If you own or work in a transportation company, then you know that driving is the most non-green activity on planet earth. Burning gasoline, or any other fossil fuel, causes pollution, smog, and global warming from the pollutants released by motorized vehicles. Because we cannot stop driving altogether, the only way to stay green is to drive smart.

Many organizations today create well structured plans that position their companies to effectively reduce carbon emission. Some run long-term media campaigns, while others take a more proactive stance by actually reducing their carbon foot prints.

 

How vehicle inspections can help reduce your carbon footprint

The burning of fossil fuels in vehicles causes the emission of hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and volatile organic compounds — all dangerous to the environment. Developing a vehicle inspection plan for your fleet can help you identify the culprits and detect early signs of carbon emission.

Cars, trucks, railroads, and commercial aircraft are the main sources of carbon emissions in the transportation industry. Nowadays, organizations use vehicle inspections to help check their carbon emission levels and as a general safety standard.

Using an inspection tool like Whip Around is a great way to stay compliant and manage your fleet effectively. Also creating a well structured inspection plan will help your business achieve some of the below benefits:

  • Save the environment - This is the main reason to use inspection tools and create a structured plan to save the environment. With an effectively designed plan, you can reduce your carbon foot print.
  • Protect your assets - Most structured inspection plans will provide valuable data on your fleet, giving you more insight on what needs replacing and what repairs need to be done; ultimately saving you money. 
  • Avoid accidents - New and healthy vehicles do not emit harmful gases — only in rare situations. When you undertake inspections regularly, you will detect faults and failures which when fixed can save lives.
  • Save Trees - using a digital DVIR software like Whip Around you will eliminate all paperwork from the produce saving a huge amount of wasted paper and time. No longer will you need administrative staff to process the paper as the whole process is automated. 

There is so much more you can do to reduce your carbon foot print. But inspection is the major activity that ensures that transportation companies are compliant and adhere to road safety standard. Try Whip Around for free now to show your dedication to your fleet and the environment.
