Looking Back on 2023 and Looking Forward to 2024!
Air Quality Awareness Week is a national event that takes place every year during the first week of May. This weeklong event is dedicated to raising awareness about air quality and promoting ways to improve it.
History of Air Quality Awareness Week: Air Quality Awareness Week was first observed in 1999 by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and its partners. The goal was to encourage people to learn about the impact of air pollution on their health and the environment. Since then, the event has grown to include a wide range of activities and initiatives to improve air quality.
Earth Day (April 22) is an annual global event dedicated to promoting environmental protection and raising awareness about the importance of sustainability.
As the world is facing the looming threat of climate change, it is vital that individuals, communities, and industries come together to take action for a better future.
The transportation industry is paying attention and taking significant steps toward reducing its environmental impact, and corporate transportation fleets are prioritizing their ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) goals.
JOIN US AT THESE UPCOMING EVENTS TO WITNESS THE UNVEILING OF OUR NEW TECHNOLOGY BREAKTHROUGH THAT WILL HELP DEFINE THE FUTURE OF TRANSPORTATION!
We are excited to announce that we will be attending and exhibiting at several upcoming transportation industry events and conferences in the next few months! Fleet Advantage executives will discuss the state of the industry and providing various complimentary fleet analyses.
This includes demonstrations of our new, groundbreaking analytic tool, which helps to make informed decisions about cost-effective and sustainable transportation options for your fleet. This tool has been developed in response to the needs of our clients and many fleets in the industry and will help fleets evaluate their total cost of ownership and help build a bridge to alternative energies.
Fleet Advantage, a leading innovator in truck fleet business analytics, equipment financing, and lifecycle cost management made public today its 2017 Truck Lifecycle Data Index (TLDI) comparing all-in operating costs of early-model Class-8 trucks to 2018 model-year replacements. The TLDI shows significant cost savings when replacing older-model vehicles with 2018 MY trucks. According to Fleet Advantage’s ATLAAS (Advanced Truck Lifecycle Administrative Analytics Software), the TLDI shows that fleet operators can realize a first-year per-truck savings of $22,162 when upgrading from a 2012 sleeper model-year truck to a 2018 model, a 17% increase in savings compared with year-ago figures ($19,023) for 2017 model-year upgrades.
Fleet Advantage was founded in 2008 on a number of principles formulated around information technology. It was also founded upon the necessity to help organizations improve their tractor fleets’ productivity and to reduce operating costs by improving their fuel efficiency from 6.0 MPG to 10.0 MPG. One of the cornerstones was the Greenhouse Gas Mandate that took effect in 2011 with its requirement to reduce CO2 emissions, which can only be accomplished by improving fuel economy/MPG. The technology and supporting data analytics have arrived, and we are now seeing the results we knew were there - tracking a goal of 10.0 MPG.
A recent success program called “Run on Less”, organized by the Carbon War Room and the North American Council for Freight Efficiency, proved that 10 MPG is possible using technology that are available on the market today. The results exceeded the original 9 MPG goal set by CWR and NACFE.
