1. A method for assessing vehicle efficiency for one or more vehicles monitored by a fleet management system, the method comprising:

  • receiving, via one or more processors of the server system, vehicle telematics data indicative of one or more vehicle dynamics for a vehicle during one or more time periods;

    identifying, via the one or more processors, engine idle time segments based on the vehicle telematics data, each of the identified engine idle time segments representing a period of time during which the vehicle'"'"'s engine was idling;

    determining, via the one or more processors of the server system, the location of the vehicle when each identified engine idle time segment occurred;

    evaluating, via the one or more processors of the server system, the telematics data to assess vehicle efficiency; and

    providing, via the one or more processors of the server system, for display via a graphical user interface in electronic communication with the server system;

    at least one evaluation results display indicating one or more of the identified engine idle time segments; and

    at least one geographical map;

    wherein the graphical user interface is configured for (a) enabling a user to select at least one of the one or more identified engine idle time segments indicated in the evaluation results display, and (b) in response to the user selecting the at least one of the one or more identified engine idle time segments, indicating the location of the at least one user-selected engine idle time segment on the geographical map.
