Fuel efficiency measures for commercial vehicle fleets in the UK 2014

This statistic shows the measures that were being taken by road haulage companies to improve fuel efficiency in 2014, according to a survey conducted for Road Transport Media and Texaco. Improving employees' driving habits was shown to be the most popular option, as half of respondents stated that they had conducted driver training to try and achieve more miles to the gallon and 16 percent said they had introduced fuel economy incentives for drivers. The use of telematics and routing/scheduling technology in vehicles was also a popular measure amongst road haulage companies. Alterations to the vehicles themselves were less favoured.

Supplementary notes

*50% of the sample companies have 5-25 vehicles in the fleet; 25% of the sample have 26-50 vehicles and 25% of the sample have more than 51 vehicles. While this does not follow the pattern of O-licence holders in the UK precisely, it does broadly reflect that 1% of O-licence holders account for 28% of all vehicles specified to O-licences
