Reduce Engine Idling
Create Green Routes
Decrease Fuel Cost
GPS technology is improving the way companies manage their annual fuel expenses.
Using a GPS tracking solution to reduce fleet fuel costs is simple, businesses can monitor engine idling and vehicle speed. Vehicles can be routed and stops added on the fly, in or out-of-state and in real-time. By using this information to change driving behaviors, vehicle monitoring helps reduce fuel costs.
hen drivers let their engine idle during the day they are getting 0 mpg.
The data retrieved through GPS tracking and reporting has shown that, depending on engine size and air conditioner use, one hour of engine idling can burn one half-gallon of fuel.
If you have a fleet of just four drivers that idle one hour per day each, your fleet would waste 2 gallons of gas per day. This can add up on a monthly basis.*
Statistically, for each 5 mph over 60 mph that is driven, vehicle fuel efficiency is reduced by at least 5% to 33%. Improving dispatching and routing, while using speeding alerts and reports will help reduce instances of speeding, thus, reducing fuel costs.*
Dispatchers can reduce the environmental impact of their fleet using a GPS fleet tracking system. By dispatching the closest vehicles to a call location, companies are able to route drivers using greener routes. Using a GPS solution they can even add stops to existing routes on the fly to optimize fuel consumption and minimize the impact on the environment.
