It might surprise you that encouraging your drivers to make some simple changes to their driving habits can lead to increased savings for your business. The FleetSharp solution gives you ways to save by:
The U.S. Department of Energy publishes that quick acceleration and heavy braking can reduce fuel economy by up to 33 percent on the highway and 5 percent around town. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) notes that you can assume that each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph can impact your fuel usage by as much as 23%. Put those numbers together, and the cost can really add up. FleetSharp’s tracking solution allows you to monitor these activities and address drivers with issues.
Beyond fuel savings, reducing aggressive driving habits can significantly reduce the risk of vehicle accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the average vehicle crash costs an employer $16,500. When that on-the-job crash results in an injury, the cost to the employer is $74,000. The real tragedy is that these crashes are largely preventable. The FleetSharp solution gives you easy-to-use tools that help you reduce aggressive driving habits and reduce speeding.
Finally, FleetSharp’s driver safety tools help you reduce wear and tear on your vehicles thereby reducing maintenance expenses.
