The Westwood Automotive ‘black boxes’ provide driver identity, daily activity and location logs, remote vehicle diagnostics and driver performance monitoring. They were installed after a study of the firm’s operations by transport management consultant Fleet Efficiency. Improveline finance director Javier Brage said: ‘We are able to concentrate on what we do best and not worry about running vehicles.’
The firm claims telematics have minimised downtime, increased productivity and improved fleet management efficiency.
It has also helped reduce the insurance premiums by £42,000.
