The main aim of Sustainable Transportation is to economically transport services and goods in bulk. It is related to policies, systems, and technologies that are involved with transportation. 1 such latest Techs used in transport is Fleet Management. Fleet Management is a mixture of powerful technologies such as GPS Global Positioning System, two-way radio communications via Low Earth Orbit Satellite Technology, an on-board processing, communications unit, and a hosted web application that shows mapping and automobile telemetric data to the last user. This system is useful for clients to find vehicles and track speed and direction of vehicles particularly for organizations, which demand more transport operations such as courier services etc.
Reduces environment pollution:
Now it has became compulsory for all businesses to discover the carbon print it generates through its transportation operations and prepare appropriate plan of action to reduce and control it. More fuel consumption leads to more environmental pollution. The vehicles used in fleet have to be eco-friendly. They are also called greener vehicles, which emit less carbon dioxide, save fuel, and create less pollution. Usage of electrical vehicles leads to zero emission of gases. Government encourages greener fleets by offering incentives. Driving behavior in fleet is green, which is, there is less fuel consumption and less carbon oxides emission. Firms will need to follow and adhere to green driving policy. Tracking devices with built-in accelerometer will constantly monitor driving events and make sure that drivers fulfill the established security standards.
Reduces societal costs of Transportation:
As gas is saved by using green vehicles in the fleet market, the cost involved in buying fuel can also be reduced. With the support of GPS monitoring system, managers can track every vehicle in their fleet in real time with information on fuel consumption, path efficiency, vehicle diagnostics, and even driver’s functionality is available to them on a daily basis. Though complete fleet management system is not cheap, it is quite effective for long-term savings. Many organizations experience decrease of fuel bills by 40 percent per annum even in the situation where costs of petroleum are hiking up. The concern of fleet managers for environmental issues like pollution can attain both goals of cost benefit by saving fuel bill and environmental friendliness. Replacement of gas running vehicles with LPG fuel system is excellent idea, as it reduces price of fuel and is eco friendly.
Reduces economic prices:
The Economic cost is reduced with the support of FMS as the shortest and less congestion path to the destination could be tracked with that. Because of this, it saves time in traffic and guarantees rapid delivery of products. The organization can improve its efficiency by providing more products in less time.
