Hay & Brecon 20 Vehicle Fleet-Tracking Project

Our Client

Hay & Brecon Farmers Ltd asked us to come up with a plan to track its vehicles (mainly HGVs) after a number of vehicle thefts. It also wanted to improve fleet running costs through the extra data the Plant-i system provides and monitor any off-schedule journeys made in its vehicles.

Notes & Feedback

Now that all the company’s vehicles are displayed on one central system it has been very helpful for delivery logistics. Also, the individual vehicle and driver reports (which can be emailed at the press of a button) have helped produce better and more fuel-efficient driving. The system also offers peace of mind – drivers and bosses know they have an unobtrusive, tamper-proof tracking system on each vehicle. 

THE BRIEF

We used the award-winning Plant-i tracking system to monitor in real time every vehicle in the fleet. This system helps trace stolen vehicles. Also, importantly, it provides real-time data on mileage, vehicle speeds, fuel use, idling, out-of-hours use and off-scheduled-journey alerts.

Overview

What was the problem?

What security devices did you install?
We used the award-winning Plant-i tracking system to monitor in real time every vehicle in the fleet. This system helps trace stolen vehicles. Also, importantly, it provides real-time data on mileage, vehicle speeds, fuel use, idling, out-of-hours use and off-scheduled-journey alerts. Additionally, it offers reminders about servicing, MOT and Tax. We covertly installed the tracker hardware on each vehicle of the fleet over a period of four days. We provided on-site training for the fleet manager, staff and a 24hr helpline.
 
What challenges did you face in installing the system?
Our main challenge was not disturbing the fleet during a very busy time for the company (November is one of the busiest delivery periods of the year). This meant we had to be very flexible, installing the tracking devices onto HGVs, trucks and pick-ups around drivers’ work schedules. Our engineer went to the site on four different days to install the trackers and fit in training around work/delivery schedules.
 
Any other work carried out?
We also installed Bluetooth hands-free systems in each vehicle to ensure driver safety and make sure they could operate within the law.

The Select Difference

WE LOVE A CHALLENGE

What makes Select different is not only that it offers customers the very latest security technology – but its highly qualified engineers are willing to tackle any and every job, no matter how challenging the location. That includes installing systems on farms in remote areas with no electricity supply for miles and systems at industrial complexes and in busy city centres (including at one of the UK.
