These days, managing a commercial fleet grows more and more challenging. Gas prices are increasing exponentially, and global instability is becoming ever more present with each passing day. In the U.S., gas prices have risen 33.39% in the last 5 years. This, paired with regulatory change, fiscal pressures, and social and political unrest would only make sense to move towards an all-electric vehicle fleet. 

However, an operation of this magnitude can quickly become a disaster without the right strategy and tools to make this transition smooth. Here are a few ways to make your electrification process a breeze.

What is Fleet Electrification?

Fleet Electrification is the shift from internal combustion engine vehicles (ICE) to electric vehicles (EV). With the ever-growing necessity of cutting the use of fossil fuels, building an all-electric fleet, in the long run, would not only be better for your pockets but also better for the world we live in.

Of course, some issues can arise if you are considering following through with this process. Issues like:

  • Slow data-collection/guesswork
  • Route optimization challenges
  • Employee and asset safety issues

While these can be major issues as you go through the process of fleet electrification, know that there are solutions you can use to reduce uncertainty dramatically.

How Can You Optimize the Electrification Process?

Optimizing this process with fleet maintenance management software will give you the results and efficiency you’ve been working so hard to find. So, let’s dive into how you can optimize the process of electrifying your fleet!

Better Decision-Making by Using AI

How often does guessing get in the way of your fleet management needs? Fleet maintenance management software help but not enough. There’s still plenty that can be automated. Artificial intelligence that collects and analyzes legacy and real-time data is the solution. Leverage AI to make your entire fleet’s daily decision-making and operation a breeze. Especially during such a delicate process as fleet electrification. 

The use of AI can help plan better routes and decrease real-time challenges that result in towing. By boosting fleet operators’ route planning capabilities, drivers are less anxious on the road while successfully avoiding roadblocks, traffic accidents, etc. 

You could even reduce manpower needs and increase your employees’ safety and peace of mind.

Route Planning and Battery Prediction

Planning your routes can be quite a hassle. Even with ICE vehicles, you must calculate how much gas drivers would need to make the trip. There is so much room for error and gas price increases. Not to mention potentially needing to re-route and even potential leaks in vehicle gas tanks. 

By optimizing your fleet electrification process and combining accurate battery consumption with real-time and accurate route planning, you could avoid these issues almost instantaneously. Let AI select the best vehicle to dispatch by combining the data from the individual EV battery consumption with 98% accuracy and calculate the most efficient route for fleet, driver, and company reputation. AI  dramatically decreases the threat of vehicle batteries dying on the road, boosting confidence, stability, and all-around efficiency.

Reducing CO2 Emissions 

Using fleet maintenance management software to help calculate costs and financial impact usually excites businesses. While large organizational changes come down to money, many organizations also try to have a positive environmental impact. 

Growing awareness of climate change now puts reducing CO2 emissions at a higher priority, third after financial impact and employee wellness. Fleet electrification not only helps significantly reduce CO2 emissions but also increases productivity, real-time reporting, and driver safety, which increases the chances of building more trust with your investors, fleet managers, and clients.

Promote Employee Wellness and Safety

According to Cameron Feil at GeoTab, it can also build a better relationship with your employees. 

Shifting to an all-electric fleet can keep your employees and assets safer than ever. EV batteries are distributed throughout the bottom of each vehicle, giving them a lower center of gravity, making rollover collisions less likely to happen. This is something that would statistically decrease the fatality rate of the drivers. 

Also, EVs don’t have as many parts to take up space in each vehicle, allowing the drivers to be more protected if there is a collision, as the vehicle would absorb more of the impact.

Combine Accurate Battery Prediction and Route Planning

Make your fleet’s electrification process hassle-free and help your company go green while increasing the fleet’s effectiveness and profits in the long term with Make My Day!
