Managing an electric vehicle fleet can be a new challenge – especially for those experienced with managing traditional vehicle fleets. The needs are different. However, as more companies seek new ways to “go green” electric vehicles are a practical decision in this endeavor. Not only can they save big on fuel costs, but they can also net tax breaks for businesses that take the plunge.

Many businesses, mistakenly, believe that they no longer need GPS tracking benefits after making the switch to electric vehicles. However, nothing could be further from the truth. These are just a few great ways GPS fleet tracking can help you manage your electric vehicles more efficiently than ever.

Manage Charging Routes for Long-Distance Trips

Electric vehicles get phenomenal mileage in the city with all its stops and starts. Couple that with the fact that many cities have abundant charging stations for electric vehicles and it’s a real win for drivers. However, when fleets operate over long distances, it becomes important to manage trips according to access to charging stations along the way. GPS fleet tracking can help you identify locations for charging stations and keep a constant watch on the vehicle’s current state-of-charge while driving. This means mishaps are far less likely to occur.

Tighter service windows mean you can work more appointments and service calls into your day. More than that, they mean you can have wonderfully satisfied customers who aren’t spending endless hours waiting on your arrival. It’s a total win for your business. One that can be enhanced with GPS fleet tracking.

These are just a few ways GPS tracking can help your organization honor tighter service windows.

Keeps Your Drivers on Track

Employees running personal errands on company time, making stops at convenience stores, or taking longer than allowed lunch breaks has traditionally been a problem for service-oriented businesses. One that costs them more than a few unsatisfied customers, endless additional fuel costs, and surprisingly costly additional labor hours. GPS tracking allows you to monitor driver locations at all times and will even report if drivers go ‘off route’ during the workday.
