Breda, 2 June 2015 – Further reduction of overall fuel consumption is high on the agenda for the management of Amerongen Kamphuis. With that in mind, over the past year, the driving behaviour of the 110 drivers on a total of 90 trucks has been closely analysed. For the purposes of the analysis, Amerongen Kamphuis worked closely with Fleet Consultancy by Scania. The fact that Amerongen Kamphuis operates a mixed fleet of trucks represented no restriction for the programme.

Amerongen Kamphuis is working towards permanent behaviour change and
reduced fuel consumption with Fleet Consultancy by Scania.

A precondition for the success of Fleet Consultancy by Scania was support for the programme throughout the organisation. After all, it calls upon drivers to change their behaviour. Thanks to Fleet Consultancy, drivers become even more aware of their own driving behaviour. A Scania coach offered the drivers tips and advice on positive driving behaviour change, which is often a question of minor details. Every day, via an online Driver Coaching Portal, the drivers can review their last trip or play “Excellence the Game”. This game encourages competition between drivers and makes economical driving a permanent challenge. Access to the Internet (anywhere in the world) is all that is needed. Fleet Consultancy at Amerongen Kamphuis was implemented using the FMS systems already on board, linked to the Scania Driver Coaching Portaal. The biggest advantage of this configuration was that it required no investments in hardware, or alterations to the vehicles. As a result, coaching could be offered on the basis of all the data available from the drivers’ reports.

Scania also examined internal training at Amerongen Kamphuis. The aim is that following the Fleet Consultancy by Scania programme, Amerongen Kamphuis will be able to operate the principles of the programme independently, and itself carry on along the same lines.
