GPS trackers: Reducing carbon footprints
Things are a lot different now than they were a few years ago in regards to our awareness about keeping the planet functioning properly. More effort has been made by several big businesses to create lines of eco-friendly products and to provide services with as little toxicity as possible. In part one, we discussed how corporate companies are taking on the challenge to become more eco-friendly and how you could, too! In part two of this series, we’ll provide 2 more ways that you can become an eco-friendly fleet using GPS trackers.
1.) Speed Less: It may not be as easy as asking everyone to obey the traffic laws. If it were, wouldn’t they be doing so already? The truth is that speeding consumes fuel faster, causing your drivers to fill up more often and use up precious resources. Not only is it terrible for the environment when chemical waste enters the airway, but it’s harsh on the vehicles, as well. With GPS trackers, reducing speeding is as simple as monitoring with alerts and reports that show these driver behaviors.
2.) Repair Less: By idling less, driving less, and speeding less your drivers will be aiding in your attempt to have fewer vehicle maintenance repairs. Of course, you cannot stop vehicle maintenance all together. In fact, keeping up with routine maintenance is better than not doing it all. Maintaining the appropriate amount air in the tires, performing regular oil changes, and giving your company vehicles a tune-up here and there can actually prevent harmful chemicals, from damaged parts, from entering the air. It will also improve gas mileage.
If your goal is to become an eco-friendly fleet, you can start reducing your carbon footprints with the implementation of GPS trackers. With these devices it’s simple to meet all of the goals of driving less, idling less, speeding less, and having to repair less.
