Reduce consumption. Increase efficiency."

ASSMANN rewards their truck drivers for good driving


Frequent braking, quick acceleration and inefficient routes lead to high fuel consumption. This is true for cars as well as lorries. Improper loading and poor time management also have a negative effect on consumption.

Many factors have to be taken into account when it comes to using a vehicle fleet as effectively as possible. It's easier if you have help: ASSMANN uses the telematics-supported internet service from FleetBoard. As a reward for driving economically, ASSMANN honours its top three lorry drivers each year. This took place recently for 2016. The overall quality of driving was evaluated. There were three main criteria:

  • fuel consumption whilst driving
  • use of brakes whilst driving
  • degree of difficulty

The company awards 0 to 10 points, 10 being the best score. Three drivers had close results and shared the "podium":

1st place: Denis Götz with 9.46
2nd place: Tino Ladewig 9.45
3rd place: Herrmann Wente 9.36

The Director of Route Planning, Markus Gangei, Human Resources Manager Alexander Neudorf and the Technical Director Guido Hübner awarded the certificates to the three drivers. The "Best Professional Driver", Denis Götz, also received a trophy. "FleetBoard motivates our lorry drivers to drive more conscientiously," noted Markus Gangei. "FleetBoard makes it much easier for them to realistically assess their driving. This is a great opportunity, which also has a positive financial effect for ASSMANN
