Fleet monitoring system helps waste management companiestest go greener

FleetMind Solutions : 19 November, 2009  (New Product)
Monitoring driver behaviour, fuel consumption and emissions is helping "less than truckload" transport companies reduce costs and improve their environmental impact
FleetMind Solutions, a provider of fleet management solutions, has announced its solution to help waste, recycling and less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation firms "green" their fleets by reducing fuel consumption, mileage and emissions, and ensuring more efficient driver behaviour.

"Green fleets are not only more responsible fleets, but more profitable ones as well," said Martin Demers, CEO of FleetMind. "If your fleet is not managed effectively, you will generate unnecessary emissions and excess costs that negatively impact your bottom line. Current economic conditions and a growing concern for the environment are providing the impetus for more and more fleet managers to implement green policies and solutions. It is FleetMind's mission to help make leaner and greener fleets a reality."

FleetMind's green fleet solution tackles core fleet issues that impact the environment - fuel consumption, mileage and driver behaviour - and provides tools to address these as follows:

Improve fuel consumption management - Fuel costs account for a major portion of total fleet operating costs which makes managing fuel consumption a critical part of green fleet management. FleetMind helps reduce the amount of fuel burned by the engine by using alarms to monitor and reduce idling, identify aggressive driving patterns, identify vehicle maintenance problems and collect ECM codes so that engines can be repaired before problems escalate.

Reduce overall mileage and emissions - FleetMind's onboard Driver Direction functionality optimises each truck's routes to reduce time spent on the road and the number of engine hours per day. Driver Direction also provides a graphical view of route stops to the driver, and will automatically re-calculate the route when a driver selects an out-of-sequence manual stop. This ensures that each route is optimised for time and distance to reduce overall mileage and emissions.

Monitor and educate drivers - Driver behaviour is fundamental to ensuring high levels of fleet efficiency. FleetMind's real-time monitoring of driver behaviour and driving patterns allows fleet managers to influence and educate drivers on more fuel and emissions-friendly driving approaches. FleetMind's FleetMap lets managers select from a number of layers which determine the level of detail and plot the vehicle's position according to reported events. Using FleetMap, managers can further reconstruct the route taken by a driver on any given day, view alarm criteria such as exceeding specified speed limits, and identify drivers that are deviating from assigned routes or making unscheduled side trips.
