Europe News: Trafficmaster brings Fleet Director service to the UK

After fifteen years of success in the US, Trafficmaster is set to launch its comprehensive fleet management and tracking service – Trafficmaster Fleet Director – in the UK.

Fleet Director will offer fleets fully integrated navigation, stolen vehicle tracking and live traffic information.

Integrated with the company’s Smartnav congestion avoidance and navigation system, Trafficmaster Fleet Director can help to reduce a fleet’s fuel consumption, and consequently its carbon footprint, by up to 28%, and reduce driving time by up to 32%.

Under the Teletrac brand in the US, Fleet Director has reduced fleets’ fuel consumption by an average of 13%. Across Teletrac’s customers, this equates to annual totals of 280,000 tonnes of CO2 and almost US$100 million in fuel at current prices.

Trafficmaster Fleet Director provides drivers with dynamic navigation, traffic information and congestion avoidance, a live connection to Trafficmaster’s control centre and two-way communication with base, all via the integrated touchscreen.

Set-up costs have been minimised as Fleet Director will be delivered via Trafficmaster’s existing in-vehicle technology, which already supports Smartnav navigation and Trackstar stolen vehicle tracking.

Citroen will be the first vehicle manufacturer to offer the service in the UK, as an optional extension to the Smartnav and Trackstar services already available as standard on all new Citroen Relay and Dispatch vans – the only such services standard in the UK LCV market.
