Fleet Advantage Offering Complimentary Comparative Cost Analysis and Consultations  

 

 

 

CLEVELAND (September 13, 2021) – Fleet Advantage, a leading innovator in truck fleet business analytics, equipment financing, and life cycle cost management (LCCM) is exhibiting at the American Trucking Association’s TMC Fall Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition in Cleveland from September 12-16. Fleet Advantage will be addressing fleet executives’ focus on driver retention, lowering emissions, and the increased need for more flexibility in truck lease structures. 

 

As Fleet Advantage will illustrate at the TMC event in booth #7004, more fleet executives are leasing their trucks to shorten their life cycle and lower their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). The company recently completed its annual benchmarking survey and found that 31% of fleet respondents are leasing their trucks, significantly up from last year when only 14% of fleet executives said they were leasing.  

 

However, lease structure is a major area of concern for many as 28% of fleets are in an unbundled lease agreement and “see greater value on flexible fuel and maintenance costs”. This compares to 20% who say they are locked in a full-service lease with some saying they are “trying to escape the contract because of inflexible costs on fuel and maintenance”.  Additionally, 41% of fleet executives say the supply of new trucks and inventory challenges have altered their truck procurement plans due to lead times.  

 

In addition to procurement strategies and lease structures, there are many challenges affecting transportation fleet operations. Visit Fleet Advantage at booth #7004 for a Complimentary Comparative Cost Analysis or a Consultation! Fleet Advantage’s certified truck professionals will be assisting fleets by offering solutions to both company-specific and industry-wide issues affecting daily operations. 

 

“Flexibility and agility are important business strategies uncovered during 2020, and fleets that position themselves with the flexibility to adapt to changes in today’s business climate have a significant competitive advantage,” said Don Davis, Senior Vice President, National Accounts.

ENSIGHT TECHNOLOGIES AWARDED PARKING GUIDANCE AND MANAGEMENT CONTRACT FOR LOS ANGELES’ LATEST MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT

September 10, 2021

 

 

 

ENSIGHT TECHNOLOGIES AWARDED PARKING GUIDANCE AND MANAGEMENT CONTRACT FOR LOS ANGELES’ LATEST MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT

 

 

 

SAN DIEGO, CA – Los Angeles’ latest mixed-use development has chosen to leverage EnSight Technologies’ car counting and parking guidance ecosystem for The Grand LA by Related. A two-level sub-terainian parking garage, The Grand LA will be the newest location within EnSight’s rapidly growing portfolio to leverage its machine-learning and neural network software for zone and level counting.

 

Since 2019, EnSight has consulted with Related and CORE (USA) Investment Holding LLC, who owns and manages The Grand LA, on the design for their parking occupancy management and guidance solution for the self-park garage. As construction at The Grand is nearing completion, EnSight’s camera-based and proprietary software will be installed as early as October 2021.

 

The Grand LA is Downtown LA’s newest, dynamic destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Anchored by chef-driven restaurants, a collection of shops, a luxury hotel, and residences, The Grand LA combines lifestyle, arts, culture, and entertainment providing a truly unique experience in Los Angeles.

“To have been selected as the parking occupancy management and guidance solution for The Grand LA is continued evidence that our vision-based software is cost efficient, easy-to-use, and, most importantly, highly accurate. As the latest location to EnSight’s portfolio, the self-park garage at The Grand LA will immediately and directly benefit from our continued investment in our proprietary ecosystem on day 1, and that’s exciting,” stated EnSight Technologies’ Managing Member Chris Scheppmann. “Elevating the parking experience is just one of the many business initiatives Related and CORE are committed to. Once their cloud is populated with parking data, our platform will provide them valuable business intelligence data, so they can make tweaks and improvements to their newly minted parking asset.”

 

EnSight Technologies’ intelligent camera-based solution counts vehicles entering and exiting each zone of each level and transmits that occupancy information to several dynamic LED signs located throughout the parking garage, providing real-time information about how many parking spaces are available, so drivers can quickly and conveniently find parking.

