The company also says it’s seen clear safety improvements through driver behaviour monitoring. The management team have a log-in to analyse driver scores, while employees are able to view their performance via the Trakm8prime smartphone app.

Emilio Evangelista, one of Joseph’s drivers, said: “Initially the thought of my driving being tracked wasn’t really appealing. However, since having the tracker fitted I feel my driving has definitely improved.

“I feel more responsible to ensure that my driving is safe and courteous to other road users. I also enjoy being able to review my driving at the end of the week and see where I can make improvements.”
