Optimize fleet pilot and purchase decisions based on real operational requirements
Problems FlexOps solves
Calculating Total Cost of Ownership
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is the core info you need to invest in mixed fleets of Internal Combustion (ICE), Hydrogen Fuel Cell (FCV), and Battery Electric (BEV) vehicles.
Low hanging fruit
Identify the lowest cost and lowest disruption opportunities to insert more sustainable transport options. Where can you deploy shorter range vehicles today without $ on infrastructure?
Optimizing your exposure
Optimize capital expenditure and operating expenses over different time horizons accounting for technology and operational evolution to create a realistic plan.
Begin with the end in mind
Plan a long term strategy by seeing what the future fleet looks like as vehicle technology and your business evolve.
Always ensure that customer demand (today, seasonal, and future projected) is satisfied as the top priority.
How FlexOps solves them
Measure your emissions by integrating your telematics or using our route planning platform to receive actionable, step by step guidance.
Different simulations for different verticals or business units. Let teams operate in parallel or under a single umbrella.
Specify your own fleet mix or let the simulator suggest the best solutions.
Plan the fuelling infrastructure based on proprietary needs and public availability at the least cost.
Here's an example
A parcel distributor wants to achieve Net Zero by 2030, and to do so will need to transition 90% of their diesel truck and van fleet to alternative sustainable transport modes.
They want to use cargo bikes (CB) in dense short-range areas, battery electric vans and trucks (BEV) in areas less than 200km from their depots, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCV) between their depots and to/from the airports.
How it works
First, they import raw data into FlexOps proprietary labelling and normalization engine which transforms the common required information into standard formats.
Create a baseline model
FlexOps creates a baseline model of their existing operations based on customer demands and their existing fleet, and of course, real traffic and routing information.
Identify the low hanging fruit
FlexOps identifies the ‘low hanging fruit’ to swap in CB, BEV, or FCV at the lowest Total Cost of Ownership and within the realistic timelines of the company.
They run multiple simulations across different time horizons and regions to see where and when they should invest in new vehicles and fueling infrastructure.
The results for one major city hub:
They pilot cargo bikes out of a single city hub and pilot 12 BEVs on the short-range routes suggested by FlexOps.
They expand CBs to 5 urban hubs based on FlexOps models, expand BEVs to 40 vans, and implement their first regional FCV trials.
They have validated the CAPEX and OPEX models with a business case, budget, and real-world pilot evidence required to hit Net Zero by 2030. Shareholders rejoice!