 

EnSight’s parking guidance and occupancy management technology leverages the latest advancements in machine learning to differentiate between vehicle types and vehicle uses. This allows the system to continuously improve performance accuracy as new vehicles are introduced to parking facilities.

Research from ParkOffice shows 48 percent of US companies set to make significant changes to parking post COVID

New report finds 57% of employers concerned about parking carbon footprint

 

 

Research from ParkOffice shows 48 percent of US companies set to make significant changes to parking post COVID

 

UNITED STATES: A new report from Manhattan-based parking management software ParkOffice has, today, revealed that almost 60 percent of employers say the impact of employee parking on the environment is a far bigger concern to them than it was 5 years ago. The ‘State of Employee Parking Report 2021’ featured research from 105 parking leaders across 15 countries and was carried out in the first week of September. ParkOffice is a leading parking management software solution that enables employers to optimise employee parking.

With a recent report from the United Nations warning that global warming will enter a critical zone within 20 years, ParkOffice’s findings indicate that workplaces have become more environmentally conscious and are set to shift to greener parking solutions. Last week, the company launched its new spotshare software, which will enable multitudes of companies to share, swap and trade parking spots based on demand.

The new State of Employee Parking Report 2021 also found that:

  • 80 percent of businesses with over 100 employees reported a growing sense of environmental consciousness

  • 62 percent of all businesses with over 1 thousand employees were experiencing parking problems

  • 41 percent of employers found lack of parking spaces at their office was their biggest problem

  • 30 percent of company bosses believe that flexible working is going to make parking harder to manage

To view the full report please click here.

According to a study by a group of civil engineers from UC Berkeley, parking emits greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. With around 3.4 parking spaces in America for each car, it’s estimated that the environmental cost of those could increase the amount of carbon dioxide emitted per mile by as much as 10 percent for the average vehicle. In addition to this, research from the OECD states that cruising for parking considerably increases CO2 emissions and is a primary cause of outdoor air pollution at the core of urban areas.

ParkOffice hopes to help reduce such carbon emissions through encouraging people to ‘park pool’ and share spots in multi-tenant buildings where demand allows, to help businesses become more environmentally friendly.

Speaking about this latest research, Garret Flower, CEO and Founder of ParkOffice said:

“With 57 percent of employers concerned about their parking carbon footprint, these findings indicate a positive shift in employers wanting to plan shared spots to reduce carbon emissions post COVID. It signifies a positive move towards park pooling in a new, hybrid working world which will help reduce headaches and stress on workers all while helping curb the environmental impacts of cruising for parking.”

Latest Fleet Advantage Industry Benchmark Survey Shows Fleets Are Focused On Truck Acquisition Challenges, Emissions Reduction Plans and Lease Structures

Latest Fleet Advantage Industry Benchmark Survey Shows Fleets Are Focused On Truck Acquisition Challenges, Emissions Reduction Plans and Lease Structures

 

Leasing Shows Gains; Fleets See Fuel Economy, Maintenance and Driver Retention As Biggest Motivators for Truck Replacement

 

 

 

 

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (September 8, 2021) – Fleet Advantage, a leading innovator in truck fleet business analytics, equipment financing, and life cycle cost management (LCCM) today announced results of its latest fleet industry benchmarking survey showing how trends in fuel economy, maintenance, environmental concerns and procurement strategies have changed since last year. Click here for full survey responses.

Procurement Strategies & Lease Structure Are Top-of-Mind
According to this year’s survey, 41% of fleet executives say the supply of new trucks and inventory challenges have altered their truck procurement plans due to lead times. Seventeen percent have begun to identify alternate procurement strategies in the acquisition of new trucks. Another 17% say the inventory challenges mean they may hold onto current trucks even longer than normal, which may be detrimental to their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Thirty-one percent of respondents said they are leasing their trucks, significantly up from last year when only 14% of fleet executives said they were leasing. However, lease structure is a major area of concern for many as 28% are in an unbundled lease agreement and “see greater value on flexible fuel and maintenance costs”. This compares to 20% who say they are locked in a full-service lease with some saying they are “trying to escape the contract because of inflexible costs on fuel and maintenance.”

