Reduce Vehicle Speeds
According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), aggressive driving (speeding, rapid acceleration and braking) wastes gas.
In fact, these driving habits can lower your gas mileage by 33% at highway speeds, and by 5% around town. Sensible driving is also safer for you and others, so you might just save more than gas money.
GPS tracking systems help you gain significant control over your fleet vehicles by automatically sending out alerts for aggressive driving behavior like speeding, rapid acceleration and braking. Take control of your fleet and reduce fuel savings by up to 33%.
Decreasing Idle Times
The State of Indiana performed extensive research on diesel idle times. According to IN.gov, “…an hour of idle time consumes about one gallon of fuel.”
The study also confirmed that long idle times cause considerably more engine wear and damage than normal driving, which translate directly to increased maintenance costs.
Our customer, Brazos Logistics, was alerted to a driver who napped while idling every hour on a 6 hour trip. The idling time cost over $20 in fuel per day, a $500 alternator failure, and missed shipment deadlines. GPS vehicle tracking systems would have prevented this misuse of company resources.
Rhino Fleet Tracking systems send automatic alerts to you when excessive idling occurs, and these alerts can be customized to any schedule you desire.
Rhino Fleet Tracking locates every vehicle in the fleet with a great degree of precision, so your dispatchers can manage routing with more efficiency.
This will ensure that vehicles take the most direct route to their intended location, saving both time and fuel.
Another customer, AA Limousine, saves over $1300/year per vehicle using Rhino Fleet Tracking to perfect routing. With 20 vehicles, that totals over $26,000/year in savings.
Auto Rescue utilizes Rhino Fleet Tracking to locate the closest service vehicle to stranded customers. Over 750 service vehicles are tracked, helping them offer the fastest service in the business.
More effective dispatching, shorter routes, and less waste equals significant fuel savings. And all thanks to a GPS vehicle tracking system.
