City Link chooses GreenRoad

GreenRoad has announced that City Link has gone live with GreenRoad 360 in 280 vans at 14 depots nationwide.

All depots have seen an improvement in driving skills since GreenRoad started giving drivers feedback on their driving, and the number of potentially hazardous manoeuvers has dropped substantially.

City Link chose GreenRoad because it offers great potential to reduce fuel consumption, road incidents and general wear-and-tear of vehicles, and expects to see a substantial reduction in costs by improving driving habits.

Zurich, one of GreenRoad’s insurance partners introduced City Link and its parent company, Rentokil Initial, to GreenRoad in order to reduce collision claims rate and insurance premiums. In turn, Zurich will gain new insight into City Link’s fleet risk through detailed analysis of driver behaviour.

Zurich aims to help its customers - who also include Iron Mountain - to gain new understanding about risk and safety levels leading to more effective risk management strategies.

"Since launching Zurich Fleet Intelligence (ZFI) in September 2010 we have seen strong interest from a number of our customers who are keen to reduce their collision rates,” explained said Nick List, proposition manager for ZFI.

"ZFI adds an important element to our portfolio of risk engineering solutions, allowing our customers to obtain a dynamic risk assessment of their employees through the driver behaviour data that we obtain from their vehicles.

“This data gives us insight into the possible root causes of these behaviours, which allows us to suggest the appropriate interventions that supplement any other risk management initiatives already in place.”
