By / 2 weeks ago / News / No Comments

Vehicle telematics and tracking specialist Samsara has partnered with Fraikin UK to provide real-time data that will help fleets improve safety, efficiency and sustainability.

Fraikin UK, part of one of Europe’s largest commercial vehicle fleet services companies, currently manages more than 58,000 vehicles across Europe including light commercial vehicles, alongside medium and heavy trucks.

As part of its work, Fraikin is using Samsara as a preferred partner to provide data-driven services that identify opportunities for customer to improve driver efficiency and behaviour.

“Connected vehicle data, when interpreted in the right way, can be used to achieve meaningful efficiency gains and cost benefits for our customers,” said Mike Hemming, technology champion at Fraikin UK. “However, oftentimes visibility into this data is both limited and complex to understand. With Samsara as our preferred supplier, our customers will be able to maximise the benefits of actionable data coming from their connected vehicles.”

Samsara’s Connected Operations Platform will collect real-time data such as distance travelled, rate of speed, fuel efficiency, diagnostic fault codes and distracted driving indicators.

This can then be used to streamline billing, reducing vehicle downtime and preventing accidents.

The information about driver behaviour, vehicle maintenance and vehicle utilisation will enable Fraikin to provide its customers with tailored analysis and recommendations designed to increase operational efficiency.

Philip van der Wilt, who has been newly appointed as Samsara’s VP of EMEA, commented: “With increased visibility into connected fleet data via Samsara, Fraikin can analyse trends, adjust behaviours and pivot business strategies as needed to achieve meaningful impact for their customers.”
