How To Save Fuel In Your Vending Machine Operations

A long standing problem for vending operators has been the high fuel costs. It seems that each and every time, there is a hike in the cost of fuel. Usually, a vehicle is used for vending operations in order to transport products from the base to the locations. If you have a home-based vending business, it will be your own vehicle and if not, then it will be a vending truck.

It is common for sizeable vending business companies to hie a vending route driver. As a Planet Antares vending operator, you must realize that he can easily waste the fuel of a vending truck by using it for personal errands. This will result in extra costs for your vending business. If the vehicle used is not maintained properly, it can increase your fuel usage. That’s why you need to look for ways to save fuel and eliminate unnecessary wastage.

You need to be aware that technology offers many new ways to save fuel but these are long term solutions that don’t have any impact in the short term. Another problem is that technology requires upfront investment before you can see any results.

Certain operators have added the sattelite-based fleet monitoring to their vending operations. It is also known as Global Positioning System (GPS). It can help in improving operating efficiencies and employee accountability. Fuel can be saved by using this technology in three ways:

1) you will know about any unauthorized use of the vehicle
2) it becomes easier to determine more efficient routing
3) you can monitor the speed of drivers

A long term solution can be to convert to alternative fuels for your Planet Antares vending operations. As compared to deisel or gasoline, propane is less expensive. Apart from this, there are many other options that you can use to cut down on the amount of money spent on fuel. While searching for a fuel alternative, you need to keep the performance differences in mind.

Here are a few tips that can be used by route drivers to save fuel:
1) tires must be properly inflated to induce fuel economy.

3) adjust your schedule to perform maintenance checks.
