Résumé

Eco driving is often cited as a good practice to reduce fuel consumption by 10% to 20% and thus contributes to reduce CO2 emissions. As among other sectors, freight transportation by truck is one of the major contributors to CO2 emissions with 14% of the grand total in France. However, assessing its potential in actual operations is not easy and to our best knowledge has never been done before. In this research, done in collaboration with a logistics services provider operating its own fleet, we defined a measurement protocol and tested several incentives to motivate truck drivers in order to reduce fuel consumption. By reporting the eco driving strategy implemented in 3 different operational areas, this research has enabled us to understand the benefits of the actions to reach emissions reduction up to 4,2%. To complement other researches that aim to bring a theoretical analysis of the relation ship between the consump tion and its impacting factors, this research is anchored in practice. This has enabled us to understand the need to evaluate the driving behaviour depending on the characteristics of the tour and the area. And help us to conceive a sustainable system of i ncentives for drivers.
