Ways to Reduce Fleet Cost and Save on Energy
Installing a Brightsync engine block heater controller is just one way in which you can save on energy costs for your vehicle fleet. There are a number of ways you can save on energy and save yourself or your company money. As providers of advanced, cost-saving block heater solutions, Brightsync can also offer some additional advice for easy ways to bring your fleet management and usage costs down.
Cut Down on Mileage
This can be difficult to control. Depending on the size of the fleet, types of vehicles, and the service being provided, it can be difficult to accurately monitor whether all of the mileage covered is strictly necessary for business purposes.
Using GPS and map applications is easier than ever, too, and can often go a long way to plan financially optimized routes and check in on traffic reports. While none of these are a guarantee, it can contribute to an overall reduction of cost over time.
Reduce the Number of Vehicles
Obviously, there are a lot of factors involved in whether or not you should reduce cost by reducing the number of vehicles. Determining whether your fleet can afford to eliminate a certain number of vehicles is the complicated part, as it will be important to balance your budget.
Getting rid of vehicles might save on maintenance or repair costs, but it could also increase the workload on staff, not to mention the wear on existing vehicles. You may also hurt your efforts to save on energy, as the remaining vehicles will likely see an increase in use.
Reducing Crash Incidents and Payouts
Reducing crashes and collisions is something that any fleet owner should always keep in mind. No one wants to be involved in a collision, but accidents happen. When it comes to operating a fleet, the chances are often increased by the sheer numbers, not to mention the type of vehicles you may manage.
Paying out for accidents is costly, and paying for additional training or regular retraining of drivers and staff is more than worth the investment. Making sure that your fleet staff is trained, alert, and focused are keys to reducing crashes or collisions. While this may not help you save on energy, it may save money, and will definitely give you peace of mind.