Lastly, 68% stated they are monitoring possible tax policy changes as part of their procurement strategies.

Maintenance, Fuel Economy and Driver Retention Remain Biggest Motivators for Truck Replacement
Sixty-four percent of fleet executives report costs associated with maintenance and repair (M&R), and 44% say improved fuel economy are the leading motivators for truck replacement. This is similar to last year when 55% of fleet executives cited M&R and 47% said improved fuel economy. This is interesting since 17% of fleets are considering holding onto their older, more inefficient trucks even longer than normal because of the current inventory challenges of new trucks as previously mentioned.

A new comment in this year’s survey because of pandemic-related business challenges, 31% of fleet executives said their biggest motivator for procurement was to right-size the number of trucks in their fleet to align with economic conditions, which changed rapidly during the pandemic in 2020. Other motivators included more safety features added by OEMs, the importance of improved corporate image and the conservation of natural resources/lower CO2 emissions through newer clean-diesel engines. This is reinforced in the National Private Truck Council’s (NPTC) 2021 Benchmarking Study which said 89% of fleets are investing in greening initiatives.

Furthermore, driver retention was the third-largest motivator to replace aging trucks, and in addition to new equipment, compensation and driver benefits were also listed as beneficial for driver retention.

Electrification Remains in the Distance for Fleets
The majority of fleets continue to believe clean-diesel technology remains more viable for emissions reduction than a move to electric vehicles. More than half of fleet respondents (54%) said they may consider electric class-8 trucks for over-the-road between 5-10 years from now, and only 3% of fleet executives are currently procuring electric trucks today. A year ago, 30% of respondents said they do not see electric trucks widely in service for another 10 years. Regarding autonomous trucks, 53% said they don’t see these widely in use for another 10 years (62% last year).

“Our annual benchmarking study provides us and the industry with a close look at the issues that are most important to fleet executives today, and the decisions that are helping to shape their business strategies,” said John Flynn, CEO of Fleet Advantage. “This year’s study shows that procurement strategies, an emphasis on unbundled leasing, specific replacement motivators and a stronger focus on environmental, social, governance (ESG) are all critical for fleets today.”

Flowbird Provides Convenience To South Dakota State Parks Staff and Visitors

Flowbird Provides Convenience To South Dakota State Parks Staff and Visitors

 

 

Touch Screen Parking Kiosks Provide For Simple Parks Fee Collection

 

 

 

Moorestown, NJ —  Flowbird Group, a global leader in unattended payment technology and mobile payment applications, has announced the successful deployment of automated fee machines for its latest parks & recreation client – South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks.  The agency released an RFP at the end of 2020 for the procurement of Self-Service Kiosks to aid visitors in purchasing various self-service products at South Dakota State Parks and Recreation areas.  Flowbird was awarded the project and quickly delivered over 80 pay stations, which were subsequently installed across 57 parks statewide.

 

The deployment of pay stations comes at the right moment as South Dakota State Parks saw record visitation numbers last year.  In 2020, over 8 million people visited the parks, up 31% from 2019 and 16% higher than the next highest year (2013).  Many different outdoor activities are available throughout the parks including hiking, biking, camping, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, and snowmobiling to name a few.

 

The Flowbird pay stations are built for unattended environments, and can be installed in any climate.  With solar power and wireless functionality, agencies can place them just about anywhere within their parks. The South Dakota State Parks pay stations feature a 9” full color touch screen display to make it easy for park visitors to purchase either a daily pass or an annual pass with a credit card.  When visitors make their purchase of an annual pass, they are prompted to provide their mailing address so the agency can send an official hard copy version of the pass in the mail.

