Goodyear Dunlop organized on January 25th a symposium on ‘Driving Efficiency in Europe’s Road Freight Sector’. 170 of the continent’s top commercial fleet representatives, industry leaders and transportation policy makers attend a one-day symposium in Brussels designed to open a wider debate on increased demand for more fuel efficiency from Euro’s road freight sector. The symposium was built on a newly introduced report called “Driving fleet fuel efficiency: The Road to 2020“. The report predicts how fleets will cope with cutting CO2 and increasing fuel efficiency in an era of rising fuel costs and environmental legislation.
The report can be downloaded from the site fleet-fuel-efficiency.eu that also provides a fuel calculator enabling fleet managers to make the right investment decisions and cut their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
PART was represented by Gandert Van Raemdonck who gave a presentation in workshop 3: best practice in reducing fuel consumption, about his research of trailer aerodynamics and the obtained results.
