Trimble and Totalmobile have developed an innovative vehicle management booking and integrated inventory management system that will enable EKFB to monitor, manage and analyse the status and location of its subcontractors’ vehicles and inventory in real-time.
The cloud-based solution will provide EKFB with immediate oversight of the progress of thousands of trucks each day via a single dashboard, including detailed information on loads, collections and completed deliveries.
Peter Bimson, operations director at EKFB said: “Historically, the management and monitoring of routes has been the responsibility of carriers or shippers; however, Totalmobile and Trimble’s innovative solution hands that control to us.
“It will help overcome the significant complexity associated with maintaining oversight of the hundreds of thousands of journeys when working at scale across such a large and diverse area.”
Chris Quin, commercial director, Trimble MAPS Division added: “We understand that our customers in the construction industry are faced with complicated transport requirements.
“Leveraging our strength in building solutions that are designed to support the unique needs of commercial vehicles operating on and off the construction site, we’ve developed a system with Totalmobile that will provide highly precise routing and guidance for workers to and from the service point on the site, down to the last mile.
“The solution will help minimize disruption to communities within the HS2 project area while ensuring EKFB meets its contractual obligations and responsibilities.
“This is an exciting collaboration for Trimble and Totalmobile to support EKFB by delivering technology that is focused on improving efficiency, compliance, and most importantly, driver safety to and at the site during the construction of HS2.”
