Postal Delivery in Germany
Understanding the Underlying Factors
Average fuel economy of identical postal vans was distinctly different between depots across Southern Germany. TNG analysed driver and trip data, over several months, and identified that the driving and delivery behaviours accounted for 7% of the difference between the depots.
Changed behaviours and reduced overall fuel consumption by 8% across the region.
Although not measured Road Traffic Accidents were reduced over the period of the trial.
