Fuel savings

May 12, 2014

Logistics operators could cut their fuel costs by five per cent by teaching their drivers fuel-efficient motoring skills, a new study by Shell reveals. The Fuel Matters 2014 study surveyed more than 200 managers of UK-based operators, and found that 67 per cent singled out improving their drivers’ fuel efficient motoring skills as the most effective way to reduce fuel consumption. However, 46 per cent said they felt powerless to capitalise on the opportunity due to a lack of resources in personnel, funds for driver training and information.
