Trakm8 claims that fleets which use its Swift vehicle telematics system and promote efficient driving styles can reduce their maintenance costs, and subsequently reduce vehicle downtime.
Acclaim Pallet Express promote efficient driving in their fleet which can reduce the wear and tear on vehicle components including tyres, the engine and gearbox.
Reducing harsh acceleration, braking and cornering means less stress on the vehicle and a dramatic reduction of maintenance costs.
Ravi Sandu, from Acclaim Pallet Express, said: “Monitoring drivers does make a difference to maintenance costs. We have achieved this through simply monitoring speeding and what routes drivers take, ensuring the most efficient driving style and routes are achieved.”
Trakm8’s Swift vehicle telematics system aims to give fleet managers all the tools they need to promote efficient, and economical, driving amongst their drivers.
John Watkins, Trakm8 chief executive, said: “Put together, fuel and maintenance costs are probably the two largest overheads affecting fleets at the moment. Our Swift products help to reduce these by monitoring driver behaviour. Promoting efficient and economical driving helps to reduce not only fuel bills, but maintenance costs as well.”
