Telematics overcome driver safety and CO2 emissions challenges

Tracker Reporter is helping David Webster Ltd cut their carbon emissions, manage fuel usage and control operating costs.

The Harlow-based company specialises in street lighting and highways infrastructure installations.

To ensure the company was meeting its duty of care to staff and complying with health and safety, it introduced Tracker Reporter to 123 specific vehicles on its fleet.

Simon Haymen, head of procurement and logistics, said: “Excessive speed increases the odds for an accident, therefore, we started to monitor driver behaviour to pinpoint any staff who were speeding excessively and find out why.

“It also helped us understand how long staff had been on the road and ensure they are taking the correct amount of break time.”

Tracker Reporter uses an intuitive reporting system that allows fleet managers to easily view fuel usage per vehicle and driver behaviour to deliver considerable business benefits.

Reports such as maintenance scheduling, for example, provide automatic alerts when servicing is due on vehicles, helping organisations to maintain a safe, more fuel efficient fleet and most importantly are meeting their duty of care obligations.
