Industries: Transportation and Distribution
Fuel ranks as one of the top operational expenses for any fleet operator, so it is vital that carriers audit their spending down to every gallon. However, auditing fuel usage is a complex, labor-intensive process that yields variable results from month to month and often poses more questions than answers.
The only robust solution to inaccurate fuel consumption data is to calibrate it - to reflect the true, real-world fuel economy for each vehicle in the fleet. Without accurate fuel burned data, it is impossible to compare drivers objectively against each other, individual vehicles against one another or makes and models from one another.
ORBCOMM’s Fuel Auditor overcomes these challenges by providing an automated method of auditing fuel down to each gallon burned by every truck. This delivers immediate fuel savings, reduces maintenance costs, prevents theft and improves purchase decision, using deep analytics, calibration technology and driver coaching tools.

Pro-400 – Improve Fuel Efficiency and Fleet Safety
The Pro-400 is designed to dramatically change unsafe driving behaviors and prevent crashes in an easy-to-implement, easy-to-manage fleet safety solution. Plus, use verbal coaching to correct driver behavior (speeding, acceleration, harsh braking) in real-time and use on-board diagnostics to reduce vehicle wear, operating and fuel costs. Monitor miles per gallon (mpg) for each fleet vehicle and driver on a daily basis.
GT 1100: Reduce Fuel Costs and Cycle Times
ORBCOMM’s solar-powered GT 1100 can help track changes in fuel levels, detect theft and rapid fuel loss by reading sensor data. Compare invoices with refuel events. Analyze fuel usage by customer, location and order number to further reduce fuel costs.
FleetManager is a cloud-based analytics platform and information management engine which unlocks valuable data for every user in the organization.
Optimized to work with ORBCOMM’s truck, trailer, reefer and container monitoring devices, FleetManager delivers advanced reporting and analytics for the entire fleet on one single platform. With mapping, reports, alerts and exception management, FleetManager provides all that is needed to ensure regulatory compliance, maximize asset utilization, minimize operational costs, increase driver productivity and improve customer satisfaction for better ROI.
Depending on your fleet, FleetManager can be configured to display specific workspaces with individual workspaces for dispatchers, fleet managers or the safety and compliance team. Its powerful features include individualized customization, advanced data mining, configurable reporting, intelligent search options, multi-user management and advanced mapping.
CargoWatch: Improve Fuel Efficiency and Trailer Fleet Visibility
ORBCOMM’s CargoWatch delivers near-real-time alerts on trailer status, location, history, and arrival/departure, helping significantly improve operational efficiency, fuel and maintenance costs and cargo security. Reduce out-of-route miles, driver time, fuel costs, and eliminate labor for yard checks.
“It’s got to be driver-friendly… that’s the most important thing. The units are very friendly for the drivers in-cab, and very accepted.”
