucking company and their client. Additionally, trucking companies may incur additional costs in the form of
repairs and maintenance.

In order to
minimize the impact of breakdowns and malfunctions, many trucking companies implement strategies designed to reduce Ttff. This may involve regular maintenance checks on vehicles, as well as investment in advanced monitoring and diagnostic equipment. By identifying and resolving problems quickly, trucking companies can minimize the amount of time that their vehicles spend off the road and prevent delays and disruptions.
