PeopleNet launches MPG Guarantee Program

PeopleNet's vice president of operations points out that the cost of fuel is the most critical issue fleets face today, and the efficient purchase and use of that fuel is an urgent challenge. "For most fleets, it means the difference between profit and loss. For some it's a matter of survival."

According to Ochsendorf, the goal of the MPG Guarantee Program is to increase fleet mpg by from 5% to 10%. At today's fuel prices, that can represent millions of dollars.

In any case, PeopleNet guarantees the mpg benefit will exceed the cost of the program within one year or all fees will be refunded.

"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."

The PeopleNet MPG Guarantee Program involves a year-long collaboration during which PeopleNet Professional Services will audit customer practices, then develop and implement a plan.

Ochsendorf said PeopleNet's MPG Guarantee Program includes six distinct phases that begin with an in-depth analysis of fuel purchasing, maintenance, driver habits, operating efficiency and equipment specs. It goes on to establish measurement benchmarks and a custom, fleet-specific plan to improve mpg.

The program also includes training for in-company trainers to carry the program forward and a long-term plan to make sure that mpg benefits are maintained well beyond that first year.
