Many transport operators see important fuel savings in combination with driver training – but find it difficult to sustain them. To carry on saving fuel month after month requires continuous feedback and coaching. This has required a big investment – up until now. Fuel Advice is a new, subscription based service that combines the latest resources with access to a fuel advisor. This means operators can afford regular fuel coaching for as few or as many vehicles they like – sustaining their fuel savings indefinitely.
“The combination of Dynafleet and a specialised fuel advisor from Volvo is perfect.’’
“It allows us to concentrate our efforts where they are needed to achieve the optimal results. We’ve found that having one dedicated person on our team to work with this assures the best follow up for drivers and the best results. We believe we can achieve great economic and environmental benefits with Fuel Advice.’’
Gitle Sande is Managing Director of Magnus Nistad Transport in Norway – one of the first customers to use Fuel Advice.
HOW IT WORKS
Once drivers have grasped the necessary fuel saving techniques, the key to long term savings lies in systematic follow-up. This is where Fuel Advice comes in with personal analysis in the form of a report for each vehicle with a subscription. To make it work the operator needs to appoint a Fuel Champion: somebody who can review the reports from Fuel Advice and pass on the feedback to the relevant drivers. If the operator gets stuck at any point, the same Volvo expert who wrote the reports can be reached for further support.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
The new service consists of three parts: Fuel Coaching, a Fuel Management Toolbox and Fuel Management Support. Of course, Dynafleet Fuel & Environment is a precondition for gathering the data in the first place.
