California Government Agencies Select Networkfleet to Reduce Fuel Consumption and Lower Emissions

December 21, 2009 - Press Release

SAN DIEGO - Networkfleet, a wireless fleet management provider, announced that the cities of Richmond and Oakland as well as San Diego County and the Alameda County Water District, have selected Networkfleet to reduce fuel consumption and lower vehicle emissions. This adds to a growing list of California government agencies turning to Networkfleet to reduce fleet operating costs, including the counties of Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Sonoma and the cities of Irvine, Napa and Glendora, among others.

With tightening budgets, government agencies are using Networkfleet to improve fleet utilization, lower operating costs, and remotely monitor engine diagnostics. This gives public fleets the ability to monitor and reduce vehicle usage. It also helps them to identify and repair engine problems early and avoid expensive repair costs.

Public fleets are also choosing Networkfleet due to its ability to reduce fuel consumption and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Networkfleet checks vehicle emissions status continuously and notifies the fleet manager immediately if there is a problem so that it can be fixed. In California, fleets can enroll in the Continuous Testing Program to eliminate physical smog checks. Networkfleet's continuous emissions monitoring, combined with the system's ability to reduce fuel usage, lower idle time, reduce vehicle speed and miles traveled, has a significant impact on reducing harmful emissions.

"State and local governments are facing serious budget shortfalls while also developing strategies to deal with the challenges of climate change. Networkfleet can assist in both these areas by reducing operating costs and lowering emissions," said Keith Schneider, president of Networkfleet. "In addition, Networkfleet is working to institute programs in other states similar to that in California so that vehicles can be smog checked continuously rather than every two years. This will help agencies in other states to reach their emission reduction goals."
