The transportation and logistics group OY Ahola Transport, is rolling out an additional 150 vehicle computers from Vehco. The key drivers are to save fuel, reduce theenvironmental impact and to increase the road traffic safety.
With this investment, Ahola Transport has a standardized system for the entire fleet. The system has been delivered by Vehco, that Ahola Transport has been cooperating with for many years. The solution coaches the drivers to optimize the driving behavior. The result is lower fuel consumption, a lower environmental impact and safer driving.
» Instead of only measuring and reporting fuel consumption, we measure the factors in driving behavior that directly has an impact on consumption and emissions”, says Quality Manager Birgitta Hatt.
The measurements are compiled in a Green Wheels index, defined by Ahola Transport. The concept Green Wheels is already used by Ahola Transport as a tool in the extensive environmental work that is done in the company. A high index indicates a safe, environmental friendly and economical driving.
“ We look forward to the opportunities the cooperation will offer as the Vehco solution is now implemented in the entire fleet and is integrated with Ahola Transport business solutions. Ahola Transport is at the forefront and has given us important feedback that has helped us to develop our product” says Magnus Orrebrant, CEO, Vehco Group.
Vehicle computers for increased efficiency
The investment of an increased amount of vehicle computers is also a part of the efficiency program that Ahola Transport published during the fall.
“One of the key stones in the program is to make the business more efficient by increased digitalization in the logistical services”, says Jukka Raudasoja, Director of the Road Transportation Business Unit.
With these additional 150 units, Ahola has installed almost 400 Vehco systems in their fleet.
