Fleet efficiency management provider GreenRoad has added new features to its offering aimed at reducing idling-related fuel waste, halting speeding violations and improving data insights.

GreenRoad 360 is designed to improve fuel efficiency and safety for bus, coach, van and other organizational fleets.

The new additions to GreenRoad 360 include:

  • Posted Speed Performance, which automatically captures incidents where a vehicle is traveling above the posted speed limit. The feature can be customized to suit specific fleet policies and features color-coded graphical reporting.
  • Idling Heat Maps, which provide fleet managers with an “at-a-glance” view of idling hot spots across specific geographies and routes. Idling policies can be customized to specific fleet vehicles and specific fleet operations or locations. Proactive idling management can help fleet managers achieve up to a typical fuel consumption savings of around 10 percent, according to GreenRoad.
  • Expanded data integration that includes live delivery of GPS data, fleet administration automation interfaces and behavioral insight interfaces.

“To see where the buses are idling is definitely a good management tool,” said Linda Kleingardner, operations and safety manager for Rolling V Transportation Services. “With GreenRoad, we are able to reduce the idling by about 25 percent. Drivers were also pulling up to school an hour early and idling, and we can reduce that. The drivers are more aware now, and the new idling heat maps will add another level of insight.”

GreenRoad’s customers include First Group, the UK’s largest bus and rail operator company, and Ryder, which provides transportation, logistics and supply chain management solutions worldwide.
