Robert Gerace, CEO of CRC said recently, "With our new tools that will come on line in early 2012, we believe we can help our clients to save a great deal of driving. With the help of our clients, we think we can save at least five million gallons of gasoline in 2012 alone."

With over 130,000 active users of the VelociTRACKER™ system, anything that moves that force for good can be an extremely powerful benefit. Most of those 130,000 spend their entire work year driving between stores to perform merchandising related tasks within the stores. A smaller percentage also files between locations and then drives to stores in the area of the destination airport.

Over the years, CRC has refined its tools to make scheduling more efficient, but for the last year CRC has been working on technology to help clients save up to 25% in terms of mileage and drive time. In 2012, CRC will unveil the technology and both train and encourage all users to take advantage of the new features.

Gerace believes that if the technology is only used and adopted by enough users to result in only one gallon of gasoline being saved per person, per week on average, the gasoline savings will easily exceed 5,000,000 gallons of gas per week. Gerace is excited about this for at least several reasons:

  •     At $3.50 per gallon, this amounts to $17.5 million in savings to CRC clients
  •     The above amounts to a huge reduction in pollution
  •     And also amounts to a huge reduction in dependence on foreign oil

Additionally, reducing that much driving will improve the quality of service (as more stores can be serviced with less drive time), as well as the quality of upwards of 130,000 people’s lives.

Finally, more efficient utilization of resources means fewer trips necessary by air, also contributing to fuel savings.
