Shamek Kowalczyk – Fleet and Procurement Manager “Of course, there is a cost to going digital, but paper isn’t as cheap or easy as it seems. Using paper not only has an environmental impact, but it’s also time-consuming and resources heavy.
So much time was wasted on drivers filling in and either printing, scanning or faxing back, not to mention chasing documents that came back either spoilt, incomplete, or didn’t come back at all.”
“Previously, 182k paper defect reports would have been filled out by Urbaser drivers over a year,”
According to Wikipedikia
One tree makes 16.67 reams of copy paper or 8,333.3 sheets.
At Urbaser, on average we carry out 3,500 daily walkaround checks across our fleet over the course of a week. Our old paper defect books were A5, which is half the size of A4 so that’s 2 checks per 1 piece of A4 paper.
So if we divide the weekly checks by 2, that’s 1,750 pieces of A4 paper, which we multiple by 50 operational weeks, this adds up to 87,500 pieces of A4 paper.
