Leeds Teaching Hospitals uses Ctrack to retain FTA Van Excellence accreditation

Leeds Teaching Hospitals has implemented Ctrack Online

Leeds Teaching Hospitals has implemented Ctrack Online to retain FTA’s Van Excellence accreditation.

Alongside organising and monitoring its fleet of 32 vans Ctrack is helping with the accreditation by demonstrating Leeds Teaching Hospitals’ “commitment to operating a safer, more efficient and sustainable fleet”.

Leeds Teaching Hospitals’ facilities coordinator for logistics and transport Walter Pawinski said: “The FTA certification requires fleets to demonstrate they are effectively managing driver behaviour, so we can show exactly how we are using vehicle tracking to monitor and investigate speeding, harsh driving events and road collisions.”

The system was used to disprove a complaint that a passenger transport service was not arriving on time, while in another, they were able to show that a driver was not at fault for a failed blood collection.

“We were able to use Ctrack Online to immediately locate the position of a vehicle when a driver had unfortunately suffered a heart attack,” said Pawinski.

“While confirming that the ambulance had deployed a spare crew member who had driven the stranded vehicle back to base.

"Ctrack Online has become an important fleet management tool providing added visibility and control over our vans.

“We operate a number of essential and time-critical services, so it is important that we can see the whereabouts and status of our vehicles both historically and in real-time.

“Using both hardwired and self-installed vehicle tracking units we have created a flexible and functional tracking solution that positively supports our logistics and transport operation.”
