Case study // Biffa cuts its carbon with Ecotrak.

Background

As a market leader in the waste management industry, Biffa’s commitment to corporate responsibility is fundamental to its operation. In recognition of this, Biffa Waste Services has chosen to work with CMS SupaTrak to reduce their fuel costs and lower their vehicle carbon emissions using EcoTrak fuel saving technology. EcoTrak is a driver and vehicle management tool, which can be used to identify individual driver behaviour and trends including real time MPG, green band driving, speed, PTO usage and over revving and highlights areas which are in need of improvement.

The Biffa approach to delivering more

  • Over a period of several months, CMS SupaTrak worked closely with Biffa to deliver a managed trial of the award winning EcoTrak solution in order to demonstrate the actual fuel saving and carbon reducing benefits of the technology
  • The trial comprised several stages, including the initial “benchmarking” stage, whereby the technology was covertly fitted to derive authentic MPG and driver behaviour data. Once this information was gathered, drivers who had been recorded as driving inefficiently could be mentored and trained by SAFED approved driver trainers to improve their driving style and boost their fuel efficiency
  • As carbon emissions directly correlate with fuel usage, the less fuel used results in less carbon being produced
  • The final stage of the trial was a comparison of the key driver management parameters recorded before and again after the driver training. At this point, significant fuel savings were recorded across all vehicles involved and the decision was made to roll EcoTrak out across the fleet.

Jodie Scott, Category Manager at Biffa explains “CMS SupaTrak take a very consultative approach. Their experience working with fleets to reduce their fuel costs and carbon emissions was clear as they guided us through the managed trial process.

The fuel savings achieved since implementing EcoTrak across the fleet are significant, as is the reduction of vehicle carbon emissions, which is reported using the EcoTrak reports.”
