Needed a plan for investing in fleet electrification 

ITS ConGlobal (ITSC), one of the largest transportation support companies in the U.S., has long believed that it must operate sustainably—especially as the transportation and logistics industry is a leading source of CO2 emissions. Recent legislation aims to reduce greenhouse gasses (GHG) emissions from operations in the private sector. Still, ITSC has consistently invested in sustainable operations and stays well ahead of government-imposed regulations and timelines. In particular, they were interested in switching from diesel to electric vehicles (EVs). 

EVs are a significant investment of time and resources, especially considering the diverse needs of ITSC’s mixed fleet. They put together a systematic, data-driven plan for electrifying their fleet, starting with a pilot.

Detailed reports informed fuel-saving and fleet electrification decisions 

To understand where there were areas of opportunity to implement EVs and improve sustainability, ITSC began reviewing utilization and fleet idling reports for each of their sites within Samsara. With these tools, ITSC could rightsize its fleet, reallocate equipment, and better understand where EV investments would make sense. They also used Samsara to build what they dubbed an “Easter Sunday view”—a view of their operations at full capacity—that provided an understanding of their vehicle utilization.

They used this information to convince leadership to invest in EVs. This data also allowed them to be better prepared to outfit each facility's fleet, repurpose or dispose of underperforming equipment, and work to reduce idling.

[Management Effectiveness - Real Time Information]

They’ve been able to secure resources early, meaning they already have placed orders for new  EVs before production, allowing them to get ahead of anticipated supply chain issues. 

[Efficiency Improvement - Operation]

The impact on their operations is far-reaching,  contributing to their emissions goals and saving fuel and improving worksite safety.

Implemented 35 EVs with plans to expand
