Samsara introduced its latest fuel efficiency and EV offering, a Sustainable Fleet Management solution designed to provide customers data-driven insights for reducing emissions, jump-starting electrification, and meeting sustainability goals.
Policymakers are launching zero-emission vehicle programs and setting emissions reduction targets that impact commercial fleets. Additionally, fuel costs and growing social and investor demands for more sustainable operations are influencing leaders to better track and report on their progress toward these milestones and in some cases, accelerate fleet electrification. This complex transition will require long-term planning, foresight, and data-driven decisions.
“Electric vehicles have the potential to significantly reduce environmental impact knowing that transportation is a leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions across the globe," said Tim Campbell, managing director and commercial vehicle decarbonization consultant at Campbells Consultancy, in a statement. "With the right technology infrastructure, it is possible in various operations to do this without compromising your supply chain. Commercial fleet electrification has yet to reach an inflection point, but with increased regulatory incentives and reporting requirements, preparedness for this operational shift remains critical.”
- Fuel & Energy Hub (now in open beta) offers a one-stop shop for mixed-fuel fleets — including internal-combustion-engine, EV, and hybrid vehicles — to ensure drivers and assets perform optimally to support sustainability goals. With this new dashboard, operations leaders can visualize an entire fleet's performance while gathering actionable insights into fuel economy, cost, and consumption.
- Sustainability Report (now in open beta) allows customers to visualize their fleet emissions and monitor output across sites and vehicles to pinpoint improvement areas. This report also provides insight into current and predicted fleet emissions over time, so customers can set more accurate targets and track progress against their sustainability goals.
- Charge Control (in open beta this summer) combats driver range anxiety by managing real-time EV charging at scale and identifies charging issues. Customers can create custom charging profiles by groups or by individual vehicles and receive notifications for irregularities.
- EV Suitability Report (now available) provides customers with a tailored list of ICE vehicles within their fleet that are most suitable for EV transition. As an evolution of Samsara’s existing Fleet Electrification Report, this new report now includes assessment for all vehicle types and allows customers to configure electrification criteria for advanced recommendations.
Samsara customers can now leverage these features alongside the platform’s existing Fuel & Energy Report, Driver Efficiency Report, Idling Events Report, and Fleet Benchmarks Report.
“To provide an accurate assessment of their ESG momentum, organizations need a simple way to analyze data points across their entire operations," said Jeff Hausman, chief product officer at Samsara. "We’re hearing this more often from our customers as they look for technology partners to track and report progress toward these goals. With this new solution, we’re able to provide our customers with fuel economy, vehicle utilization, and emissions insights that will help them better understand their opportunity for improvement, and take action.”
Samsara’s Sustainable Fleet Management solution is now available to customers across North America and Europe.
