Pallet delivery firm uses tracking to drive down maintenance costs
The firm promotes efficient driving in its fleet which can reduce the wear and tear on vehicle components including tyres, the engine and gearbox. Reducing harsh acceleration, braking and cornering means less stress on the vehicle and a dramatic reduction of maintenance costs.
Ravi Sandu from Acclaim Pallet Express said: ‘Monitoring drivers does make a difference to maintenance costs. We have achieved this through simply monitoring speeding and what routes the drivers take, ensuring the most efficient driving style and routes are achieved.’
John Watkins, Trakm8 chief executive, said: ‘Put together, fuel and maintenance costs are probably the two largest overheads affecting fleets at the moment. Our SWIFT products help to reduce these by monitoring driver behaviour. Promoting efficient and economical driving helps to reduce not only fuel bills, but maintenance costs as well.’For more of the latest industry news, click here.
