Monitoring driving behaviour and providing the right coaching not only helps to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions up to 7 %, it also helps to reduce maintenance costs such as brake and tire wear by 12 % or more.
Michielsens manages about 20 heavy trucks which are large fuel consumers. In order to reduce their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions Michielsens can install the Suivo Telematics Interface which provides a wireless connection to the vehicle’s data networks. When using this interface and its web application, the fleet managers get an accurate view of the statistics regarding cruise control usage, excessive RPM, excessive torque and fuel consumption during idling. In addition, the vehicle’s odometer and fuel level are displayed in real-time on the Suivo Live Tracking views. Obviously the Telematics Interface is a great tool to coach drivers.
