Research by Allison Transmission has revealed that many commercial vehicle fleets could cut their fuel consumption by requesting different axle ratios to those routinely offered on new vehicles. This simple change to a truck’s specification costs nothing yet can significantly reduce running costs and carbon emissions. Savings will likely be most significant on duty cycles with frequent stop-starts around town or on minor rural roads.
Allison Transmission will retrofit FuelSense 2.0 software to 493 Dennis Eagle and Mercedes-Benz Econic trucks for leading waste management company Biffa.
Waste management specialist Biffa has selected EPIC Media Group to supply and fit vehicle livery on over 300 vehicles new fleet servicing Cornwall Council’s Waste and Recycling Collection, Street and Public Open Space Cleansing Services Contract.
