Xwift employs a full-time claims manager and 2 prevention advisors (levels 2 and 3). In consultation, they draw up a periodic action plan to make drivers aware of safety issues. Our accidents at fault have been reduced by 15% over the last four years.
Since 2021, Xwift has in-house accredited instructors for Code 95 Competency. We provide our truck drivers with tailor-made training on load safety, driving and resting times, ergonomics, safety in and around the vehicle, etc.
When purchasing vans and trucks, the emphasis is on safety. Together with our suppliers and the drivers (via the CPBW) we look at the latest developments. In this way, our drivers can do their job in the safest possible environment.
Each Xwift truck is equipped with four cameras: a front camera, a rear camera, a camera in the cargo space and a blind-spot camera. In addition to the mirrors, the camera images can be consulted by the drivers so that they have a better view of the environment, both while driving and during maneuvers. The images are recorded 24/7 and are used in case of fuel theft, accidents, traffic aggression, and so on.
The best way to save CO2 is of course not to move. Since the corona period, Xwift has a teleworking policy in which dozens of employees work from home at least 2 days a week.
Xwift has achieved a fuel saving of 6% since 2018. Every day, an internal eco-drive coach coaches a colleague and in this course some important aspects are explained in function of fuel savings: idling, coasting, emergency braking procedure and shifting in the green zone. When drivers can present good eco-drive scores and positive accident statistics they are eligible for a quarterly bonus and a mobility bonus. They can convert these into equipment for their truck, an e-bike, a company car, a payout, etc.
Current tax measures are pushing companies towards the PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) or FEV (Full Electric Vehicle) commercial vehicles. However, Xwift has had PHEVs in its fleet since 2018. Our goal is to have only FEVs in our commercial vehicle fleet by 2027.
By 2021, Xwift has installed 264 solar panels on the company premises. These solar panels cover an area of 550 square meters and will provide 102,000 kWh of green energy annually. 100% of the generated power will be consumed by Xwift itself.
Xwift's transport fleet consists of 75 percent of the Euro 6 emission standard and 25 percent of the Euro 5 emission standard. Xwift therefore has no vehicles in the fleet with the Euro 4 emission standard or lower.
"Viral Change" : Xwift's eco policy is contagious. There is "eagerness" to work together for a nicer, more environmentally friendly world. For example, starting drivers already receive eco-drive coaching in their first working week and are thus drawn into the Xwift eco story.
