Southampton, UK. March 2, 2015 — An average heavy goods vehicle in the UK consumes £42,000 (€57,750) of fuel annually in the UK, and haulage companies operate on extremely tight margins, usually between 1-3%. This means fuel savings can have a huge effect on their profitability.
There are a number of products already on the market to improve the efficiency of haulage vehicles, writes Dr Angus Webb of Dynamon, a company spinning out of the University of Southampton. However, he reports that a lack of evidence of the fuel savings achieved has limited their uptake.
