Speaking of the renewal, Adam Purshall, fleet and procurement director at Bibby Distribution, said: “With a mixed fleet which encompasses some 1,300 trailers across our 50 operating centres nationwide, the ability to track and manage those trailers is business-critical, ensuring we can proactively manage our customers deliveries and manage our valuable assets. It was that requirement that first led us to partner with Trakm8 five years ago, at a time when we had little visibility or management information in relation to our trailer fleet.
“Since partnering with Trakm8, we have been able to increase our trailer utilisation by 15%, ensuring our trailers are used as effectively as possible, ultimately maximising our return on investment and enabling us to manage legal compliance and the fleet size proactively.
“Working across the FMCG, food ingredient and packaging sectors, we need our fleet to be dynamic and need to have the ability to flex in line with customer volumes – something the Trakm8 solution has helped us achieve.”
Trakm8’s trailer tracking technology enables transport operators to continuously monitor the mileage and location of active trailers. With security in mind, the solution also enables transport operators to create geo fences (virtual boundaries) to help safeguard against the unauthorised use of the assets.
