A Fresh Take on Improving Fleet Efficiency

fleet-efficiency

Is it possible to increase driver safety, productivity and fleet efficiency at the same time? How is it done?

Colin Sutherland, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Geotab, weighed in on that question in an interview for the PwC Canada Vision to Reality Awards, which celebrate innovation in the tech industry. Using telematics technology like Geotab’s, Sutherland says, can help fleets measure and improve vehicle and driver safety, reduce fuel costs, optimize fuel usage, and streamline the work of fleet managers — who already have their hands full with day to day operations.

With the current unfavourable economic climate in South Africa and recent fuel price increase leaving consumers panicked, businesses will have to be more vigilant than ever in saving fuel costs.

Technology and big data is pivotal in optimising the efficiency of business operations whilst enabling them to remain economically competitive. Data and insight into operations greatly assists in reducing kilometres travelled and the corresponding fuel usage. Fuel usage has become an integral feature that our customers are not only interested in, but rely on. Fuel remains one of the largest expenses for fleets.

One measurable method that helps drive fast fuel savings is to implement a GPS fleet management solution, also known as telematics. This post discusses some strategies for increasing fuel efficiency and will review fuel tracking basics in MyGeotab.
