Fuel-efficient driving can reduce CO2 emission levels by as much as 25%
Hoofddorp, TNT research shows that a single TNT pick up and delivery (PUD) driver can reduce their C02 emissions by as much as 25% by driving more efficiently. As a result fuel consumption and therefore costs can decrease by 25% as well. TNT has therefore launched a global drivers competition to increase awareness amongst the ten-thousands of own drivers and sub-contractors to engage and encourage them to drive both safely and more fuel efficiently. The international competition is called Drive Me Challenge and is part of TNT's comprehensive program to cut emissions, Planet Me. On 12 November 2008, the winners of eleven local Drive Me Challenges will compete in the final for the title of TNT's Best Pick up and Delivery driver of the year 2008 near Milan in Italy.
