Clugston Distribution Services, a warehousing and logistics specialist, is planning to fit CMS Supatrak’s EcoTrak fuel-saving technology throughout its 70-vehicle fleet by mid-2012, and is reported to be expecting savings of up to £50 per vehicle per week, as well as other benefits such as a reduction in emissions.

The EcoTrak system monitors and records key driver performance indicators in real time, including fuel consumption, speed, engine revs, engine load, idling time and time spent in cruise control.

The EcoTrak solution produces an overall key performance indicator list for each vehicle, which allows Clugston to produce benchmark scores for each of its drivers. Using these as the basis, it can work with them to improve their performance.

Alongside the basic system, CMS SupaTrak has also supplied 20 of its Safer Driving Assistants to provide Clugston’s drivers with real-time in cab alerts about their driving style.

According to general manager David Heath: "Fuel costs account for approximately 35 per cent of all costs incurred for businesses in the transport industry. It is therefore essential we work as hard as we can to improve fuel efficiency."
