SAVING FUEL WITH VEHICLE TRACKING
Without a doubt, not everyone driving out on the road is efficient. There are the Fast & Furious fans whose cars gulp down fuel and old grandpas who believe that driving slower will save fuel. This might be acceptable to the common folk but if you are the manager of a large fleet of vehicles this behaviour could ruin you with spiralling of fuel costs.
FUEL & TRACKING
Tools are available to measure how fuel consumption. When tracking your vehicles, sensors can be installed to detect fuel levels over time. By measuring these fuel levels, even if done with little accuracy, one can start understanding on whether current fuel consumption is acceptable or not.
SAVING FUEL USING TRACKING SYSTEMS
Combining fuel information with vehicle tracking information gives you an idea of the driver’s behaviour. When you analyse the information as regards to speed and fuel consumption patterns, you can start to get a feel (and maybe more than that) of the driver’s attitude on the wheel. Using this information you can help the driver to drive in a way that helps save fuel costs.
SAVING FUEL THROUGH ROUTING EFFICIENCIES
Using tracking information over time unveils unhealthy routes. Using the information over a period of time will give you routes which drivers are using to make their deliveries. Opting for different routes or times can help the drivers to avoid traffic areas and thus save on their fuel consumption.
SAVING FUEL THROUGH OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCIES
By streamlining operation, one can save costs through a fewer number of journeys. By organizing the way your fleet operates, you can organise your deliveries in a way which would lead to making fewer trips to a particular destinations. Also one can choose which routes to travel from beforehand allowing one to travel during times where there is little traffic.
Vehicle tracking gives you both behavioural and geographic information that when analysed and understood can help a company to reduce its operational and fuel costs. The technology can help in reducing fuel costs but it is by using such technologies effectively that one can leverage more savings.
