Greggs plc is the largest bakery chain in the United Kingdom, with 1,671 outlets. It specialises in savoury products such as pasties, sausage rolls and sandwiches and sweet items including doughnuts and vanilla slices. Greggs of Scotland’s Edinburgh fleet joined the ECO Stars Edinburgh scheme in 2011. They achieved a highly creditable rating of four stars at their first assessment and have followed up with the maximum five stars rating by acting on the recommendations of the ECO Stars fleet expert.

The process
Greggs supplied a full fleet listing to the ECO Stars field consultant. Each individual vehicle was assessed along with the overall fleet management operation. The result was a four star rating which was an excellent start and reflected their proactive approach to achieving operational efficiency.

Key recommendations

  • Enhanced driver training and targets
  • Telematics rolled out across whole fleet
