Happy 49th Earth Day! Utilize GPS Tracking to Make Your Fleet Greener

19 Apr 2018

Earth Day is an annual event that celebrates our planet and seeks to educate people about simple changes they can make to be better caretakers of the Earth. The event takes place each year on April 22 and 2018 is the 49th Earth Day celebration.

The goal of Earth Day is not only to educate people about the need for change in hopes of changing attitudes, but also to change behaviors. Your fleet can participate as well by incorporating GPS fleet tracking into your business to effect the following changes.

Reduce Paper Waste

Paper waste is a bigger problem than the average person believes. According to The World Counts, more than 30 million acres of forests are destroyed each year with 40 percent of the timber cut going to the production of paper. More disturbing though, is that nearly 50 percent of business waste is related to paper.

GPS fleet tracking can help you eliminate much of the paper waste related to operating your fleet. Things like log sheets and paper invoices can become things of the past with the use of emailed invoices and digital logs. Helping your business operate leaner and greener from the start.

Eliminate Unnecessary Idling

According to Trucks.com, trucks are responsible for approximately 20 percent of greenhouse gas emissions within the U.S. transportation sector. Idling is an unnecessary contributing factor for many of those emissions. Changing policies alone do little to reduce emissions in your fleet if you are unable to enforce those policy changes.

GPS fleet tracking, however, can be used to monitor idling in vehicles to ensure your drivers are following your directives related to idling trucks. This alone will go a long way toward helping you do your part to make your fleet a little greener for Earth Day 2018.

Generate Fewer Emissions

Finally, you can use GPS fleet tracking to plan more fuel-efficient routes. This will help drivers complete their routes faster, meaning less time on the roads. It also means that you will consume less fuel in the operation of your fleet.

Not only does it save your business money, but it helps the planet in the process. GPS fleet tracking also helps by improving maintenance for your vehicles and, as mentioned above, reducing idling.

Earth Day happens one day out of each year. However, your fleet can honor the spirit of Earth Day every day of the year by incorporating these planet-friendly tactics with your GPS fleet tracking system.
