Installed across its fleet of light commercial vehicles and Aspire graduate trainee cars to improve fuel efficiency and cut emissions, the technology has also brought about significant reductions in the frequency of accidents involving the firm’s vehicles.

Ian Thorn, CEF Fleet operations manager, said: “Downtime has decreased from 2.01 days in 2015 to 1.11 days at the end of 2017. That’s a 45% reduction in the amount of time our vehicles are out of action and equates to a significant six-figure annual saving.”
