GPS tracker: Saving your cash
While the price for fuel is lower than it has been in the past few years, it’s still one of the largest fleet business expenses. The majority of fleet vehicles are still gas guzzlers. Arguably, GPS trackers provide many cash saving opportunities and cutting down on fuel expenses is one of the best. Thousands of dollars can be saved in as little as one month! Those kind of savings can be enough to rationalize the initial investment of GPS trackers. Here are two ways that you can start decreasing your fleet fuel expenses with GPS trackers.
Route Planning: Helping your drivers save time by providing them with the ability to follow pre-planned, efficient routes. Dispatchers can easily see exact locations of drivers and plan the best, quickest, safest route accordingly. The real benefit comes from having improved routing which lends to shorter travel distances, therefore; reducing fuel costs.
Less Idling: Some argue that it takes too much time to stop and restart an engine if they’re just “running inside for a minute”. The truth is, that allowing the engine to run wastes more money, because leaving the vehicle running uses more fuel. Engines that constantly run causes more than just wasted fuel, it can damage other parts of the vehicle’s engine. With GPS trackers, managers will be able to pinpoint which drivers have a habit of idling and can eliminate the problem to save cash.
GPS trackers have many great uses, but being able to make vehicles more fuel efficient is one of the most superior features. Besides, who doesn’t love saving cash? If your fleet business struggles with high fuel expenses, you might just consider implementing GPS trackers for your vehicles. The day you get the system up and running is the day you’ll be on your way to savings!
