University of Warwick strikes tracking deal to reduce fleet costs

The University of Warwick is to deploy tracking from Teletrac Navman across its 130-strong fleet of vehicles, gaining increased visibility to streamline its operations.

Its diverse fleet covers panel vans, tipper trucks, utility vehicles and agricultural machinery, and is used by more than 500 drivers.

To enhance areas from vehicle location and utilisation, driver safety, and compliance and fuel management, the university is now deploying telematics for the first time.

The deal will see Teletrac Navman’s end-to-end mobile asset and fleet management solutions deployed to provide real-time actionable insights, supported by custom reports in all key areas.

The solution also includes Teletrac’s Driver ID solution, which means the university’s drivers must present a PIN to operate authorised vehicles on campus, preventing misuse and enhancing safety and security.

Graham Hine, senior transport services manager at The University of Warwick, said the Teletrac Navman solution will provide the university with the visibility and data needed to inform its decision-making and future fleet strategy.

“Teletrac Navman’s expertise in digital transformation has been invaluable to us; we believe their solutions will play a pivotal role in keeping everyone on the campus and the wider community safe. It will also help to maximise vehicle utilisation and productivity, reduce fleet costs, and support our sustainability strategy alongside our climate emergency programme, by providing and analysing real-time carbon emissions data for our transport operations,” he commented.
