ADT: Fleet Switch Will Trim Fuel Costs $5.3 Million
With plans to order a total of 3,000 Transit Connects within the next six months, ADT, a Tyco International company, will replace nearly half of its N.A. fleet.
The larger commercial vans being replaced – which represented 95 percent of ADT’s total fleet – resulted in an annual fuel cost of $30 million, according to David Wade, ADT Supply Chain and Fleet Group director. The Transit Connect’s fuel economy has a rating of 22 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway. Replacing 3,000 large vans with the Transit Connect would save ADT approximately $5.3 million per year.
Replacing larger vehicles is part of ADT’s company-wide program to save expenses, increase fuel efficiency and decrease greenhouse gas emissions. The initiative also conforms with “Vital World” – Tyco International’s global program to create a greener future.
Ford is planning an electric version of the Transit Connect.
