Travis Perkins adds more Masternaut fleet management 18 November 2011

Travis Perkins has confirmed that it is to roll out Masternaut's fleet management system to a further 1,000 of its commercial vehicles.

This takes the total number of telematics-optimised vehicles in the Travis Perkins fleet to around 3,000.

Graham Bellman, group head of transport at Travis Perkins, says the expanded use of the system follows last year's acquisition by Travis Perkins' of plumbing and heating company BSS Group.

"We have taken the opportunity not only to renew our Masternaut contract but also to expand the system to the rest of the fleet," says Bellman. "For this extension, we have selected the latest mobile collection units and contactless interfaces to link each vehicle's onboard systems to Masternaut."

"This will provide accurate monitoring, and highly detailed business analyser Optimark reports on vehicle use and activity, enhancing the quality of information we get from the live vehicle tracking system," he adds.

Bellman also suggests that, with this additional investment, the company will be able to extend the Travis Perkins Driver of the Year programme to other commercial vehicle drivers within the group.
