fleet fuel management Fleet Fuel Management

With volatile and unpredictable fuel prices, fuel is one of the largest expenses transportation companies face today. So, it’s vital to efficiently manage fuel consumption with proper fleet fuel management.

A variety of factors, including weather, aerodynamics, vehicle type, tire resistance and maintenance practices can affect fuel consumption, but there are several others — that with the right technology and fleet fuel management — you can easily control:

  • Excessive idling
  • Excessive over-revving
  • Hard braking
  • Improper shifting
  • Speeding
  • Routing and navigation

Did You Know?

  • Efficient drivers can get approximately 30% better mileage per gallon than their least efficient colleagues
  • The average long-haul truck uses over US$3,700 of fuel per year idling
  • Fuel economy decreases by half a mile per gallon for every five miles per hour (MPH) in excess of 55 MPH
