I recently collaborated with numerous data scientists at global telematics firm Geotab on a study titled Fleet refueling: The impact of out-of-route and refueling time on business.
The post uncovers radical new numbers that demonstrate how the simple task of going to the gas station has a profound effect on the bottom line of any business that relies on vehicles to get the job done. Before you even click on the link, prepare yourself for quite a surprise. The highlights of the study include these findings:
- Going to the gas station to keep vehicles fueled takes longer than we thought.
- Our preferred gas stations are further away than we previously thought.
- And we’re going more frequently than we should.
The implications for each of these findings are far-reaching. For an in-depth look at the findings featured in the study, click here.
