Albert&Co norme WLTP agroalimentaire


Within the framework of the new WLTP standard (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure), the management of a major food-processing group wanted analyze the financial impact implementing the standard on the Group’s vehicle fleet. The new WLTP is a global driving-cycle standard aimed at measuring fuel consumption and of CO2 and pollutant emissions from light vehicles. Taxation is calculated on the basis of the consumption recorded.

My role involved measuring the impact of the legislative changes in relation to the Group’s existing vehicle fleet (200 vehicles/Annual budget €1M), and the actions that needed to be taken to reduce this impact.

My actions

  • Phase 1: Analyzing the existing portfolio in terms of the full cost per vehicle with the WLTP for the years 2019 and 2020: 
  • - Car Policy
  • - Insurance 
  • - Fixed-price maintenance package
  • - Tire package
  • - Fuel card
  • - Remote toll-payment 
  • - Company car tax and penalties
  • Phase 2: Reviewing the complete purchasing portfolio to achieve maximum savings:
  • - Review of the Car Policy, which had remained unchanged for 10 years, taking into account more environmentally-friendly vehicles (electric and hybrid).
  • - New proposals from current rental companies: overall call for tender
  • - Renegotiating ancillary contracts: Insurance, Maintenance, Tires, etc.

My results

  • Establishment of a new Car Policy: the introduction of gasoline, hybrid and electric vehicles as commercial utility vehicles resulted in annual savings of €57K.
  • The renegotiation of ancillary contracts (insurance/tires/gasoline/toll cards, etc.) resulted in an annual saving of €37K.
  • The financial impact of the WLTP standard was therefore reduced by 72%.

I have a Master’s degree in Purchasing from Sup de Co Montpellier. Before joining Albert & Co, I worked as a product-family purchaser in industrial purchasing for 6 years, in several areas of the automotive industry.
I joined Albert & Co in 2018 as a consultant in order to expand and diversify my professional experience, to discover new sectors and use the skills I had acquired in large organizations to help smaller, less structured organizations.
