GPS fleet tracking is about so much more than getting directions. It offers many benefits for the planet businesses today are seeking to embrace. With increasing consumer concerns over global warming and carbon footprints, it makes sense for businesses to consider the following, planet-friendly benefits from GPS tracking as well.

Here are just a few of the environmental benefits of GPS fleet tracking:

Reduces Fossil Fuel Consumption

Fossil fuels are not only limited resources that will, one day, run out. The refining process required to transform them into usable fuel for vehicles creates harmful emissions that are highly destructive.

GPS routing allows you to create more fuel-efficient routes for your vehicles to take to reach their destination. This reduces the miles they travel and the amount of time they spend on the road.

What is the Alive at 25 Program?

The Alive at 25 program is a driver safety program that focuses on teaching safe driving skills to drivers between the ages of 15 and 24. The purpose is to instill the importance of defensive driving and raising awareness of poor decisions behind the wheel.

The National Safety Council created this program to address the very serious problem of teen driving and the risks teen drivers face. The program seeks to create positive changes in teen driver behaviors by focusing on four core issues:
