Energy Saving Trust selects TomTom fleet management technology for driver education programme

TomTom fleet management is partnering with Energy Saving Trust in Scotland for a pilot driver education project operated by four public sector organisations in a bid to improve fuel efficiency and emissions levels across their transport operations.

The project will test a combination of TomTom technology and the Energy Saving Trust's Fuel Efficient Driver Training to try to positively influence driver behaviour.

The Energy Saving Trust has partered Vtec Solutions, a provider of TomTom Business solutions, to install TomTom units, including the LINK tracking box and ecoPLUS fuel management and diagnostics device, in 100 single driver-operated vehicles across the four organisations.

Fuel Efficient Driver Training is then provided to drivers and then topped up by using the TomTom technology. The Optidrive indicator enables managers to build an accurate profile of driver behaviour by analysing four key areas of performance - speeding, fuel efficiency, idling and braking - allowing training to be tailored accordingly.

The Energy Saving Trust is also offering interest-free loans of up to £50,000 to businesses in Scotland which invest in technology or equipment aimed at making their transport operations greener. Glazing and steel fabrication specialist Craig & Buchanan has used one such loan in order to install TomTom fleet management technology across its vehicle fleet.
