Acorn Mobility Services has installed a new driver performance platform across its fleet of 136 vehicles in a bid to cut its carbon footprint.
Lightfoot’s unique in-cab technology is able to show drivers how efficiently they are driving by means of a device connected to the vehicle.
Acorn said that that upgrading its fleet to hybrid or electric vehicles would have been too expensive at the moment and that it wanted a more immediate alternative solution.
Pete Hodgson, UK & European fleet/transport manager for Acorn Mobility Service Ltd, said: “Choosing Lightfoot was an absolute no-brainer; there is real beauty in its simplicity.
“By engaging drivers in a fun and rewarding way, we have seen huge benefits, both to the business and our drivers.”
He added: “Like us, Lightfoot operates at the cutting edge of their industry and share many of the same customer-first values that we do. Working with them has been, and continues to be, a real pleasure.”
Lightfoot’s Founder and CEO, Mark Roberts, added: “Acorn Mobility’s drivers have really embraced Lightfoot, adopting our inter-league function, which enables drivers from different regions to compete and see who’s the most efficient.
“In the trial phase we saw 81% of drivers hitting our Elite Driver standard and I’m delighted to see the continuing, positive impact that this has had for the business.”
