Escalating fuel costs are one of the biggest challenges facing any business today.
Escalating fuel costs are one of the biggest challenges facing any business today. Rather than resorting to scaling down its work force or even its fleet, the best option is to focus on lowering fuel costs by cutting operating expenses tied to fuel consumption.
Motrak, the telematics division of Motiva Group formed in 2001, have developed a Fleet Monitoring system which aims to put Fleet Managers back in control of their fleet, and to cut fuel costs.The MV3 tracker offers the very best in fleet monitoring and cost saving in one simple to use web application.
The system produces real-time reports assisting Fleet Managers in reducing the fuel costs that arise due to the following:
Aggressive Driving which can dramatically reduce lower a vehicle's miles per gallon. Motrak monitors acceleration and braking, allowing you to identify area of misuse.
Carbon Reduction must be high on the agenda of any Fleet Manager concerned with CO2 emissions. Vehicle usage means fuel being consumed which, in turn, means CO2.Its vital that drivers understand the environmental impact of using excessive fuel - the less fuel consumed, the lower the emissions.
Unnecessary Speeding which apart from being dangerous, can be one of the biggest costs to any fleet. Ensure speed limits are adhered too can same money and lives. A vehicle travelling at 80mph uses on average 25% more fuel than a vehicle at 70mph
Engine Idling is effectively zero miles per gallon, and can dramatically increases wear and tear on a vehicle.
Efficient Route Planning can identify drivers who repeatedly diverge from pre-planned routes; typically driving longer distances and therefore using excessive fuel.
The MV3 traker monitors all of the above along with many other features which will help any company combat unnecessary fuel usage and is available from as little as 40 pence per day.
Can any Fleet manger afford to sit on the fence and deliberate while cost savings can be made?
