How does your fleet perform against  Irish, UK or EU benchmarks? ECOfleet provides insight and benchmarks based on measured performance from our anonymised database, UK or EU benchmarks.


When customers ask for proof of  your fleet’s environmental or energy performance e.g. for their  ISO50001 systems: ECOfleet give you an independent certificate of performance, that protects your commercially sensitive data.


We train you, support your team, measure and verify your fuel performance savings (quarterly).  Enprova reward those savings with a bonus, paid annually.

I would point out that they would see saving in two ways, Reduction in their weekly diesel cost plus carbon footprint and on top of all that they would reserve the yearly rebate on their improvement on the previous year.



We have had fuel savings of 433,769 litres to date and this has become a big interest with our existing customers.


We are now operating with a new fleet spec which is specific to our needs for chilled delivery and fuel economy. Zellwood are focusing on alternative fuel sources and are currently trailing a vehicle running on HVO (Hydrated Vegetable Oil) on a trail bases with the view to rolling it out to the entire fleet over the coming months. This will have a 90% reduction in carbon emission compared with diesel. Plus we will be introducing an electric rigid to the fleet over the coming weeks. Furthermore we have rolled out Aptarus Online Training to all employees to improve driver’s road safety awareness as well as fuel economy. The online training has a big focus on safety with drivers being assigned refresher training if he / she has a recurring problem with driver safety e.g. anticipation, harsh braking”
