More and more haulage companies are realising that if you want to keep up with the competition, you need to put the environment and fuel consumption at the top of your agenda. Because fuel, and how efficiently it is used, has a major impact on the profitability of your company. As a result, we at Mercedes-Benz are working hard to optimise our trucks. And on implementing fuel-reducing solutions – such as our BlueTecEco pack of measures. Alongside providing efficient vehicle solutions for every application, we are also offering our customers a comprehensive advice and training portfolio – because every litre of fuel saved not only increases the efficiency of your fleet but helps to protect the environment at the same time. BlueTecEco improves your balance sheet in many different ways:
Innovative technical measures, such as the BlueTec® 5 engines, the Mercedes PowerShift automated transmission and optimised aerodynamics ensure further reductions in fuel consumption in the Actros, all while maintaining consistently high transport performance.
By providing training courses, seminars and advice, we can help you to reduce your fuel consumption even further. Because test drives have shown that external factors, such as driving style, traffic conditions, the vehicle configuration, the topography and maintenance, are responsible for 40 % of fuel consumption. Already running for several years now, our BlueTecEco driver training has been showing drivers and haulage companies how to get even more out of every litre of diesel. And the internet-based Fleetboard® telematics system is designed to increase the efficiency of your fleet: driving and consumption analyses help you to exploit the savings potential of your Actros to the full – for greater economy and a better environment. See for yourself just what all our fuel-saving measures combined can achieve.
