15pc fuel savings for haulier

Essex haulier KBC Logistics is rolling out GreenRoad’s driver performance management system to its entire fleet, after its initial uptake cut fuel consumption by 15 per cent.

The firm also saw savings of between £600 and £1,000 a month from minimised idling.

Insurer Towergate Underwriting initially encouraged the firm to take up the GreenRoad system, and paid for its use in 20 lorries in August 2012.

Dave Ashford, transport and compliance manager and KBC Logistics director, said: “Having seen the potential to save £50,000 to £100,000 a year, the firm is now happy to invest in GreenRoad across the fleet.”
