Volvo Trucks – How the Volvo FH with I-Save helps GTO save 11% fuel


The new I-Save represents
a major revolution for us. We’ve cut fuel consumption
by three litres per 100km. This is a reduction of 11%
on the previous model. Time is critical for us. We are always against the clock,
there is no room for error. That means every minute counts. We specialise in express deliveries
all across Europe. We transport
all kinds of fresh produce, but berries are our main market. Our commitment to clients is to deliver their merchandise
in under 35 hours. We use two drivers
to go from our hub in the south to our hub in the north,
and two more drivers take the loads from our northern hub
to the European countries. This enables us to make non-stop deliveries
to the major European destinations. Driving this truck is much quieter, much more comfortable. When it’s time to rest,
we get a much better sleep. Driving is much more relaxed,
that’s the main thing. It’s fantastic. When reaching a deal with a supplier, we’re not just looking for a supplier
but a partner, a traveller. That’s why our fleet is 100% Volvo. They listen, understand our needs
and seek solutions. We work together
to achieve our aims. Fuel consumption is a major factor
when deciding which truck to buy. The new I-Save
is an optimum vehicle for us. It’s comfortable and secure
for our drivers, it’s reliable and its consumption
is very competitive. It’s gratifying to see
the evolution of the trucks, and to see that we can
reduce fuel consumption, because we’re sure
that this is the only way forward.
