Petroleum products distributor Tiger Fuel has selected the GreenRoad 360 service to complement its existing safety program and reduce risky driving behavior within its fleet. GreenRoad says its automated, customizable service empowers drivers and fleets to reduce crashes, improve fuel economy and reduce overall vehicle operating costs.
Tiger Fuel — which transports home heating oil, propane gas and consumer gasoline — says it has seen a 66 percent reduction in risky driving behaviors since deploying the GreenRoad service. “GreenRoad provides an additional layer of safety and training for our entire fleet,” says Frank Conley, operations manager. “We have seen a large reduction in risky driving behavior and strong acceptance of the service among our professional drivers who welcome the immediate in-vehicle feedback and tools to help them become even safer drivers.”
GreenRoad is designed to continuously measure and analyze those maneuvers that most impact safe driving, fuel efficiency and emissions, and focus driver-specific feedback accordingly; drivers are given constant reinforcement in the form of a simple red-yellow-green display. Fleet management and risk and safety professionals gain visibility into driving behavior and have tools to help drivers achieve measurable safety and fuel-efficiency goals. Customizable reports available via e-mail and the GreenRoad Web portal provide individual trip detail, risk analysis and coaching to help drivers sustain improvement.
“Our safety program is designed to encourage drivers to be as safe as possible and to coach their fellow drivers to do the same,” Conley says. “GreenRoad supports our existing program and provides additional incentives to the team. Additionally, it helps us reduce our fuel spend, and as a petroleum products distributor, we appreciate the value in this reduction.”
