Why Fuel Management?

Fuel is the biggest overhead expense in many organizations.In fact, it is not just the fleet and logistics companies that have to bear the loss in case their vehicles show bad performance in fuel efficiency parameters, but many other organizations also get affected with rising fuel overhead. An efficient fuel management system is necessary to reduce the consumption of fuel and help companies to make a significant saving on the operational cost.

To increase Fuel efficiency, reduce fuel cost and prevent fuel theft, Fuel Monitoring Solution is introduced. Fleet Management Solution with Fuel Monitoring Solution works as an effective instrument to control Fuel wastage.Fuel Monitoring & Vehicle tracking solution is considered as one of the best Telematics solutions.

Features of a Fuel Monitoring Solution

Automated fuel accounting and reporting– Provides you with precise fuel measurements and customized reports for detailed analysis on fuel consumption and monthly fuel consumption report so that you can detect anomalies and eliminate it. Get fuel log & cost/km reports. There is no need to have records on paper anymore, all data will be recorded automatically

Why do you need Tyre Pressure Monitoring?

Tyre pressure monitoring system is integrated into gps tracking solution, offering new tyre management for fleet managers and company bosses and end users. TPMS allows users controls the human safety, security and enhance the productivity of tires use and prolong the tires life to lower down the maintenance cost on tires.

Tyre Pressure Sensors send signals to TPMS receiver. If TPMS receiver or gps tracking device doesn’t receive signal from one of sensors, and gps tracking device detects continuous trembles, software platform would consider it as tyre theft and send alerts.

Reduce tyre maintenance cost, Extend the life of the tire : Over-inflation or under-inflation would cause problems to tyres. Under-inflated tyres have shorter lifespan. The center of tyre’s thread would be worn much if over inflated. TPMS would send alerts if tyres are over-inflated or under inflated status. So users can adjust the tyre pressure in properly inflated status. Proper inflation would make tyres wear more evenly. It prolongs the tyres life and reduce the tires maintenance cost.

Improve fuel economy and reduce CO2 emission : Proper tyre inflation would optimize tyre performance and fuel economy. Under inflation increases the contact area of tyre. It would lead to more fuel consumed for more power. And over inflation would cause much noise from the road surface, hard suspension. Proper tyre inflation requires less power to drive vehicle moving.

Increase the drivers safety, protect company assets : The TPMS function in gps tracking also protect the drivers, decreases the tyres blown-up possibility. Tyre blown-up leads to severe accident. TPMS function would alerts driver or fleet management to take initiatives to handle the potential tyres issues.


So in a nutshell, Fuel Monitoring Solution & Tyre Pressure Monitoring Solution alone can improve your TCO by about 50 percent at the cost of the easiest installation at a very nominal installation & maintenance cost. Both devices are non intrusive and require no vehicular modification.

Driver Behavior Monitoring is the key to Safe and Efficient Fleet Management

Did you know that for a fleet management company, the drivers play a key role in defining the TCO. Most of the accidents on the roads are attributed to unruly driver behavior while a good driver can expand the life of your vehicles and reduce the cost of your vehicle operation by a considerable amount. Driver behavior monitoring is a vital tool which allows a fleet manager to understand the driving style of the driver that might not be safe or efficient and therefore in need of correction.

Mileage drop, over speeding, idling, over driving and much more are some very pressing factors that most of the vehicle owners are quite concerned about apart from constantly stressing about the safety of vehicles in the hands of drivers.

Driver Behavior Monitoring

Types of Driver Behavior that affect Fleet Management System

One of the top driver related vehicle concerns that need to be addressed are:

  • Harsh braking
  • Harsh Accelerations
  • Sharp Turn
  • Vehicle Idling
  • Over-speeding
  • Over-driving

What is Harsh braking and Harsh acceleration?

Harsh acceleration of braking is an event when the driver has applied more than normal force to the vehicle’s brake or accelerator. Also called the lead foot syndrome, harsh braking or acceleration can indicate rash driving, lack of proficiency or even possible accident. It must be noted that higher frequency of such events is not only an indicator of rash driving, but also does it affect the overall health of the vehicle in the long term.

Additionally, it is a known fact that frequent harsh acceleration & braking also considerably drops the vehicle fuel mileage

Other alarming problems of harsh braking/acceleration

Environmental hazard: Harsh braking and acceleration is known to make vehicles emit more gases into the environment, adding to the air pollution.

Brake damage: Harsh braking overheats the breaks of the vehicles and reduces their lifespan. The metal components and brake pads face major damage risks in the long run, adding to unwanted maintenance expenditure

Other Driving behaviors that affect fuel efficiency

Sharp Turns affects car’s transmission system and it also hurts engine. Excessive idling also results in fuel wastage,Idling 8 hours a day can waste a lot of amount, and increase maintenance costs.

Excessive speeding or over-speeding is also a problem statement for fleet managers, over speeding often leads to some unnecessary damage of your vehicle and accidents, which becomes a liability. Over-speeding is also one of the biggest causes of fuel wastage. It decreases gas mileage when a driver exceeds speed than the vehicle’s optimal fuel efficiency.

To run a successful business fleet is not about hiring drivers to drive your vehicle, it also depends on how you can monitor your driver activities. You never know whether they’re engaging in risky driving behavior and  often misuse the vehicle. Many drivers run out-of-route, for example, such as for trips to the grocery store, meeting a personal friend, or picking up his kids from school,etc. These extra trips also increases your business operational cost. It is always better to minimize this extra fuel consumption, and monitor your driver behavior.

Battery Powered GPS Vehicle Tracker by AssetTrackr

GPS tracking technology is adopted very early by the security industry. In fact, before it became available for civilian and commercial use, the benefits of GPS for security purposes was identified by the military. GPS Vehicle Tracker has become more common and used in a variety of deployments.
