When it comes to fleet management, the E in ESG can carry a bit more weight. With transportation being one of the greatest contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions, environmental preservation is becoming increasingly important across the industry. The practice of ESG at a higher level helps fleets to stay accountable for their negative and positive impacts.
On October 11, Utilimarc released the results of their most recent survey covering 2022 Fleet Inflation rates. The survey was run in partnership with Xcel Energy, a utilities company based in Minnesota, and studied how recent inflation has affected the ways in which fleets operate and manage rising costs.
Whether by external mandate or internal initiative, more organizations than ever are monitoring their greenhouse gas emissions and general impact on the environment. Major companies like General Motors, FedEx, Delta and Shell have publicly committed to reaching carbon neutrality as soon as 2030, but the question is – is this goal achievable?
An emissions profile is a powerful tool for supporting fleet sustainability initiatives. The profile closely details a fleet or organization’s total carbon emissions within a certain period of time. This profile includes emissions from activities ranging from energy generation, fuel consumption and other daily operations.
Telematics is an essential management tool for many commercial and government fleets. Whether your chosen solution comes factory-embedded from the manufacturer or is added in after acquisition, telematics helps managers to monitor and understand their fleet assets.
Utilimarc is proud to announce their success as one of the top OEM telematics data integrators in the country. Working with some of the biggest OEMs in the industry, such as GM and Ford, Utilimarc analyzes thousands of on- and off-road fleet assets leveraging direct integrations with top telematics providers.
With the adoption of EVs, there can be a learning curve to the distinct technologies, metrics and KPIs involved. BI can help managers to track charge events, energy usage and MPGe in addition to their original ICEV metrics, all in one place.
BI helps fleets to futureproof by creating a reliable and repeatable management strategy that is flexible to change. With the fleet industry changing so rapidly today, this helps managers look toward long-term success, focusing on cost-reduction opportunities and sustainable resource management.
