Almost nine in 10 (88%) fleet industry experts believe that reducing emissions should be a priority, research by Allstar Business Solutions has found.
The fuel management company’s latest white paper – Navigating the Alternatively Fuelled Future – also found 60% of fleet operators believe that transitioning to alternative fuels will cause disruption to their business in the near future.
Paul Holland, MD UK fuel at Fleetcor, said: “We have already seen there has been considerable progress in recent years to establish alternative fuels as viable substitutes for traditional fossil fuels.
“From hybrid and biodiesel, to electric and hydrogen, each alternative fuel has its own merits that deserve to be fully evaluated in assessing sustainable fuels for fleets of the future.”
He added: “It is important that businesses have access to the right information and insight before they commit.
“By talking to experts and specialists, all businesses can ensure they have the guidance and support they need to make the right decisions for the future of their organisation.”
Allstar said its white paper was written in response to demand from its fleet customers to help them gain a better understanding of the impact, opportunities and challenges they may face when introducing alternative fuels into the businesses.
The report details the following considerations:
- Value and cost of alternative fuel vehicles
- Driving fleet evolution in the right direction
- Interoperability, infrastructure and payment.
Allstar Business Solutions will be exhibiting in the Tomorrow’s Fleet Zone – Road to Zero at Fleet Live on October 8-9 at the NEC, Birmingham.
Fleet Live is the leading event for the fleet management community and gives decision-makers the chance to face future challenges and opportunities together with two days of learning, sharing and networking.
