On April 6, Samsara announced a new report that allows fleets to understand key performance metrics with contextualized, actionable data based on more than 2 trillion data points collected annually from Samsara’s IoT devices used by customers from a wide range of industries.
Available now for all Samsara fleet customers, the Fleet Benchmarks Report compares fleet’s performance to similar fleets, providing insight into how they’re trending relative to peers. The insights are divided into three key areas: harsh events (harsh braking, harsh acceleration, and harsh turns), speeding, and idling.
The Fleet Benchmarks Report allows fleets to compare their performance to the top 10% of their fleet segment, the average of their fleet segment, or all Samsara customers for the time period selected. Every organization is grouped into a fleet segment with similar driving characteristics, including vehicle type, vehicle utilization, and average trip length.
All data about a fleet segment is anonymized and expressed in aggregated terms in compliance with Samsara’s contractual terms with customers. Each fleet segment contains at least 100 unique customers so an outside party cannot identify an individual customer based on the behavior of a broader fleet segment.
“The Fleet Benchmarks Report provides quantitative indicators, helping us coach, mentor, and recognize our driver team members—ultimately maximizing the services to our community,” said Jose Campuzano, director of logistics at Houston Food Bank. “The Fleet Benchmarks Report helps us be the best in class in our industry. It’s a great operating tool to incorporate in our role fighting food insecurity.”
The Fleet Benchmarks Report is available now for all Samsara customers, accessible through the Samsara dashboard.
