Why you should start using Eco Driving now?

The way that a driver behaves behind the wheel can cut or skyrocket the costs for fuel and vehicle maintenance.Teaching drivers good driving habits will save business a significant amount of fuel and reduce vehicle maintenance costs.

It is better known as the Eco Driving – practice of driving in such a way as to minimize fuel consumption, the emission of carbon dioxide and vehicles wear and tear.

How to start Eco Driving?

In order to apply Eco Driving to the fleet, tools that would show how economic is the fleet and drivers behaviour are needed. One of such tools is Eco Driving module in TrustTrack software.

Eco Driving module shows safety and economy analysis of fleet and for each vehicle and driver separately. The analysis is made by taking into account the following vehicle parameters:

  • Fuel consumed;
  • Fuel consumption per 100 km;
  • Fuel wasted;
  • Dangerous driving points;
  • Driven distance;
  • Driving time;
  • Idling time;
  • Extreme braking events;
  • Harsh braking events;
  • Harsh acceleration.

Fleet summary and analysis

Detailed analysis can be shown for a whole  fleet and separately by vehicle and driver. The parameters can be customized according to your needs, increase or decrease is clearly shown with green and red indicators and results can be compared with the previous periods.

Fleet summary contains of vehicle and driver ratings that allow to evaluate and motivate the best performers.

Another great module feature is the ability to view Eco Driving related events, such as harsh acceleration or braking on the map.

Driver trainings

The biggest value that Eco Driving module creates is that it gives all the needed information for driver’s behaviour improvement. Having a detailed information on each driver’s performance together with identified driving mistakes allows to improve key areas that in the end will result in lower fuel consumption and reduced maintenance costs.

Improve a driver’s behaviour to reduce fuel and maintenance costs.
