Energy- and environmental savings Lerum Frakt BA

Lerum Freight BA will adapt some of the lessons learned in the EU project RECODRIVE, in which Western Norway Research Institute was one of the partners, to look for improvements in fleet management in order to achieve fuel savings, CO2 reduction and a decrease in the total transport volume.

Fleet management includes incorporating optimal practices in the following areas:

  1. purchasing of trucks,
  2. itinerary improvements,
  3. maintenance,
  4. driver training and
  5. logistics optimization.

The project is aimed at showing how freight companies can reduce institutional, practical and knowledge barriers related to adopting more environmentally benign transport solutions. The goal is that experiences during the project period could be  drawn upon by other freight transport companies.
