Catering butcher improves fleet driver behaviour & business efficiency with Masternaut Connect

The company is using Masternaut Connect for driver behaviour improvements across its fleet of 10 refrigerated transit vans and company cars in a move to reduce speeding, and cut down incidents of harsh braking, acceleration and cornering.

Masternaut provides Price and Fretwell with reports on driver behaviour across the fleet, to identify areas of improvement. This provides Price and Fretwell with the information to better educate drivers on how to improve their driving and road safety in the future. In the three months since installation, the firm has achieved a decrease in harsh driving events in excess of 60% and a 73% reduction in speeding.

Masternaut Connect provides a real-time view of Price and Fretwell’s fleet at any time and also offers advanced routing capabilities, enabling better vehicle utilisation and reduced fuel costs.

Kevin Chappell, general manager, Price and Fretwell commented: “We’re a small team, but Masternaut has helped to make us even more efficient and safe, and has provided us with fuel cost savings, ensuring the system pays for itself.”

Steve Towe, chief operating officer and UK managing director at Masternaut, added: “The benefits of telematics is something that can easily extend beyond large fleets, with SMEs and local businesses like Price and Fretwell also able to reap the rewards. The savings that telematics technology provides can ensure that you invest in other areas of the business, and provide much more than simple vehicle tracking for fleets.”
