SIX STEPS TO A GREENER FLEET
The following steps help you make your business greener with wireless fleet management:
1. REDUCE IDLE TIME
Excessive waste of fuel resulting from idling is one of the factors that exert a harmful impact on the environment. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation the amount of fuel burnt by idling medium-duty trucks reaches 2.5 billion gallons per year, which makes up 6.7% of the total fuel they consume. A GPS tracking system allows you to set certain limits of idling and identify drivers who constantly violate the company's policy.
2. IMPROVE VEHICLE MAINTENANCE
Managing the health your fleet will both extend the life of the individual vehicles and will reduce their carbon footprint. A poorly maintained engine may trigger more harmful emissions. Additionally, small technical problems left unfixed can cost much more in the long run. To elevate that, our GPS tracking systems offers a wide range of diagnostic trouble code (DTC) alerts designed to inform about any vehicle problems so that you or your drivers could take care of the fleet timely. Plus regular maintenance can now be automated through the use of TSC's Lifecycle Management Alerts. Custom alerts can be defined and assigned to individual vehicles based on Mileage, Engine Hours or by the calendar.
3. REDUCE SPEEDING
High speed implies more fuel consumption, which in turn increases emissions levels. To lower speeding in several ways use TSC's reporting options. You will automatically receive an alert every time your drivers exceed a particular speed limit. This will enable you to prevent accidents, coach your employees on safer driving habits and as an additional advantage – protect the environment.
4. REDUCE UNAUTHORIZED VEHICLE USAGE
Unnecessary use of company vehicles leads to increased mileage and wear and tear of engines resulting in more greenhouse emissions and higher fuel costs. Armed with a GPS tracking system you will constantly see where your vehicles are, which will help eliminate odd-hours driving and unauthorized use thus reducing waste of gas and general impact on the environment.
5. OPTIMIZE ROUTING
Tailor your routing by analyzing vehicle location data. Opt for shorter routes to speed up your service and increase revenues. Provide your dispatchers with the data to find optimal itineraries and improve general productivity. Minimizing vehicle usage reduces mileage, lowers emissions, and helps your fleet become more efficient.
6. CONTINUOUSLY MONITOR EMISSIONS
With TSC you will constantly receive updates concerning the work of your engine, fuel burnt, miles driven and the level of emissions. Analyzing this data you will always be aware if everything in the vehicle is in order and if your fleet operates in an environmentally friendly way. In the long run you will considerably save on repairs and trips to inspection facilities.
