What are the top 3 concerns fleet firms must tackle in 2023?
As the world evolves towards a net zero future, many firms are edging closer to becoming more sustainable, being proactive rather than reactive. This is a concept that is only being adopted by the few and not the many. What are the top concerns fleet managers and firms that have an operation of vehicles must contend with in 2023?
1. Fuel & Range Anxiety
It’s no secret that fuel and range is an area that fleet managers must grapple with. A survey of over 1800 respondents from Teletrac Navman revealed that 39% of respondents listed this as their primary concern. The rising costs combined with the true mileage visibility invariably acts as a deterrent for switching vehicle types. One reason is down to the mileage not living up to the advertised specification, often falling short by 20 or 30%.
2. Technology Changes
Almost half of the survey submitters, are thinking of adapting technologies into their systems especially around seamless video integration and workflows to improve driver's experience. The positive news is that most of the fleet survey respondents (98%) admitted to using sourced or manufactured-approved telematics devices to monitor performance such as; tracking, driving performance and fuel usage monitoring.
3. Customer Service and Meeting Green Goals
Fleet managers are focused on having a central customer-first policy, making sure their drivers have a high standard performance to deliver their routes to ensure existing market share sustainability as well as modern technology towards greener approaches can meet demands for Net Zero. 48% are planning to move to newer technologies.
Our algorithm uses detailed Ai and Machine Learning models to accurately predict the range of the vehicle, knowing that many factors can affect the range every single day. EVR knows that each electric vehicle and driver are unique. EVR’s algorithms consider almost 20 different variables that affect battery range such as driving behaviour, road speed, battery level, speed acceleration, storage weight, road type, temperature, wind speed and direction etc. This coupled with a “driver buffer” setting ensures that any EV (Electric Vehicle) route generated by EVR will have ample range to complete the routes required.
EVR can either be used to generate and create the routes for your fleet directly, posting the approved route direct to our mobile phone app to route the drivers accurately. Or if you have a solution in place, then utilise our advanced API to enhance the accuracy of your routing returning the results that are compatible with many existing telematics companies.
