Trakm8 signs 1,000 vehicle telematics deal with COLAS CZ

Telematics provider Trakm8 will supply telematics and route optimisation to Czech company, COLAS CZ.

The firm is a member of the French Civil Engineering giant COLAS Group and will install Trakm8 technology in a minimum of 1,000 vehicles and machines over the course of three years.

COLAS CZ is hoping the devices will help it improve the day-to-day management of its assets and reduce fuel consumption.

A variety of devices from Trakm8’s T10 range will be installed into the company’s mixed fleet of cars, construction machinery and trucks.

All of the telematics devices will report into the Trakm8 Asset system which has been specifically designed for the management of plant and machinery. The Trakm8 Asset system will provide the company with GPS positions within certain sites, hourly utilisation reports and fuel consumption measurement.

At present, the company uses a multitude of telematics service providers but is looking to set up Trakm8 as their primary supplier with all assets fitted with a Trakm8 device over the next 3 years.

Petr Dvořák, Operations Manager at COLAS CZ said: “The telematics system from Trakm8 lets us see and evaluate the utilisation of our fleet of construction equipment and concerning personal cars, allows us to produce journey logs of our employees. The system is working well and both parties are in active communication regarding additional functionality.  Bringing these new features live will further enhance the solution and the benefits to COLAS CZ.  We look forward to working with Trakm8 over the coming years.”
