High Index generates result

She continues by saying that "drivers have the possibility with every load, heavy or light and in every weather condition to drive with a behavior of their best environmental and traffic safety level. The measurements are compiled in a Green Wheels index, defined by Ahola Transport. To get a high Green Wheels Index the driver must reduce the speed, avoid vehicle idling, be able to take advantage of the kinetic energy of the vehicle and have a proactive driving that avoids harsh and unnecessary braking.The investment enables a positive increase of Green Wheel Index for the entire fleet, summarize Birgitta Hatt.

The concept Green Wheels is already used by Ahola Transport as a tool in the extensive environmental work that is done in the company. A high index indicates a safe, environmental friendly and economical driving.

“- Ahola Transport is one of our key customers that have used out Fleet Management solution for many years. We look forward to the opportunities the cooperation will offer as Vehco is implemented in the entire fleet and is integrated with Ahola Transport business solutions. Ahola Transport is at the forefront and has given us important feedback that has helped us develop our product” says Magnus Orrebrant, CEO, Vehco Group.
