This paper analyses how fleet managers could lead environmental management principles into their daily decision-making process.
A case study is given to show how they can turn practices into green vehicles while simultaneously meet the efficiency objectives. They have chosen one of the leader companies of the Spanish food distribution sector (Eroski) to check their methodology. The study covers the introduction of several changes into its fleet management and the implementation of a methodology to solve vehicle routing problems with environmental criteria minimisation*.
