Surefeight saves £300,000 with telematics

Surefreight, a logistics company operating between Britain, Ireland and Europe, says it is on track to make savings of more than £300,000 from fitting a telematics system in its 112-strong transport fleet. It is using the EcoTrak system from CMS SupaTrak.

Surefreight began working with CMS SupaTrak on a trial basis – fitting a number of vehicles with the EcoTrak fuel-saving technology. At the time their fuel consumption was 6.9 mpg. By the end, the average consumption being achieved by these vehicles was 8 mpg, equating to an annual fuel cost saving of over £300,000 across the whole fleet.

General manager Frances Fields says the company is making these savings by monitoring and managing driver behaviour, identifying drivers with less efficient performance, and addressing issues where necessary.

'It's not a question of training our drivers,' she emphasises. 'Our drivers know how to drive to reduce fuel consumption. We just needed a tool to allow us to monitor and manager their driving styles.'

The telematics system has also brought other benefits, she adds, including simpler time sheet management.

Now the company is trialling CMS's EcoTrak+ economy engine remapping system, which is expected to bring further fuel savings (possibly up to 10 per cent).
