GPS trackers: Reducing carbon footprints
Have you noticed a shift in the way people think about the planet we live on? Within the last handful of years awareness about protecting our environment has skyrocketed. There are eco-friendly products and services being offered around every corner in lieu of the old ways of doing things which caused a lot of toxins to enter the air. Even corporate companies are taking on the challenge to become more eco-friendly. You could be the next company to join the movement! In part one of this series, we’ll provide 2 ways that you can become an eco-friendly fleet using GPS trackers.
1.) Drive Less: You may be wondering how in the world are you expected to drive less when you’re and fleet company and that’s just what you do! Where there are GPS trackers, there is a way. GPS trackers allow for optimal route planning to help you accomplish this goal. By clicking into the dispatch and route planning feature, management or the dispatching team can create the shortest pre-planned routes to driver destinations and cut down on unnecessary mileage.
2.) Idle Less: Waiting in long lines at a stop-light may be unavoidable, but the practice of keeping the vehicle running while you pop into a gas station or enter a customer’s location can be stopped. Idling sends pollution into the air and it’s not good for the engine either. GPS trackers store idling data that can be viewed in reports so that you can determine if the idling time is reasonable or if a driver needs to be coached.
Did you know that carbon dioxide releases from vehicles, especially when they operate inefficiently? GPS trackers take the guesswork out of knowing that you’re doing your part for the environment. If you’re looking to join the ranks of other establishments making the move towards eco-friendly operational standards, then GPS trackers may be your best bet.
