Fleet News industry conference 2003: 'Toolkit' launched for green fleets

Alt Text

A NEW fleet management guide produced by the Government was unveiled by David Jamieson at the Industry Conference.

The Transport Minister chose the Fleet News conference to launch the TransportEnergy BestPractice Green Fleet Management Guide and Toolkit, which is designed to help fleet managers 'understand the basic principles behind fleet management'.

The guide provides information and guidance on current practice in the industry, covering economic and environmental issues with advice on how to improve performance by making basic changes to fleet policies.

Colin Matthews, head of customer services at TransportEnergy, said: 'More and more organisations are proving that green fleet management is good for business and good for the environment. It's no coincidence that green fleets have lower operating costs than their peers and grants are available through TransportEnergy to encourage organisations to clean up sooner.'

TransportEnergy BestPractice has also launched a Fleet Management Toolkit which promises to slash administration for fleets.

The electronic toolkit includes a series of spreadsheets designed to help fleets with data collection and fleet monitoring. Information is also available in the guide and toolkit on fuel prices, vehicle CO2 emissions, Vehicle Excise Duty rates and company car tax.
