Trimming the fuel bill
Filling up fewer times means we save our
A huge part of Shamrock Group’s business is door-to-door delivery service. This takes time and energy. We are committed to such an investment to ensure our customers’ satisfaction. What we strive for is how to do it using less energy.
Rather than to use fuel or electricity to keep product frozen during deliveries, the Shamrock Group conserves energy by using glycol-refrigerated cold plates within most of its delivery trucks. Electricity is used only during non-delivery hours to rejuvenate the freezers.
The Shamrock Group has developed a monitoring system that can track how delivery personnel are driving — how fast, how quickly they accelerate, decelerate, etc. Not only does this system monitor driver safety, it also provides data regarding fuel efficiency.
All trucks are turned off during delivery to conserve fuel.
Currently, the company is developing a delivery routing process that increases the amount of right-hand turns, versus left turns, to further enhance fuel efficiency.
All tires are checked daily on delivery fleet vehicles to ensure optimum fuel efficiency.
