What Would Excessive Idling Cost Your Business?
Posted on 07/06/2012 by AKilgore | 0 Comments
Summer is in full swing and you know what that means: your drivers are going to be tempted to leave their vehicles running with the A/C cranked up due to the unbearable heat. While it may be hot, for every thirty minutes your crew idles their vehicles, that’s one-tenth of a gallon of fuel wasted—per vehicle.
Multiply that times the number of vehicles in your fleet, a few times each day of the week and you can see how this cost can start to add up.
But with the NexTraq® Fleet Tracking solution and its Idle Report, you can monitor your fleet to see how long your vehicles having been idling and how much money has been spent. Not only that, you can decrease your carbon footprint by minimizing vehicle emissions through lowered idle times.
With NexTraq, you can save gas, money and the environment.
“With the Idle Report available in the NexTraq platform, we were able to limit how long our vehicles were idling, dramatically reducing our fuel costs and carbon footprint.”—Kevin Stone, Fleet Manager for Landscape Concepts Management
