Orbis welcomes the first additions to their new fleet

Our new fleet has been custom-designed to visually reflect a range of Orbis services

Here at Orbis we believe that careful, eco-friendly driving not only results in considerable fuel savings, but it can also significantly lower vehicle CO2 emissions. According to the Energy Saving Trust, “Efficient driving is a driving style that reduces fuel bills, cuts carbon emissions and lowers accident rates”

By early 2023, our entire UK fleet of 210 vehicles will have been replaced with lower emission alternatives, all fitted with a new Lightfoot system designed to specifically monitor, educate and encourage eco-friendly driving behaviour. We are very pleased to welcome the first 33 vehicles to the Orbis fleet, all designed to maximise efficiency whilst we deliver our Vacant Property services.

The new vehicles have been chosen for their low CO2 emissions and perform well within EU regulations and UK government standards. As part of our ongoing fleet management process, we are also trialling electric vehicles, where payloads and ranges allow.

Eco-driving has seen a significant reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions

With over 350 Orbis field operatives and a fleet of over 200 vehicles throughout the UK, we continue to focus on our driving style to support our commitments to further reduce fuel, lower CO2 emissions and achieve safe and responsible driving in the communities we operate within daily.

Endorsed by major insurers, Lightfoot offers the following benefits to our fleet management –

  • Significant reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions
  • Users like it and don’t view it as a big brother telemetric system designed to spy and punish
  • System is designed to engage and educate drivers in real-time
  • Drivers are offered prize incentives based on driving improvement
  • Comprehensive reporting analytics across the entire fleet

Vehicles were chosen due to their lower CO2 emissions which conform well within EU regulations

Since trialling the Lightfoot system with our field operatives, we have already seen significant benefits within this short period –

  • An 18.2% average fuel saving per vehicle
  • A 100% reduction in dangerous driving
  • 97% of drivers have achieved an Elite status of eco-driving
  • Over a 3-year period, our approximate CO2 saving will be 1,232 tonnes

Operations Director, Paul Stubbs, said

“We are delighted to take delivery of our initial 30 vehicles this week. These new low-emissions vehicles, all fitted with innovative Lightfoot systems, support our commitment to environmental responsibility and ensure that our drivers are empowered and educated to drive in a safe and more eco-friendly manner”.
