By monitoring driving behaviour such as idling and speeding, the company will in particular target a reduction in fuel usage.

The system will also be used by office-based administrators and schedulers at 15 hubs located across the UK to identify the nearest and most appropriate vehicle to an incoming job based on location and available time. Meanwhile, TruckForce will ensure its vehicles are working efficiently and legally by monitoring operational data such as arrival times, hazard warning lights usage and compressor times.

Paul Floyd, Truck Administration Manager at Goodyear Dunlop, commented: “We are committed to providing a 24/7 solution that guarantees excellent levels of service and complete peace of mind, so it is essential to have a means of tracking our vehicles in the field. This ensures we maintain service levels in the most efficient way to help keep our customer’s vehicles in peak condition and provide an effective safety net. We have used Ctrack’s systems for over five years and have been very happy with the results so it was the obvious decision to roll the solution out across our entire fleet.”
