How GPS Trackers Help You Reduce Pollution: Part 2

GPS trackers: Decreasing harmful emissions

In part one of this series we talked about how GPS trackers can help you reduce pollution by also helping your fleets to control their speeding. As most everyone is aware of these days, air pollution is by the far one of the most harmful forms of pollution to the world. Aside from speeding being a problem this fall, your fleet drivers might be tempted to leave their trucks idling to “warm up.” Idling is an action that takes a harsh toll on engines, but it is also horrible for the environment. If you’re not worried about speeding, perhaps you’re the type of manager that wants to be cut down on idling and GPS trackers can help you accomplish this objective while also helping you to reduce pollution.

Idling: Just like speeding, idling has negative affects on the atmosphere. Idling causes engines to operate inefficiently spewing out soot from the tailpipes. These vehicle emissions are hazardous and produced more by a degraded engine that got that way from idling. Contrary to popular belief, it’s actually been shown through studies that driving vehicles actually warms the engine up faster than letting the engine run. GPS trackers can help by automatically identifying when excessive idling takes place. Just like with the speeding reports, an idling report can be generated from the GPS trackers.

As a fleet manager you may have thought about what you can do to be more “green’ and promote a positive image of your company. The truth is that you don’t have to be a big environmentalist to run a “green” fleet. GPS trackers make it easy for small, medium or large fleet businesses to do their part in helping the environment. Using GPS trackers you can start making simple changes like reducing speed and idling. In this way GPS trackers can help you and your fleets reduce pollution.
