Optimize transportation of equipment

The health and environmental impact of transport can be reduced in various ways. Besides choosing cleaner vehicles, rental companies also organize the transport of their equipment more efficiently.

Suggested actions for rental companies

  • Purchase energy-efficient vehicles that comply with emission standards.
  • Be located close to customers to minimize transport distance.
  • Pack modules efficiently when shipped and erected at the customer’s site.
  • Introduce a maximum operating speed to improve fuel efficiency.
  • Use GPS technology and hand-held computer devices to optimize the driving behaviour, routing, dispatch, and equipment loads.
  • Retrofit vehicles with a Diesel Particulate Filter or other suitable pollution abatement devices to reduce emissions of particulate matter.
