Reduce Emissions with Telematics
May 12, 2021
Adopting electric or hybrid vehicles is not the only way to reduce emissions. Telematics can help fleet managers reduce greenhouse gas emissions by tackling 3 key areas:
1. Effective Fuel Management
This is crucial to reducing fuel consumption and, in turn, emissions. Summit Telematics fuel efficiency reports use fuel consumption data from the engine.
Make comparisons between drivers or vehicles in order to target improvement areas.
Use side-by-side fuel data and in-vehicle driver feedback to monitor driving behavior that is linked to increased fuel costs, such as speeding, idling, jack-rabbit starts.
2. Prioritization of Vehicles in Need of Maintenance
Unattended vehicle faults can deteriorate and potentially affect other components and systems on the vehicle, including fuel systems. They also increase downtime and the cost of repairs.
Detect engine issues early
Prevent vehicle wear and tear
Manage preventative maintenance
3. Route Planning and Optimization
Effective route planning reduces fuel consumption because less time is spent idling and fewer kilometres are driven.
Route planning reporting
Dispatch nearest vehicle
Traffic heat map software add-in
