Across rail, haulage, bus and coach companies, the pressure is on to improve engine efficiency and reduce fuel costs and choosing the right lubricant can help

Keep your business running smoothly – maximise efficiency, boost productivity, reduce downtime

Fleet and commercial transport businesses are under increasing pressure to do more with less and by maintaining vehicle engines with the right lubricant, it is possible to reduce unplanned downtime, improve productivity and ultimately reduce total cost of ownership (TCO).

When it comes to keeping your fleet moving, lubricants are often overlooked. One of the key barriers to choosing the right lubricant is a lack of training and understanding about the specific lubrication needs for different engines. Different original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have defined minimum requirements for lubricants and greases but not all products will meet these standards.
