Waste management and recycling firm cuts costs for mixed fleet with telematics solution

The waste management and recycling firm runs a fleet of 20 vehicles, ranging from trucks and vans to pickups and cars, and is using the Masternaut Connect telematics system for vehicle tracking, reducing instances of speeding, and improving vehicle utilisation.

The technology provides a real-time view of Chadwicks Recycling’s fleet at any time, giving fleet managers full visibility of all vehicles. This enables it to accurately notify clients when jobs can be carried out, while also giving more control over how its fleet operates. Since implementation, the firm has radically improved efficiency through better vehicle utilisation.

Masternaut Connect is also helping drivers and fleet managers to find the fastest route to customer locations across the UK.

And tailored reports on speeding are providing fleet managers with the tools to educate drivers on how to drive safely and the effect this has on fuel consumption.

Sean Chadwick, managing director, Chadwicks Recycling, commented: “Masternaut Connect has had a huge effect on our business and has allowed us to manage our employees and jobs more efficiently. Our plant equipment is a valuable asset, so we need to plan carefully how it is deployed – with that in mind vehicle utilisation is a key aspect for us. Combined with this, the money that Connect has helped us to save on insurance and fuel costs means that the system pays for itself and, in that respect, it’s been an invaluable addition to our business.”
