Based on the experience and outcomes of hundreds of projects in Eco-driving, where proper programs for Eco-driving have been implemented, Vehco has seen that it can have the following benefits.

• Up to 15% fuel savings and CO2 emissions.

• 8% less maintenance thanks to a smoother ride and less wear.

• 15% decrease in accidents.

• It is a federative approach that often also creates a better social climate with less stress resulting in lower employee turnover and less sick leave.

• And which can serve as a tool for individual valorization.

• And finally, eco-driving would also be a way to improve the comfort of drivers, who are more in control and less tired and regain the pleasure of driving.

Based on our experience, the key to...

One important area that many of our customers often discuss is how to handle good and bad results, and if any incentives should be offered to great performing drivers. The reason is that in an eco- driving project we are managing humans. Based on our experiences, it is often smart to offer some kind rewards to the drivers who perform best or who has shown the best improvements. It can be an effective and cheap way to promote eco-driving. Vouchers for a weekend, being part of a lottery, an outing for the most successful team, or even a financial reward ... no matter what the reward is, the important thing is the recognition of the results!

Management studies generally agree that the effects of rewards are often more effective than punishments. Some studies would also say that non...

The success of your eco-driving will depend on your communication strategy. A positive and well-constructed communication will engage your employees. The first steps of the preparation are always important. Before launching your eco-driving project, consider communicating about the project. Talk to your different departments and use this opportunity to detect possible issues. Asking employees for advice on defining goals, for example, allows you to actively involve them and ensure their engagement.

Adopt a clear and consistent communication. Consistent with the company’s climate and throughout the project. For example, if the main objective is to respect the environment, make sure that the company respects the basics. How can you ask employees to believe in your project if, for...

Communication of the basic principles of eco-driving must be supplemented by individual theoretical training and in real driving conditions. Why? Quite simply, nothing replaces coaching by an experienced trainer. To ensure long-term results, trainings and reminders are essential. As we saw earlier in the results of the drivers, the trainer can adapt to the specific needs of a driver and give him/her the advice he needs.

Secondly, many drivers have learned to drive on older vehicles with less driving assist features. However, vehicle technologies have evolved considerably. A training course allows them to be upgraded and use the full potential of new vehicles. A trainer can also easily spot the bad habits and automatisms of drivers and help them fight them.

How should you analyze the performance of your drivers and vehicles if you do not have the tools? How should drivers improve their behavior if they are not coached and don’t get continuous feedback? For several reasons, it is crucial to measure and report the performance and to help the drivers to improve their driving.

 

“For many years, Ahola has been certified for quality (ISO 9001) and environment (ISO 14001), and for this reason we place great emphasis on ensuring that our transports are carried out efficiently and environmentally. It is important for us to keep track of the fleet and driver performance by monitoring and reporting fuel consumption and emissions. Since we have screens in our vehicles, we can also impact the driving behaviour of the...

Before starting, we advise you to go through a phase of analysis and thinking to consider all the stakes of the project. Define objectives that explain why the approach is specific to your business. What are the objectives? Cost control, protection of the environment, getting the CO2 label? These global objectives are important because they will allow you to define priorities throughout the project and to explain the reasons of the project to your employees.

Then, an audit before the launch of the project is essential. It does not necessarily have to contain thousands of data, but you need to do an inventory to simply know where you are going and to be able to measure and analyze your progress. At a minimum, this audit must include fuel consumption and cost, fleet CO2 emissions...

If you are considering this kind of project for your business, it is important to step back and tackle it in a comprehensive manner. This project does not only concern drivers. It is a project that will impact many of the departments and services in the company.

Naturally the financial department will be involved (after all, this is a project to save fuel) as well as the fleet management department as the project may lead to investments in vehicles with less impact of the environment. The transport management department plays a key role to make sure unnecessary kilometres and empty kilometres are avoided and that delivery plans are well planned and not too tight.

“I had 3 months to prove that we could reduce fuel consumption. Now it seems like we will...

The principles of eco-driving seem simple enough at first glance. But when it comes to managing the project in a company with a large
fleet of vehicles, there are several obstacles and challenges ahead that need to be mitigated and controlled.

 

CHALLENGE 1: ENGAGEMENT OF THE EMPLOYEES 

One of the first difficulties will be to get the engagement of the employees! Resistance to changes is quite common. Drivers often think this type of training is unnecessary and you will probably hear statements such as ”You will not teach me how to drive” or ”Ecodriving it is for old people”.
A typical comment is that “they have no choice”.

In Vehco's survey where 64 transport companies were interviewed, it turned out that 28% of the carriers believe that training is the most important factor when it comes to succeeding in the implementation of a fleet management project. It seems obvious that users must have the knowledge to be able to handle their new solution.
