Fleet Analysis and Planning
We help establish initial operating baselines, develop key performance indicators, and assess current operations to provide a framework for initial and ongoing evaluation. We assess how advanced vehicle and fuel choices fit operationally and compare costs and environmental outcomes. From there, we recommend a variety of strategies to increase operational efficiencies.
We help you develop a comprehensive, long-term plan then work closely with you every step of the way to ensure that the implementation process is seamless. We’ll also provide recommendations on future advancements in fuels and technologies that are right for you.
Operator, Technician, and Safety Training
If your staff needs training on vehicle maintenance, data capture, efficient driving, or other topics, we customize a training program to meet your specific needs. These trainings take any format, including webinars, formal in-person sessions, tutorials, group discussions, lunch-n-learns, and more. We also keep you up to date on other topics to ensure that your team remains current.
Grant Writing Services
Since 2008, we’ve secured over $100 million in competitive grants from funding sources for our members and clients.

We offer flexible pricing based on a percentage of the funding, plus a small upfront fee, or pay-per service at a proposed rated based on the projected time to complete the application.
