Fleetmatics offers fuel-saving advice

Fleetmatics has released a free online e-book entitled ‘How Fleet Management Systems can help save you fuel’.

The e-book highlights the most common fuel wasters and explains how, by using the Fleetmatics tracking system, businesses can become greener and save money.

The fuel saving advice e-book, which contains statistics from the AA and the Energy Savings Trust, reveals how speeding, hard braking, excessive idling and other widespread negative driving habits are responsible for huge fuel wastages and costs that often go unnoticed by fleet managers.

“Reports have shown that poor driving, excessive idling of vehicle’s engines and inefficient routing and dispatch are responsible for a huge amount of wasted fuel,” says chief technology officer at Fleetmatics, Peter Mitchell.

“With fuel costs remaining high and the need to cut on CO2 emissions, it is in the interest of all businesses to keep fuel use as low as possible.

“Our GPS vehicle tracking system helps businesses achieve this important goal; this new e-book demonstrates that, by monitoring and managing your fleet more effectively, it is possible to save money on fuel, whilst reducing wear and tear costs on vehicles, curbing speeding fines and improving health and safety.”
