Southern Cranes and Access has introduced a new integrated camera telematics system to its fleet.

The company, which has 91 vehicles on its fleet including vans as well as cranes and heavy vehicles, has rolled out Webfleet together with Mantis Live cameras.

It is said to have worked closely with official Webfleet partner AES Fleet to deploy the system.

It is said to have offered greater asset visibility and security, with cranes often out on site for weeks at a time. The company’s cost control strategies, meanwhile, are said to have been boosted by the ability to monitor and address inefficient fuel usage and driving performance with greater accuracy.

Southern Cranes transport manager Tony Flegg said: “We wanted to ensure we had the best tech infrastructure to support our commitment to our value proposition of reliable, flexible and efficient customer service standards.

“The introduction of the Webfleet platform has enabled us to streamline and enrich our digital fleet management capabilities, and we are already realising significant productivity and cost-efficiency gains.

“The solution is robust and easy to use and it will help raise the bar in the efficiency of our day-to-day operations as we set our sights on continued business growth and the highest standards of service delivery.”
