Vehicle Fleet Management

Proven fleet transportation solutions are growing. Rethinking the concept of getting people and stuff from here to there is being refocused, digitized and retrained. Some of the most effective, proven strategies include:

  • Speed limiters for vans
  • Start-stop technology for urban vehicle
  • Sublight navigation for to help drivers in unfamiliar areas. On-board navigation can reduce mileage by 16% by reducing the mileage and frustration of getting lost!
  • Cruise control for motorway driving is safer and fuel consumption benefits.

Transportation and Fleet Management Strategies

Reimbursement levels (pay and reclaim) can be restructured to reward savings for both the driver and the company who implements the conservation technologies or training.

Training works -- but it's not easy! "We're now going to teach you to drive differently." That goes over really great! But everyone is learning new strategies to improve job performance and it can be done!

Van driving training has generated 16% savings. Other strategies have proven to generate 10% savings.

The fascinating vision however, is that immediately after training the savings are 30%! If it's achievable, how do we get people to retain that level of conservation? Trainers have a worthy goal to find ways to balance the cost of training with that 30% conservation goal.

Reduced business mileage has huge potential... if a company reduces annual mileage 1,000 miles per car -- that's maybe 3 business trips.

Savings from Vehicle Fleet Management

  • Fuel costs-- that's obvious.
  • Whole life costs -- maintenance and tires, etc.
  • But removing the NEED for business travel -- the driver! that's where the greatest savings can be found!

    Salaries for driving 1,000 miles = 25 hours! Create ways to reduce the need to travel. Maybe those 1,000 miles don't need take place at all or could be conducted using video conferencing.
