Home » Lightfoot – in-cab driver guidance system
- July 13, 2021
We use the ‘Lightfoot’ in-cab technology system across our fleet of 34 vehicles which has led to a reduction in fuel bills, on-road accidents and vehicle damage.
We recorded an MPG increase of 6.1%, savings of fuel expenses of circa 10% and a fall in insurance premiums of 20%.
Since we first had the devices installed all our drivers’ scores have improved significantly. So far, we have seen a 92% reduction in driving penalties, which corelates almost exactly with percentage falls in sudden braking, harsh cornering and aggressive acceleration.
Now, our drivers regularly attain Lightfoot’s ‘Elite Driver’ standard, which is the point where we see the best savings, and our drivers unlock access to great prizes. By becoming more mindful, our team are safer on the roads, resulting in fewer accidents and reduced claims.
Reducing our fleet’s carbon footprint, NOx particulates and CO2 emissions was an influence in our decision to install Lightfoot across our fleet.
With Lightfoot’s in-cab technology and the app, our drivers have the opportunity to be personally and routinely rewarded for carrying out their daily duties. That really resonates with our team and has helped to reinforce a strong sense of community within the company, as well as healthy competition between colleagues.
That in turn has enhanced staff wellbeing at the same time as slashing fuel costs and greenhouse emissions, a core aspect of our company values.
