Calor says it has improved driver safety and efficiency of its fleet of 550 vehicles since the adoption of Trakm8’s fleet management software.

With Trakm8’s customised technology in place, Calor has implemented a company-wide driver safety programme to help raise standards and lead an improved safety focus that has resulted in driver safety improvements.

Since the start of 2021, Calor’s driver safety score has increased nationally from 68% to 77% in 12 months, its vehicle efficiency score has increased from 91% to 94% and engine idling costs have reduce by 22%.

Andrew Stout, continuous improvement and master data manager at Calor, said: “Both our fleets and driver safety standards are extremely important to us. We want our fleet to be market leading when it comes to safety, which is why we turned to Trakm8 for its telematics solutions.

“We’ve worked extensively with Trakm8 to create a custom solution that works for our needs and meets the varying requirements of our specialised fleet. With our new driver coach programme, we can already see improvements in safety performance, which will optimise miles per gallon and therefore reduce costs for the business.”

Trakm8 said its technical and diagnostics teams worked with Calor to understand the needs of every vehicle type and individually calibrate software to provide accurate readings undertaking vigorous and detailed testing.

Sandra Montgomery, key account and innovation director at Trakm8, said: “Our relationship with Calor is a true collaboration, with Trakm8 engineers working with their expert fleet team to create a bespoke firmware solution for their needs. Calor now has access to an extensive range of telematics capabilities that will decrease costs and increase safety.

“It’s great to see Trakm8 technology at the heart of the UK energy system and we’re incredibly pleased to be bringing our breakthrough technology to such a key player as Calor.”
