Colas CZ to drive fuel efficiency with Trakm8 solution
Czech road construction specialist Colas CZ is deploying telematics and route optimisation from Trakm8 to improve the day-to-day management of its assets and reduce fuel consumption.
The firm, which is a member of the French civil engineering giant Colas Group, will install a variety of devices from Trakm8’s T10 range into a mixed fleet of cars and construction machinery. The plan is to establish Trakm8 as its primary supplier for telematics and fit all assets with a Trakm8 device over the next three years.
The 250-strong car fleet will benefit from driver behaviour monitoring and remote vehicle diagnostics while all the telematics devices will report into the Trakm8 Asset system. This has been specifically designed for the management of plant and machinery and will provide the company with GPS positions within certain sites, hourly utilisation reports and fuel consumption measurement.
Petr Dvořák, operations manager at Colas CZ, said: “The telematics system from Trakm8 lets us see and evaluate the utilisation of our fleet of construction equipment and, concerning personal cars, allows us to produce journey logs of our employees. The system is working well and both parties are in active communication regarding additional functionality. Bringing these new features live will further enhance the solution and the benefits to Colas CZ.”
