MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — PeopleNet says it can help fleets achieve substantial fuel savings and is backing the claim with a money-back guarantee.
The company has launched an MPG Guarantee program which promises to improve fleet fuel-efficiency.
“The cost of fuel is the most critical issue fleets face today. The efficient purchase and use of that fuel is an urgent challenge,” said Rick Ochsendorf, PeopleNet’s vice-president of operations. “For most fleets, it means the difference between profit and loss. For some it’s a matter of survival.”
As part of the program, PeopleNet works alongside the fleet to evaluate and revise business processes that contribute to fuel mileage, the company says. It’s based on PeopeNet’s 13 years of experience working with fleets to improve fuel economy. The program involves fuel-saving practices and technologies.
Ochsendorf says the program can achieve fuel mileage improvements of five to 10%. If fuel savings don’t surpass the cost of the program, all fees will be refunded, the company claims.
“This involves much more than simply changing driver habits, though that’s certainly a part of it,” Ochsendorf said. “We’ll spend substantial time with the fleet and look at all the elements that can contribute to the goal.”
As part of the year-long program, PeopleNet officials audit a company’s performance and then develop and implement a plan. The program consists of six phases, beginning with an in-depth analysis of fuel purchasing, maintenance, driver habits, operating efficiency and equipment spec’s. It also offers a long-term plan to ensure fuel savings are enjoyed for years to come.
