Red Bull Technology focuses on driver safety with TRACKER
The team is to use the TRACKER Reporter technology to help them reduce carbon emissions, manage fuel usage, control costs and focus on staff safety.
Based in Milton Keynes, Red Bull Technology is responsible for designing and manufacturing the team's Formula One cars, to their race-winning standard, with a staff of more than 500 across several sites. With a 16-strong fleet, Red Bull Technology commercial vehicles are used to transport staff to meetings, deliver material, collect car components and transport car parts to the race circuits.
TRACKER Reporter uses a reporting system that allows fleet managers to easily view fuel usage per vehicle and driver behaviour to deliver considerable business benefits. Reports such as maintenance scheduling, for example, provide automatic alerts when servicing is due on vehicles, ensuring they maintain a safe, more fuel efficient fleet and, most importantly, are meeting their duty of care obligations.
'Staff welfare and safety is of paramount importance to us – that includes our Formula One drivers, as well as our van and other business drivers across the company,' said Ed Porter, transport manager for Red Bull Technology. 'Time is of the essence in this business, but we fully appreciate that, to be successful, the most important thing is that everyone gets to the finish safely. This not only applies to our race drivers, but also to our business drivers, whether they are driving to an important meeting with a sponsor or delivering a critical component to our wind tunnel.
'TRACKER Reporter has been installed across our fleet and delivers everything we need to know to monitor driver behaviour, fuel efficiency and the status of our vehicles. This plays a vital part in our commitment to staff well-being, efficient fleet management and the ongoing success of the business.'
