Bullet Express turns to Smart Telematics to enhance driver performance

Promoting effcient and safe driver behaviour across its fleet Bullet Express, one of the UK’s leading logistics specialists, has invested in Smart Telematics from Navman Wireless to help promote efficient and safe driver behaviour across its fleet of 36 vehicles

Bullet Express, famed for their 24 hour a day, 365 days a year service, chose the Navman system after exhaustive trials found it to present highly accurate data in a easy to interpret format.

David McCutcheon, Managing Director of Bullet Express, explained:

“After trialling multiple systems the decision was easy, I knew that with Smart Telematics the business would see the strongest return.

“We saw great improvements in the driver’s performance over the two week trial; the system helped them improve in all areas and we saw our drivers achieve the 85 per cent performance standard we had set.”

Bullet Express has also included Navman Wireless’ MNav 760, an integrated navigation terminal and head up training aid, that reports real-time performance statistics to the driver. David believes this ‘trainer in the cab’ can help drivers continuously self-evaluate their performance and deliver significant savings.

“We wanted to give our drivers the tools to improve their performance, knowing in real-time when they are underperforming helps them continually learn and enables them to take the training we provide on to the road.”

Mr McCutcheon believes that Bullet Express will have an improved driver base as well as a return on investment (ROI) very quickly.

Bullet Express also chose Smart Telematics to help with reducing fuel consumption and also to help with minimising the company’s impact on the environment.

Steve Blackburn, European Vice President, Navman Wireless, added:

“We are delighted to be working with Bullet Express, their commitment to improving driver performance sets a great example and we are looking forward to developing our relationship with them over the coming years.”
