For Veolia Environmental Services’ operating groups, reducing waste is not only a key part of the company’s mission, but also a key objective in the company’s fleet operations. To help it fulfill that objective, in 2010 the Electronics Recycling Division (ERD) of Veolia ES Technical Solutions, LLC adopted Zonar’s electronic fleet management system. The system includes an electronic vehicle inspection reporting (EVIR) solution for pre- and post-trip inspections and an onboard telematics platform. The telematics system captures data including fuel consumption, rate of travel, idle time and fault codes. The ERD monitors this data to manage driver performance and streamline the maintenance process.
