Reducing Fuel Costs without Purchasing Fuel-Efficient Vehicles
Posted on 02/22/2013 by Chelsea Holmes | 0 Comments
In a GreenRoad’s “Fleet Leader 2013 Outlook” survey, 80 percent of fleet managers cited that reducing fleet fuel expenses will be one of the most significant challenges in 2013. Not only that, nearly 62 percent plan on purchasing more fuel-efficient vehicles.
But purchasing more fuel-efficient vehicles can get expensive, whether you have a fleet of 3 or 500. There is, however, an alternative solution that can help reduce fleet fuel expenses, without having to purchase new vehicles—GPS fleet tracking.
How? Here are three GPS fleet tracking tools that can help reduce your fleet fuel costs:
1. Reporting & Alerts Capabilities
With reporting and alerts capabilities, you can create speed alerts or run an idle report to monitor your employees driving habits and ensure that fuel isn’t being wasted.
2. Efficient Routing Tool
With an efficient routing tool, you can provide the most accurate routes and help your drivers avoid getting lost or stuck in traffic, helping conserve fuel while getting your drivers to their destination on time.
3. Fuel Card Integration
Fuel card integration allows you to see exactly when and where your employees purchased fuel, and how much fuel was purchased. With fuel card integration you can track fuel transactions, eliminate abusive purchases, simplify IFTA reporting and more.
