|Implementation of ITS solutions in the emerging market of Egypt is at an early stage, yet has made significant progress. In the framework of PHAROS project, low-cost smart solutions have been developed for fleet managers to facilitate efficient route choices and eco-driving that minimize fuel consumption and carbon emissions. These solutions were integrated in an existing fleet management system. This paper presents the theoretical and practical formulation of the rescheduling component added to the already existing fleet management system. The rescheduling component is based on the development of an eco-path that considers the "cost" between two consecutive nodes. By the term "cost", more parameters such as path length, travel time, operating costs, energy consumption required for each route, are taken into account. Based on the above decision-routing parameters, through the use of a routing algorithm, the optimal path between the origin and the destination node is proposed.
