Going green is an exhausting effort, requiring constant calculations and changes to reduce environmental impact without negatively affecting normal operations. Fortunately, GPS devices have come a long way and can help with far more than mapping routes. We live in an age where technology can take some of these stresses out of our hands and empowered fleet managers are implementing GPS devices to go green.
Smarter, Eco-friendly Workdays
No matter the size of the fleet, reducing unnecessary drive time saves time, gas, and your carbon footprint. When last minute changes or emergencies arise, fleet tracking allows managers to dispatch the nearest driver for faster, more effective resolution. Fleet tracking also allows better planning of a driver’s day with proximity as a guide.
Eliminate Paper Waste
To properly manage a fleet, there is a seemingly endless stream of logs and diagnostics for drivers, cargo, vehicles, and more. Implementing GPS devices will cut back on the paperwork for managers and drivers alike. (Good riddance!) Instead, the devices automatically create logs and notifications when a concerning diagnostic is read – keeping managers and drivers in the know, in real time, and making compliance with new logging requirements a breeze.
Cut Unnecessary Emissions
Idling and abrupt acceleration or braking are the biggest culprits to wasting gas and producing excess emissions. Thanks to GPS logging, these can be avoided as feedback is provided to fleet managers and drivers, allowing active awareness for better habits.
Better Maintenance, Better Mileage
Second to employees, vehicles are our most important asset, and both need proper attention and care to succeed! While your drivers can tell you what they need, many vehicles won’t tell you until it’s too late. With modern GPS devices, diagnostics are constantly run, keeping you informed and instantly aware of upcoming maintenance or surprises to keep your drivers safe and your vehicles running at maximum efficiency.
