Tennants UK improves fleet efficiency through telematics

Since employing Tracker’s telematics technology Tennants UK has reduced fleet costs and improved delivery times nationwide.

The Nottingham-based company supplies number plate systems, traffic management signs and equipment and reflective sheeting.

Tony Beecroft, commercial director at Tennants UK, said: “We supply throughout the UK but the pressure is constantly on to deliver quickly to our customers irrespective of where they may be.

“If we weren’t prepared to meet customer expectations, our competitors were.

“However, before we partnered with Tracker we didn’t know where our drivers were at any given point in time and in turn, we were wasting time and money by duplicating their efforts by sending multiple drivers to neighbouring locations to make deliveries.

“Through Tracker’s technology we can now locate our drivers within minutes, accurately despatching them to the next nearest job.

“It also allows us to be highly responsive to customers, extracting data as and when we need it, whether they want an up date on a delivery time or querying delivery costs on invoices.

“The reporting structure also enables us to monitor driver’s timesheets to make sure we are meeting duty of care, as well as obviously better manage staff pay.

“The investment in telematics certainly has paid off and the support we get from Tracker ensures we continually get the best out of the system.”
