Altrad adopts Michelin Connected Fleet to enhance performance

06 July 2023 #Van

Support services provider Altrad is partnering with Michelin Connected Fleet to help improve the performance of its 1,000-strong fleet of vans and make its operations more cost-effective, safer and more sustainable.

Altrad is rolling out the system across its van fleet over the next year, using the solutions and insights to improve driver behaviour, help reduce accident rates and assist in the transition to electric vehicles.

Having trialled some of Michelin Connected Fleet’s services for different projects over recent years, Altrad chose to replace its previous telematics partner with the system to provide a more integrated and comprehensive approach to fleet management.

Michelin Connected Fleet is designed to provide the tools and information fleet operators and managers need to easily manage their fleets on a daily basis.

Matthew Hammond, Head of Fleet & Plant at Altrad, said: “We are committed to continually improving the safety of our fleet and Michelin Connected Fleet is the right partner to help us engage with our drivers. Whilst most of our journeys are good, we’re looking at how we can enhance our performance to be even better.

“Our objective is to gain greater visibility of what our vans are doing, on a day-to-day basis whilst empowering our drivers to improve and be more disciplined by utilising Michelin Connected Fleet’s driver behaviour tools and in-cab coaching techniques.

“We also recognise a range of other benefits for our business, including optimising fleet utilisation, better fuel economy and assisting Altrad in reducing CO2 emissions across our fleet.”
