FTA Van Excellence scheme offers members GreenRoad discount

Fleet news logo

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has announced that it is offering its members an exclusive 10% discount on GreenRoad, enabling its members to achieve faster ROI with enhanced safety and reduced fuel consumption.

GreenRoad gives drivers instant feedback on their performance using green-amber-red LEDs on the dashboard. Using proprietary technology, GreenRoad analyses the driving and the lights indicate the severity of each manoeuvre, for example speeding, braking, acceleration, lane-handling and turning.

GreenRoad says a typical customer can expect up to a 10% reduction in fuel consumption and emissions as well as a 50% reduction in collision costs. Further claimed benefits include reduced vehicle wear and tear and reduced insurance premiums.

Van Excellence is an industry-led initiative to raise standards and improve the image of the UK’s van sector and includes a tough accreditation system and a strict code of practice, and is backed by many household names.

The launch of Van Excellence in 2010 has been widely welcomed in the industry, and many businesses have joined the scheme. Van Excellence is a standard set by van operators for use by van operators, sharing and formalising working practices already used by leading companies in the sector.

Mark Cartwright, FTA’s head of vans and light commercial vehicles, said: "GreenRoad’s support continues to play an important contribution in reaching our goals.

“Its offer of a reduced cost service to our members will only serve to encourage additional improvements to the high operating standards of our members’ fleets, whilst reducing their operating costs.”
