Cutting running costs is an essential part of modern business, whether your a 7.5 tonne box van driver, owner driver of a 40 tonne artic, or run a varied fleet of vehicles, the first steps to reducing your overheads is to know exactly what your costs are right now. Whilst this sounds obvious you would be surprised at how many professional truck operators and drivers can only guess at how much they spend per month per vehicle on maintenance, tyres, insurance and crucially, fuel.
Setting a target:
As a starting point, aim to cut your fuel costs by 5%.
Even by reducing fuel spend by this small amount could show a saving
of £1,000 + each year on fuel for many haulage businesses.
A saving that will directly increase the bottom-line profit margin.
