Logistics specialist Surefreight has made annual savings of £300,000 after using WEBFLEET from TomTom Telematics to transform driver performance.
A six per cent improvement in MPG has seen the firm save £300,000 on fuel, while also reducing insurance claims across its 200-strong truck fleet.
The firm, which makes more than 1,800 deliveries a day from depots in Newry, Heysham and Cardiff, has worked with TomTom reseller partner Fleet Simplicity to implement a driver improvement programme, underpinned by WEBFLEET.
Each driver is scored on key criteria – including idling, speeding, harsh steering and braking, and MPG – with league tables created to highlight performance trends. As a result, idling has been reduced by almost 60 per cent, while incidences of harsh steering and braking have been cut by 48 per cent. By integrating WEBFLEET with on-board security cameras, Surefreight has also been able to reduce insurance claims by proving their drivers are not at fault in 90 per cent of accidents.
‘As a result of the systems we have put in place, the business is in an even stronger position to sustain growth, even in the face of an uncertain economic climate,’ said Maureen McSwiggan, General Manager, Surefreight. ‘We have also been able to reinforce our commitment to driver safety by putting measures in place to safeguard employees from external factors and provide them with the tools needed to improve their own performance.’
Surefreight has also used the Tachograph Manager functionality available in WEBFLEET to help improve compliance with working time regulations. Management can gain real-time visibility into each driver’s remaining driving time per day, week or fortnight. Alerts are provided in case of any potential infringements and tachograph data is downloaded remotely to reduce time spent on administration.
