Eco Stars and Route Monkey form commercial partnership

Published:  29 October, 2015

The fleet recognition scheme Eco Stars is joining forces with Route Monkey to deliver even greater efficiency savings for transport operators.

Eco Stars provides advice to commercial fleets on how to reduce environmental impact, achieve financial savings and gain positive recognition.

Eco Stars' members can now access route optimisation and scheduling solutions, which can reduce fleet costs by up to 20%. Route Monkey's vastly improves on manual transport planning.

Its scheduling technology eliminates unnecessary fleet mileage and improves vehicle usage, helping reduce costs and substantially cut carbon emissions. Its algorithms can also identify where and how ultra-low carbon vehicles can be used.

Ann Beddoes of Barnsley Metropolitan Council, the scheme manager for Eco Stars, said: ‘We are delighted to be working with Route Monkey – a company whose services align perfectly with Eco Stars' objectives – and we continue to seek out partnerships with organisations to enhance the benefits of the scheme for our members.'

Colin Ferguson, CEO of Route Monkey, said: ‘By working closely with Eco Stars we can deliver even greater efficiency savings for these members.'
