Corporate fleet optimisation in Manchester (TfGM)

TfGM has taken numerous steps to reduce the energy consumption and carbon emissions of its fleet of around 150 technical vehicles used by staff looking after the public transport network facilities. TfGM has implemented different actions to optimise fleet use.

The procurement of software to track the vehicles and monitor their consumption led to 15% fuel cost savings with no training but only communication campaigns. The telematics system is a logger installed in the vehicles. This enables the fleet team to instantly view fuel and driving data. The system has been used to determine which vehicles were the most inefficient and polluting and how frequently vehicles were utilised. A decision was taken to get rid of some vehicles which had the highest costs and emissions, based on the data available.
