Builders merchants group Travis Perkins is adding the Masternaut telematics systems to a further 1,000 vehicles.
The move comes after the company found that it had reduced vehicle idling by some 70%, by using the with the system.
Travis Perkins now uses Masternaut’s systems on its entire 3,000 strong fleet.
Richard Horton, head of transport development for the Travis Perkins Group, said: “With Masternaut, we have achieved a 70 per cent daily reduction in vehicle idling as a result of greater vehicle utilisation visibility. This is a great outcome for our business and our customers.”
The Masternaut system provides full visibility of fleet activity across the UK and allows the Travis Perkins Group to drill down to evaluate the performance of individual vehicles.
This has been delivered through a real-time, web-based fleet management solution which includes monitoring the Power Take-Off (PTO) usage on vehicles (classed as good idling), and the non PTO idling (classed as bad idling). Managers can access this system via the organisation’s intranet helping them to drive performance improvements within their regions.
