The savings are through the roof in various areas of the business, but the cost from a reduction in fuel alone is enough to justify the addition of using a GPS tracker.
GPS tracking gives a company access to knowing more detailed information about the fleet. Many items have been wasting money for years, so this new-found knowledge is sure to be an eye opener.
The first way to save money on fuel is that with GPS tracking is knowing when a vehicle is idling for an extended, unnecessary period of time. Rumor has it that stopping and restarting an engine wastes too much fuel, so leaving the vehicle running is more cost effective. This is only a rumor, and in fact is quite wasteful. With a GPS tracker, There are reports to show the amount of time a vehicle is running, yet staying in one place. If that a driver has a habit of idling for more than a few hours a day, this matter should be brought to his or her attention.
Another cost saving feature of using a GPS tracker is that drivers are not as likely to waste valuable time lost, or taking a time consuming route down the road. With GPS tracking, dispatchers have the ability to see the exact location of the drivers as well as the best, most direct route to his or her location. If in event a driver was lost, dispatchers can quickly help them find their way back to the route. The faster the drivers reach their locations, the faster the job is done, and the more time they have available for other jobs. This makes travel time shorter, which again, reduces fuel costs.
These two areas are only a few ways to cut costs using GPS tracking. There are even more unique ways that a company will save money and boost that earning potential.
