Fleet Supplier of the Week: DriveTech
DriveTech has taken the Fleet World Supplier of the Week title for its work to provide fleets with quality driver risk management and training.
Founded in 1990 and now a wholly owned subsidiary of the AA, DriveTech offers wide-ranging services, from fleet risk health checks, licence checking, online assessments and e-learning training modules to full on-road coaching, workshops and bespoke driver days for clients.
The business operates in 95 countries globally and is particularly well-established in the UK, where it trades with a range of leading, blue-chip businesses – both large and small.
This includes Allianz, which recently switched its driver risk management process to DriveTech, in line with its work to protect its 2,600 colleagues who drive with the business.
The partnership has seen Allianz review its entire fleet supply chain with the help of DriveTech’s consultative support, benefiting Allianz’s fleet, health and safety, sales and international teams.
As a result of the work, Allianz’s fleet team now has greater visibility of what’s happening and a large number of tools and systems in place to prevent collisions, keep its people safe and help their overall wellbeing behind the wheel.
Kate Andrews, Allianz senior procurement officer, said: “Restructuring our supply chain took some effort but has definitely proved worthwhile. We now have direct control of our driver risk. We can act quickly to identify and mitigate on-road risk, all to protect our colleagues. We’re absolutely delighted to have DriveTech on board.”
DriveTech is also able to support Allianz and its customers globally, further helping to save lives, cut costs and protect Allianz’s reputation.
DriveTech commented: “Businesses that recognise their real duty of care, that are driven to control costs and have a commitment to road safety and saving lives, turn to DriveTech as a professional and collaborative supplier. DriveTech has the knowledge and resources to help improve driver safety, reduce fleet running costs and ensure compliance with legal obligations and duty of care responsibilities.”
