DAF was ultimately awarded not only for their Euro 6 design and application but also for their interactive Driver Performance Assistant programme, which provides drivers with real-time feedback as to the most cost and fuel efficient driving techniques.
DAF Trucks managing director Ray Ashworth who accepted the award said: “We are delighted that our efforts towards providing the highest levels of fuel efficiency and reliability for our customers has been recognised. Our Euro 6 engine design and driver-focused performance reporting enable fleets to dramatically improve their emission performance as well as lower their overall costs.”
The GreenFleet Awards are held annually to acknowledge those individuals and organisations which work hardest to reduce the environmental impact of fleet transport through innovation. Each category is judged by a panel comprising industry experts, consultants and GreenFleet magazines editorial team.
