RECODRIVE is taking up existing Ecodriving initiatives and merging it with good fleet management and logistics optimization practice to push fuel saving in fleets beyond 10%. Commercial (i.e. freight and utilities) and captive (i.e. public transport) fleets from partners and associated entities have acted as demonstrators and show cases for high mileage and/or high specific consumption fleets. Energy conservation champions have been trained to penetrate the procurement departments specifying vehicles, drivers applying ECODRIVING and workshop employees servicing vehicles (tire pressure, air and fuel filter etc.).
Environmentally friendly company management can improve a company’s image, maximise the existing potential for customer loyalty and even produce cost savings. Highlighting the potential benefits of selecting a sustainable range of products and documenting the physical properties of sustainable products is an excellent basis for formulating convincing sales arguments and providing sound advice to customers.
