E-zec is delighted to have invested in a pioneering telematics system that will help us to significantly reduce our carbon footprint and allow us to continuously improve the way that we operate our vehicles.
Lightfoot has been installed in each and every one of our 500 ambulances across the UK, which measures live data from the engine, allowing us to clearly identify areas where we can improve fuel efficiency and drive even more safely.
The system aims to achieve a 10% reduction in CO2 emissions, which is equivalent to introducing 52 new EV vehicles into the business. It also aims to reduce road risk by increasing awareness of driving performance and behaviours, which has already seen a reduction of Road Traffic Accidents by a huge 20%.
Ryan, one of our Ambulance Care Assistants, said: “I can definitely see an improvement in the way that I drive through the Lightfoot system. I’m not idling as much, I’m pulling away from junctions and switching gears more smoothly, and it provides me with a daily score for how economically I’ve driven. It’s become a bit of a friendly competition internally too!”
