New guide to help operators save fuel and cut emissions

Tunbridge Wells, UK: FTA’s Logistics Emission Reduction Scheme (LERS) has launched a free guide to help all road operators reduce their use of diesel.

The guide, available on LERS’ website, provides readers with advice taken from industry-leading companies on how to save money and lower emissions by reducing fuel use in their diesels fleets.

Rebecca Kite, environment policy manager at FTA, said: “The average emissions from LERS members are close to 13% lower per vehicle km than the industry average. For the most part, operators have achieved this reduction by using their existing diesel fleets more efficiently, rather than adopting alternatively powered vehicles.

“At FTA, we recognise that not every business is able to transition to alternatively-fuelled vehicles; that is why we have identified from this research six quick wins to reduce fuel use. From reducing empty running and aerodynamics to route optimisation and telematics, there are steps operators of all fleet sizes and budget considerations can take; these techniques also have the potential to dramatically cut fuel bills. Different strategies will be more effective for different types of operations; this guide offers advice on where and when these options are appropriate.”

The guide is available at http://lers.org.uk/home/how-to-reduce-your-emissions

LERS is a free-to-join scheme which helps members record, reduce and report emissions: http://lers.org.uk
