Bunzl reduces crashes by 89% through GreenRoad investment

10 March 2011

Specialist distribution group Bunzl is rolling out Driving for Better Business campaign partner GreenRoad’s safe driving programme across the business following a successful implementation within its healthcare division.

Since February 2010, using GreenRoad’s service, Bunzl Healthcare has seen:

  • Driver risk drop 63%.
  • Crash rate reduce by 89%.
  • Fuel consumption drop by 6%.

Based on these results, GreenRoad is now being rolled out to LCVs and HGVs in Bunzl’s retail, catering supplies and Greenham divisions.

“We are impressed by the reduction in accidents since GreenRoad’s service went live. During the first three months we did not have a single accident,” said Mark Moore, group transport manager at Bunzl Healthcare.

“We calculate that GreenRoad’s service started delivering an ROI after just three months and that’s not counting long-term benefits such as a reduction in wear and tear and the renewed drivers’ pride in their vehicles including washing them every day. This minor investment is paying dividends.”

GreenRoad 360 is also changing the relationship between depot managers and the drivers.

Mr Moore said, “Thanks to the information available through GreenRoad depot managers are engaging more closely with drivers. An improved understanding of what is happening out on the road means safety is top of the agenda.”
