Zenith Hygiene Group is saving almost 600 tonnes of CO2 a year with TomTom fleet management technology, enabled by Vodafone, according to independent research.
The study, undertaken by global sustainability consultancy Environmental Resources Management (ERM), was commissioned by Vodafone, whose world-leading machine-to-machine services support TomTom Business Solutions.
Zenith's estimated 597-tonne saving equates to a 28 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions across its 61-strong lorry fleet – equivalent to 1,000 return lorry trips between London and Manchester.
“In financial terms, it is estimated that if Zenith Hygiene continues at the current level of fuel efficiency, it could save in the region of £218,000 per year on fuel costs, with a further potential £50,000 on reduced maintenance costs” ERM reported.
These financial savings resulted in return on investment being realised by the cleaning and hygiene specialist within just three months. Zenith achieved this with TomTom's tracking, navigation and ecoPLUS devices installed across its vehicle fleet. The vehicles use Vodafone's global machine-to-machine services which enable businesses to connect, monitor and manage devices across the world.
The solution has enabled Zenith to track vehicle usage and fuel consumption, while managers and drivers alike have been given an insight into performance behind the wheel. As a result they have been able to minimise incidents of speeding and harsh driving and promote a greener, safer and more efficient fleet operation.
“Vodafone is making it easier for businesses to cut costs and reduce their environmental impact” said Erik Brenneis, Head of Vodafone Global M2M.
“Mobile technology is enabling people to adopt lower carbon ways of operating, living and working. Together with TomTom we have enabled firms all over the world to save hundreds of thousands of pounds annually. The efficiency gains and costs savings made by Zenith provide compelling evidence for business investment in advanced fleet management technology”
Giles Margerison, director UK and Ireland, TomTom Business Solutions, added: “Business benchmarking and effective change management have been key ingredients in Zenith's success. TomTom works closely with all its business customers to ensure they maximise the potential of their fleet management technology and optimise operational efficiency”
