ECO Stars encourages and helps operators of HGVs, buses, coaches and vans to run fleets in the most efficient and green way.
The scheme provides recognition for best operational practices, and guidance for making improvements. The ultimate aim is to reduce fuel consumption which naturally leads to fewer vehicle emissions and has the added benefit of saving money!
Members are awarded an ECO Star rating when they first join – ranging from 1 Star to 5 Stars – based on an assessment of their current operational and environmental performance. One of our ECO Stars team (all industry experts with years of transport experience) rates each individual vehicle and how the fleet is run as a whole.
The ECO Stars assessment is based on six key pillars which make up fleet operational efficiency.
So after a recent visit by one of their representatives, Expert Logistics was awarded 5 stars based on their initial assessment!
But not one to rest on our laurels, we are now working with ECOSTARS on a ‘roadmap’ on how we can maintain and even improve on our fuel ecomomy and carbon footprint.
Now we can boast about being green in more ways than one!
