Protect Your Assets, Cargo and People

The safety and security of your drivers and vehicles are critical to successful fleet management. According to Fleet News, “1 in 10 stolen vehicles is company owned, with over half of these unlikely to be recovered”. Annually, the BCA predicts a total monetary loss of over £52 million due to road cargo and commercial vehicle theft. Therefore, it’s essential for operators to avoid loss by minimising risk.

In any business that relies on a fleet of vehicles, it is essential to know where those vehicles are at all times. Vehicle tracking systems provide this vital information, as well as a range of other benefits that can be extremely helpful in managing a fleet. With real-time tracking, businesses can plan routes more effectively and avoid costly delays. Tracking data can also be used to improve service delivery, by ensuring that vehicles are dispatched to the right location at the right time.

Unauthorised Vehicle Use  

Unauthorised vehicle use not only heightens the risk of theft but also shortens the lifespan of your fleet. By integrating telematics systems into your fleet, your business can actively monitor and mitigate these risks. Features such as real-time tracking, Driver ID, Fobs, keypads, and journey history provide a comprehensive understanding of vehicle usage. These tools serve to prevent vehicle misuse, thereby enhancing overall operational efficiency and security. Reach out to us today to learn more about our bespoke telematics solutions.

Geo Fence Capability

Geo-fencing technology offers a powerful way to enhance vehicle security by defining zones that trigger alerts when your vehicles enter or exit these areas. This feature extends beyond mere theft prevention—it also acts as a safety measure for lone workers, ensuring their well-being during operations. Real-time geofencing alerts provide fleet managers with immediate alerts into potential delays, unauthorised vehicle use, or safety concerns. We can support you in integrating a telematics or tracking solution with geo-fencing capabilities, specially tailored to strengthen the safety and security of your fleet operations.

Immobilisers  

One of the best ways to stop your vehicles from theft is by investing in an immobilisation system. An immobiliser is an electronic device which works by preventing a vehicle from being driven away without the key. Some immobilisers will require a sequence to unlock the car, others work with driver tags and keypads. We recommend and install immobilisers that are either Thatcham or TASSA Approved.  

Fuel Theft    

Alongside driver and vehicle security, fleet operators should pay closer attention to fuel usage and security. According to the RHA – rising fuel prices, red diesel ban and a lack of HGV driver facilities have caused a sharp increase in fuel theft. Businesses can lose £££s through fuel theft, even in small amounts at a time. We supply and install anti-theft fuel devices for vehicles. helping many businesses cut costs by preventing fuel theft.
