Airporter chooses Masternaut

Fleet news logo

Private sector airport transfer organisation Airporter is implementing Masternaut’s telematics to provide real-time vehicle tracking, increase passenger safety, and deliver fuel efficiency savings.

Transporting 100,000 passengers each year with its fleet of 17 Mercedes Executive mini coaches, accurate vehicle tracking is essential to Airporter’s service. Masternaut Connect will ensure that real-time vehicle information can be correctly relayed to customers and ensure they transfer from airport-to-airport on time.

Masternaut’s eco drive module will allow Airporter to see that if its training is successful and where improvements may need to be made in driver behaviour, while reducing fuel consumption and costs.

Tacho fresh provides Airporter with tachograph management that stores, archives and protects instantly-available data, and is mobile compatible. It also gives the ability for the user to remotely download all tachograph and driver data, and provides next-generation digital analysis, helping Airporter remain compliant with government regulations.

Niall McKeever, owner and director at Airporter, said: “We travel 1.5 million kilometres per year and carry more than 100,000 passengers, so passenger safety is something we take very seriously, and we needed a solution that can keep up with the pace.

"We’re the first public transport company in Northern Ireland to implement Masternaut telematics, and believe the company’s offering is the best available on the market.

"Tacho fresh in particular took us by surprise. For us, it ties up the whole logistics management side of Airporter, and it’s great to have one single reporting system as opposed to the time-intensive system we had previously.”
