Advanced Commercial Truck Navigation
Part 2 of our Best Practices is designed to help companies who have implemented truck navigation solutions into their business operations and are ready to optimize and tailor their routes.
Reducing Costs with Route Optimization
Did you know?
- Toll costs are increasing 3%-15%1 year over year?
- Traffic costs the trucking industry $50 billion annually
- Companies who select fuel/rest stops saving 5%-10%
After a completing a successful commercial truck navigation implementation, route optimization is the next key step to cost savings and increased profit. To begin to understand where you have the opportunity to optimize, first analyze costs attributed to tolls and traffic congestion. Additional potential factors to consider are altitude sensitive loads, the use of ferries, and if you have issues meeting SLAs. By determining these factors, you can start to identify where to optimize.
