EDEN PRAIRIE, MN - GE Capital Fleet Services announced that its Environmental Performance Services with Mobile Resource Intelligence were reapproved as a GE ecomagination product, confirming the significant operating and environmental performance improvements they deliver to customers. As part of the GE ecomagination portfolio, they are reviewed regularly to confirm their performance claims.
The Environmental Performance Services with Mobile Resource Intelligence help customers strengthen their environmental and operating performance by tailoring strategies for their service, sales, and delivery fleets.
Through the Monitor/Manage Mobile Resource Intelligence solution, Strategic Consulting Services, and Truck Engineering Services, customers reduce operating costs and manage CO2 emissions through analysis and reporting, customized vehicle selection, and integrated vehicle efficiency tools.
For example, vehicle efficiency tools such as limiting after hours use, speeding and idling time can help reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions and can yield annual per-vehicle gasoline savings of approximately $265 at $2.76 per gallon, while avoiding the annual emission of 3 metric tons of CO2 on U.S. roads versus typical usage.
In addition, optimizing vehicle selection, right-sizing vehicles within a vehicle class, and/or switching to smaller vehicle classes can help customers improve fuel efficiency from 17% to 59%. This can reduce annual per-vehicle fuel costs by $300 to $1,200 at $2.76 per gallon, and can avoid the annual emission of 1 to 4 metric tons of CO2 per vehicle.
“Our goal is to continually innovate – improving our products and services to allow customers to optimize operational efficiencies, advance corporate environmental goals and cut costs,” said Michelle Nissen, Environmental Performance product manager for GE Capital Fleet Services. “Having the performance of our Environmental Performance Services reviewed regularly confirms we’re delivering on our promise to provide high quality, high return solutions for our customers.”
As an environmental leader within the fleet industry, GE Capital Fleet Services has published two guides on environmentally efficient fleet management and driver best practices. The complimentary guides are available for download here.
