DSV invests in driver-performance monitoring technology

DSV Road Ltd has invested in technology that will enable the global transport and logistics operator to reduce fuel consumption, extend equipment life and cut carbon emissions.

A long-term customer of Navman Wireless, DSV has expanded vehicle tracking across its fleet of 250 HGV’s.

The technology has been enhanced with Navman Wireless’ CANbus Engine Management System, which will enable DSV to identify over-revving, excessive acceleration, harsh braking and other key indicators of less than optimal driver performance.

The decision followed a comprehensive trial of CANbus EMS.

Navman Wireless’ in-cab messaging system, the MDT-860, will enable full two-way communication and report real-time performance statistics to the driver via the heads-up display.

This ‘trainer in the cab’ can help drivers continuously self-evaluate their performance and deliver significant savings.

Dave Smith, Immingham traffic manager for DSV Road Ltd, said: “The data collected will prove extremely valuable as part of our continuing commitment to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions.”

The data will be used in conjunction with DSV’s in-house fuel efficient driving course which has been introduced as part of the Drivers CPC.
