Shell offers sustainability training to fleet managers

Fleet news logo

Shell has partnered with the Smart Freight Centre to offer a training programme to help fleet managers cut carbon and costs.

The Smart Transport Manager Training (STMT) programme, which will be initially available as a five-module, four-hour online course, will focus on increasing efficiencies throughout a fleet’s supply chain.

Troy Chapman, vice president, global marketing B2B and OEM lubricants at Shell Lubricant Solutions, said: “Our partnership with Smart Freight Centre is the latest step in our journey toward greater industry collaboration in an attempt to help industries meet the goals of global sustainability legislation.

“When it comes to the transport industry – where emissions are increasingly being placed under the microscope – sustainability begins with fleet managers.

“Recent Frost & Sullivan research shows that 70% of fleets are committed to forwarding sustainability goals, and we believe that STMT can help to provide the platform for them to do so.”

The programme’s modules aim to educate fleet managers on the latest methodologies and technologies offered to transport fleets, providing them with the theoretical knowledge needed, as well as an individualised action plan to help put these ideas into practice.

The modules cover:

  • Fuels and lubricants: How fuel and lubricants choice can influence emissions and costs.  
  • Drivers: How fleets and drivers can change their behaviour to radically reduce emissions, fuel costs and even maintenance requirements.  
  • Vehicles: How fleets can maximise utilisation and minimise emissions by choosing exactly the right vehicle type for the task at hand. 
  • Performance monitoring: How fleets can accurately measure and track their emissions using the right tools and a robust and consistent methodology.  
  • Information technology: How fleets can reduce their environmental impact and overheads using telematics, onboard monitoring and other technologies. 

The rollout of in-person training across the EU and US are set to follow in 2021.

Shell says that, to date, fleet managers that have implemented some of the measures have reported a 5% to 20% fuel efficiency improvement and reduced fleet operating costs.