 

This project benefits parks visitors and agency staff.  Now visitors can quickly pay for their admission passes at the Flowbird pay stations while parks staff manage other critical day-to-day activities.  Additionally, when entrance stations are not staffed, parks visitors can still pay for their admissions.

 

Parks staff have 24/7/365 access to Flowbird’s back-office system, providing real-time visibility on parks admissions, with the capability to view the activity at each of the 57 parks.  Flowbird hosts all of the data, and provides South Dakota State Parks with web based access to run custom reports and monitor the status of each pay station.

 

“We are very pleased to work with the South Dakota State Parks team to deploy this customer friendly solution,” said Benoit Reliquet, President of Flowbird North America.  “We see that more and more people are visiting parks across the country and our technology is a natural fit to provide park goers with a great experience while reducing the amount of time agency staff need to spend collecting admission fees.”

 

South Dakota State Parks joins several other state agencies that have deployed Flowbird solutions including Colorado Parks & Wildlife, Delaware State Parks, New Hampshire State Parks, Washington State Parks, and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

HUB Parking Technology: Ginnetto Parking Alleviates Traffic Stress in Foggia City Center

HUB Parking Technology: Ginnetto Parking Alleviates Traffic Stress in Foggia City Center

 

 

Can a smooth ride and safe parking make it easier to get back to work after the vacations? Without a doubt! Especially if there is a lot of traffic and the city center is a Limited Traffic Zone (or LTZ), as in the case of Foggia, Apulia.

The historic Ginnetto parking lot, managed by ATAF, is strategically located just outside the LTZ, and helps to relieve the pressure of vehicles in the area thanks to 87 stalls on multiple levels.

Since May 2021, the entry and payment of parking are guaranteed by a Jupiter system with slim stations, Selea cameras for LPR recognition of license plates and an automated pay station for the renewal of subscriptions. Users reach the Ginnetto access ramp, the LPR camera at the entrance recognizes their license plate and the barrier opens, welcoming them into the parking lot in just a few seconds.

The previous manual management of season tickets relied on proximity technology, i.e. the action of the driver to bring the card close to a reader: although reliable, it was subject to the unexpected or simply the difficulty of finding the card, thus complicating the entry process.

LPR technology eliminates this risk, and for the driver the need to always have the access medium with him: the license plate is in fact always available and in the right position to be framed and recognized by the camera, which ensures very high reading accuracy even in low light situations.

For ATAF staff, the management of subscriptions and traffic flows is much more straightforward, allowing them to dedicate more comprehensive services to the users of the Ginnetto parking lot.

 

About HUB Parking Technology:

HUB Parking Technology is the Business Unit of the FAAC Group that develops software and intelligent mobile solutions produces, installs, and supplies hardware and after-sales services for the professional management of paid parking spaces. HUB Parking Technology offers flexibility, competence, and personalized and widespread assistance at a local level, combined with the capacity, network, and strength of a global operator. Over the years, the company has constantly innovated to develop state-of-the-art systems and integrated value-added solutions that make parking efficient for users, and profitable, and easy for operators to manage.

Bill joined Allpro’s corporate team in a Business Development capacity in February 2021 with more than a decade of experience in parking management in Buffalo. Initially, his position was focused on a proposal to manage the City of Buffalo–owned parking garages. However, he has since assisted Tom Eckl, West District Manager, and Rick Doetterl, Project Manager & Loss Prevention Manager, on a variety of proposals and has helped the company land several new contracts.

“In his time spent with Allpro Parking, Bill has demonstrated all of the unique skills that are required of a District Manager,” said Richard Serra, President and CEO of Allpro Parking. “This is a well-deserved promotion, and we look forward to seeing how Bill continues to thrive in his career.”

Prior to working in parking, Bill was a middle school teacher. He also worked as an independent contractor in painting and remodeling. Eventually, he found himself in the parking industry, and for about 12 years he learned every aspect of the parking business while managing the City of Buffalo garages. In early 2021, Bill was offered a Project Manager position with Allpro Parking.
