Travis Perkins rolls out 1,000 more from Masternaut

Travis Perkins is rolling out Masternaut’s fleet management system to a further 1,000 of its vehicles.

The builders’ merchant and home improvement retailer has selected the latest mobile collection units and contactless interfaces to link each vehicle’s onboard systems to Masternaut.

This will provide accurate monitoring, and detailed Business Analyser Optimark reports on vehicle use and activity, from the live vehicle tracking system.

The real-time data feeds into the company’s Paragon routeing and scheduling system, allowing planners to compare live activity against the plan. It also links to the company’s in-house developed PDA-based delivery management system.
