From Mobility to Delivery, the Secret to Activating Idle Fleets

Did you know that a typical over-the-road fleet can spend up to 40% of its time idling, with a driver going around in circles looking for work using up to 20% more fuel than the average trucker? When on-demand mobility is done successfully it can create a great balance between the demand and supply cycle and avoid these painful statistics.

Many of the mobility and delivery service providers have changed their ways of operations due to the unprecedented Covid-19 impact. Almost three-quarters (72.6%) of respondents to a Fleet News survey said less than 10% of their company cars are being driven for work as reported in Fleet News

The impact on van fleets is equally significant, but, due to increases in demand from different parts of the economy, such as home deliveries, fewer vans as a proportion of overall fleet operations are standing idle. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) a typical commercial truck can waste a half-gallon of diesel fuel per hour while idling. This is a significant loss in fuel and money to refill it in the long run.
