We know that our GPS to GO fleet tracking customers in Canada and the United States care about saving green – as in money – but we also know that many of you care about reducing your fleet’s impact on the environment. And GPS to GO’s Geotab is one of the most cost-effective ways out there to reduce that impact.
By tracking both the movement and behaviour of your drivers and gaining the ability to deploy your fleet more efficiently, it all adds up to less emissions and lower fuel costs. Let’s take a look at how that is:
Optimization of routes
Your drivers won’t be “taking the scenic route” anymore. With precise route management, that means a reduction in the amount of fuel used, and ultimately, emissions produced by your fleet. As well, the system provides intelligent data for dispatchers to know where multiple trucks are at, and send the closest one to the job or pickup /drop-off site.
Reduction in time spent idling
We know that many municipalities have enacted bylaws in recent years limiting the amount of time that drivers are allowed to spend idling. That’s because it is known as one of the more harmful environmental acts caused by our vehicles. Virtually across the board, businesses who use fleet management tracking systems report idle time reductions, like this non-profit organization that after one year, reported a 31% reduction in its fleet’s time spent idling.
Reduction in aggressive driving, heavy acceleration, and speeding
All of these can lead to a great deal of unnecessary fuel consumption. Knowing that they’re being held accountable for their driving, your fleet is likely to drive even more responsibly. Some organizations have used the fleet tracking solution provided by Geotab systems to enact strict speeding policies in the name of employee safety, but such policies can function doubly as a way to ensure good fuel management.
Regardless of your personal level concern for the environment as an employer, reducing fuel costs through use of a GPS fleet tracking solution is both good for the environment, and for your businesses’ bottom line. Now that’s something we can all agree on!
