Does your fleet use telematics?

2015-08-24

Telematics is a system that uses in-vehicle information and communication technology to collect and monitor data on vehicles and/or drivers. It can be used alongside driver training and education and risk management policies to significantly improve fleet safety. Telematics can record harsh braking, sharp cornering or speeding and can reduce safety-related incidents by up to 50% .  According to a recent fleet safety survey report published by the road safety charity Brake sponsored by the Licence Bureau although installing telematics does involve an initial investment, many organisations report recouping the initial outlay in safety-related cost savings within a year .

Of all fleets surveyed, 70 (51%) use telematics, indicating scope for much greater use of this technology to improve safety across fleet drivers. Telematics are most commonly fitted on HGVs: seven in ten (71%) HGV fleets have telematics fitted to at least some of their HGV vehicles. Half (50%) of van fleets fit telematics to at least some of their vans, and less than a third (30%) of car fleets have telematics fitted to at least some cars. The number of fleets with motorcycles and buses that responded was low, making it difficult to draw conclusions, but most bus fleets had some kind of telematics (79%), and telematics were used on two of the small number of motorcycle fleets that responded.

About the report
138 fleet managers completed the survey, 131 of whom were UK-based. Respondents manage nearly 26,000 vehicles and 40,000 employees driving for work. The results cannot be generalised to the entire at-work driving fleet, but rather can be used to explore the technology used on fleets and can give an opportunity for benchmarking.
The size of the fleets varied: the smallest were single-vehicle operators; the largest had over 2,000 vehicles. The average fleet size was 186 vehicles. Most fleets contain a variety of types of vehicles. The exception, apart from the smallest fleets of only a handful of vehicles, is a few larger car-only fleets.
