SEATTLE, WA – Airbiquity (www.airbiquity.com), a leading provider of connected vehicle solutions, today announced its cooperation with Shell to act as the solution integrator for the telematics element of Shell’s new fuel management solution for commercial transport fleet operators: Shell FuelSave Partner.
Airbiquity worked with Shell to develop and test key components of Shell FuelSave Partner. The new fuel management solution, which automatically links customers’ Shell fuel cards with technology installed in the vehicle and a central database, can help customers save up to 10% on fuel and better manage their fuel-related CO2 emissions. It is also one of the only fuel management systems that can automatically calculate fuel-related CO2 emissions on a per tonne-km basis.
Airbiquity’s pan-European infrastructure will support Shell FuelSave Partner as the company deploys in multiple European markets throughout 2010.
“Today’s announcement illustrates Airbiquity’s expertise as a leading provider of comprehensive connected vehicle solutions that offer tangible, quantifiable value,” said Kamyar Moinzadeh, CEO and President, Airbiquity. “Reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions while also improving efficiencies is paramount for all companies. Being selected to support Shell in achieving this is especially rewarding for Airbiquity.”
“We know how tight the margins can be for our transport customers, so we’re always looking at ways to help them manage fuel costs,” said Ruth Cairnie, Vice President for Commercial Fuels, Shell. “Shell FuelSave Partner can help deliver savings of up to 10%, but it also supports customers in monitoring fuel-related CO2 emissions in a way that makes them more manageable. This can be an important benefit for fleet managers who are under pressure to reduce their fleets’ environmental impact.”
As the telematics solution integrator for Shell FuelSave Partner, Airbiquity will manage key components of the telematics service including installation and wireless provisioning. This builds upon Airbiquity’s proven history of designing and delivering connected vehicle solutions for global automotive and transport companies.
