Eco Stars, the fleet recognition scheme, is joining forces with Route Monkey to offer route optimisation and scheduling systems.
Eco Stars provides advice to commercial fleets on how to reduce environmental impact, achieve financial savings and gain positive recognition.
Through its partnership with Route Monkey, announced at the Freight in the City expo on Tuesday, Eco Stars members can now access route optimisation and scheduling solutions, which it claims can reduce fleet costs by up to 20 per cent.
Ann Beddoes of Barnsley Metropolitan Council, the scheme manager for Eco Stars, said: “We are delighted to be working with Route Monkey – a company whose services align perfectly with our objectives – and we continue to seek out partnerships with organisations to enhance the benefits of the scheme for our members.”
Colin Ferguson, CEO of Route Monkey, said: “Eco Stars is a fantastic initiative that has a fantastic membership of public and private sector fleets. By working closely together with ECO Stars we can deliver even greater efficiency savings for these members.”
Eco Stars was created in 2009 to help fleet operators in South Yorkshire to improve their efficiency, reduce fuel use and harmful emissions. Building on that success, Eco Stars has expanded to 18 schemes across the UK, with more in the pipeline. It is open to fleets of all sizes and configurations.
