Because every drop is precious

Fuel consumption plays a decisive role when it comes to economic success. That's why for many years now, we have been working at full speed on the development of particularly sustainable transportation solutions at Mercedes-Benz Trucks, solutions that will both benefit your finances and contribute to lower CO2 emissions.

At Mercedes-Benz Trucks this philosophy has a name: BlueTecEco. As a package of measures oriented towards efficient transport solutions, BlueTecEco acts wherever it is possible to save fuel in daily operation. That is why in addition to a vehicle configuration perfectly suited to each application and state-of-the-art technology such as the fuel-saving BlueTec® 5 engines and the engine start/stop system* which reduce fuel consumption even further, BlueTecEco also includes extensive services. Because test drives have shown that 40 percent of all fuel consumption depends on external factors such as style of driving, traffic conditions, vehicle configuration, topography and maintenance.

Theoretical matters need to be considered when maximising the potential of Axor. By offering individual consultation, training, seminars, practice-oriented courses and services such as FleetBoard®, Mercedes-Benz Trucks will share a wealth of experience with you. But that's not all. As training providers, we enable you – as our partner – to use the potential of Mercedes-Benz Trucks effectively, economically and in an environmentally compatible manner. Thanks to the ongoing optimisation of our trucks, we have lowered fuel consumption by up to 30% over the past 40 years. And in the future we will continue to do everything to further reduce fuel consumption by implementing application-based solutions.
