Trakm8 drives better driver behaviour for Altrad Services

Altrad Services' fleet benefiting from Trakm8's telematics

 Altrad Services has seen a rastic improvement in driver performance since it has been using Trakm8's telematics services.

The company is using vehicle tracking, driver behaviour scoring and vehicle health alerts.

With the various telematic offerings it has seen is total fleet mileage reduced by 1.5 million miles, it has halved its accident rate and its average driver scores have increased from 68% to 97%.

The connectedcare vehicle health alerts have helped to prevent breakdowns and costly repairs, saving the company an estimated £20,000 per year.

Matthew Hammond, head of fleet, plant and equipment at Altrad Services, said: “We are absolutely astounded by the results we have achieved.

“Trakm8 has proved to be an invaluable part of our operations and has saved us a lot of money.

“Every driver of every Altrad vehicle is an ambassador for our business and our brand, which is built on excellence and safety.

“With over 1,000 drivers we needed a solution that would enable us to identify higher risk drivers and work them to reduce that risk. “

Altrad Services employs 6,500 people, which operate across sectors including oil and gas, power generation, petrochemical, nuclear and infrastructure.

Its return on investment to due to lower fuel expenditure has increased, with its diesel bill being reduced by 11%.

Around 300 of its light commercial vehicles (LCVs) have had Trakm8's telematics installed, with more vehicles to have its telematics services implemented in the coming months.

“The benefits of telematics reach much further than its intended purpose of driver management.

“The data capture and reporting on the vehicle status has also allowed us to identify potential costly issues with the fleet before they become costly repairs. In fact, we are able to identify many issues even before the vehicle flags them to the driver.”

Altrad Services was recently shortlisted for Commercial Fleet's 'Most improved fleet of the year'.
