Finding the ROI for Alternative Fuel and Green Technology

If new fuels or tech­nol­o­gy do not yield a real ROI, the chance of wide­spread adop­tion is poor. Break­out ses­sion will tell how fleets and fleet man­age­ment com­pa­nies are quan­ti­fy­ing the costs and ben­e­fits.

ARI will host a break­out ses­sion at this week’s Green Truck Sum­mit dur­ing the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indi­anapo­lis. Bri­an Matuszews­ki, man­ag­er of sus­tain­able strate­gies for ARI, and Gregg Hodg­don, direc­tor of fleet oper­a­tions for The E.A. Sween Com­pa­ny, will explore the ROI of alter­na­tive fuels and green tech­nol­o­gy.

“While many fleets have explored sus­tain­able ini­tia­tives at some point, most have not adopt­ed them because it is dif­fi­cult for fleet man­agers to accu­rate­ly quan­ti­fy the ROI of these strate­gies,” said Matuszews­ki. “Our goal is to help fleet man­agers under­stand how to effec­tive­ly deter­mine the ROI of poten­tial sus­tain­able solu­tions, which in turn will help them to make more informed deci­sions for their fleet.”

The ses­sion will also include a step-by-step method­ol­o­gy fleet man­agers can adapt and use to assess if a pos­si­ble sus­tain­able solu­tion is the right fit for their fleet.  This includes iden­ti­fy­ing vehi­cles that can phys­i­cal­ly sup­port alter­na­tive fuel sys­tems; under­stand­ing and iden­ti­fy­ing where fuel­ing is or can be made avail­able; locat­ing shops where the vehi­cles will be able to receive ser­vice and main­te­nance, or where it might be made avail­able; and iden­ti­fy­ing pos­si­ble finan­cial incen­tives.

ARI’s team of truck and sup­ply chain spe­cial­ists will be on hand in Booth #5351 to dis­cuss all of the chal­lenges that come with man­ag­ing a com­plex voca­tion­al fleet, as well as the lat­est indus­try trends.
