Discounted driver monitoring for fleet managers
The FTA is offering fleets access to the Live Drive Pro driver monitoring and intervention system at preferential rates.
The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has announced the launch of Live Drive Pro to its 15,000 members.
Live Drive Pro, which is available to FTA members at a preferential rate, is a key tool in improving the wellbeing of drivers, meeting occupational road risk management obligations and cutting overall operating costs and administration.
The real-time verbal feedback and coaching system enables companies to support better driving throughout their car and van fleet, helping drivers to understand exactly how they need to drive their vehicle to be both safe and efficient. The device, which can be simply and easily fitted, uses verbal and visual LED alerts to improve driving style, leading to greater fuel efficiency, reduced vehicle wear and tear, lower insurance premiums and reduced carbon dioxide emissions.
Alan Richardson, FTA’s Head of Membership, commented: “FTA has worked with the supplier to provide Live Drive Pro to its members, as we’re convinced that its real-time interactive in-vehicle support provides good all-round driver improvement.
“Live Drive Pro not only improves driving on the road in real time, but also enables fleet managers to recognise, reward and, where necessary, retrain drivers.”
Benefits include an estimated fuel saving of over 10%, at-fault accident reduction, a reduction in vehicle wear and tear and improved driver well-being.
