Updated: Aug 17, 2018
Thanks to remote diagnostics and wireless GPS tracking, today’s fleet telematic tools keep you in-the-know and in-control of your fuel spending. Here’s how:
Monitoring Driving Behavior
Traxroot Logic's Driver behavior and Score cards helps in increasing operational efficiency. Set your own appropriate violation thresholds to determine what driving behavior is considered to be harsh and generate driver score cards. Identify bad drivers and encourage them to attend driver training programs. Better driving means reduced speeding and harsh acceleration/ braking which results in better mileage.
According to Environmental Defence Fund, an idling car uses between 1/5 to 7/10 of a gallon of fuel every hour, and an idling diesel truck burns approximately one gallon of fuel an hour. Traxroot fleet management software gives you detailed reports on how long was the vehicle on idling, its location and driver name.
The U.S. Department of Energy reports that aggressive driving (speeding, rapid acceleration and breaking) can lower your gas mileage by roughly 15% to 30% at highway speeds and 10% to 40% in stop-and-go traffic. Plus, speeding impacts a vehicle’s following distance and likelihood of hard breaking, another fuel-zapping behavior. Our vehicle tracking software can you insight on the complete speeding history of your fleet along with time, location and speed duration. Traxroot can send you instant alerts via email, push notification and SMS when the vehicle goes above a set speed for a set duration.
Improvised Routing and DispatchingTraxroot Dispatch™ automatically assigns work orders/ manages deliveries for Traxroot Field™ agents and drivers. Field service organizations and delivery companies require automated dispatch and scheduling software that allows them to manage the growing number of jobs, technicians and customers in-order to streamline the entire process from receiving the order to delivery. By using advanced routing software specially for companies which provide last mile delivery service, the amount of time spent on the road and the gas spend reduces drastically.
