Berendsen has cut carbon emission by more than 2,000 tonnes and reinforced its commitment to driver safety with an integrated telematics and fleet camera solution.
The textile, hygiene and safety solutions specialist has introduced a fleet and driver efficiency programme underpinned by OptiDrive 360, a key feature of the TomTom Telematics WEBFLEET fleet management system. OptiDrive 360 scores and provides feedback to drivers on a range of performance indicators, including fuel consumption, speeding, harsh braking and steering.
In addition, integrated on-board cameras from ICanProve. IT provide full 360° visibility, via WEBFLEET, across its 680-strong mixed fleet. It also helps provide an audit trail and heightened levels of driver support and vehicle security.
“Environmental performance, road risk management and health and safety compliance are paramount for Berendsen and this system has helped ensure our fleet processes are best in class,” said Robert Hitchcock, Berendsen’s Procurement Category Manager – Mobility.
“The results to date have been staggering. By having the tools to monitor and coach our employees to optimise their driving, we have seen significant improvements in their performance behind the wheel. This has translated to a substantial reduction in our carbon footprint with fuel efficiency soaring by nine per cent.”
Berendsen has outsourced the administration of WEBFLEET to TDS (Telematics Data Services Limited). WEBFLEET data is used by TDS to implement employee communication initiatives to help influence driver behaviour and reduce fleet running costs.
Where driving incidents occur, the combined OptiDrive performance data and camera video footage is used to debrief employees and support them with targeted driver training.
The integrated WEBFLEET solution underpins Berendsen’s fleet operation across its four UK business lines – hospitality, healthcare, workwear, and clinical services. The company is now looking to roll the system out across its wider European operations.
