Worldwide freight carrier FedEx is a household name and runs one of the largest vehicle fleets on the planet.  The Memphis, Tennessee based company has also long been an expert in the process of maximizing efficiency in their entire shipping process.

Fuel savings have been a part of their search for efficiency.

In fact, FedEx has long been at the forefront, among shipping fleets, in purchasing the most fuel efficient vehicles for the task at hand and at developing further fuel efficient systems.

Now they are tackling one of the most potentially rewarding means of achieving  a more fuel efficient fleet.

Driver behavior.

We call it Ecodriving.

Getting where you want to go, in the time you need to get there, while using less fuel, producing less pollution and being safer.

All at the same time.

It is one of those rare win, win, win scenarios.

FedEx knows it.

And at Ecodriving Solutions, so do we. 

FedEx has a basic but effective approach – accelerate with moderation, brake with moderation, avoid idling, keep an even velocity, and use air conditioning judiciously.

Sounds easy.  It is.  If you know the best time to put these elements into action.

At Ecodriving Solutions we know exactly when to put those elements into action, and which environmental affects give us the opportunity to capitalize on these techniques to the fullest.

Because specializing in Ecodriving programs for large fleets is what we do.
