In addition, Iron Mountain has been recognized for its success using GreenRoad winning the Fleet Safety Forum’s Safe Vehicles Award from Brake.
GreenRoad received the Road Safety award at the 7th Annual CIHT Awards ceremony on 14 June at Gibson Hall, Bishopsgate London with Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal, as principal guest for the evening. The Awards are a celebration of the highways and transportation industry, rewarding the remarkable achievements of those working in the sector and to promote their professionalism and best practices to a wider industry audience.
GreenRoad won a BSIF Safety Excellence Award based upon its work with Iron Mountain, helping its fleet achieve major improvements in occupational safety over the past 12 months. In particular, the award recognized Iron Mountain’s achievements using the GreenRoad speed-by-speed zone feature to highlight speed violations by drivers. The awards at the 2012 Health & Safety Exhibition recognize excellence within the safety industry, excellence in customer service, product innovation and the improvement of occupational health and safety.
On 14th of June 2012, GreenRoad customer Iron Mountain received the Brake Fleet Safety Forum’s Safe Vehicles Award. This award recognizes organizations that have made significant improvements to the safety of their vehicles. Through effective maintenance procedures and using GreenRoad across its fleet of 430 HGVs and LCVs, Iron Mountain reduced incidents by 11% in 2011, on top of a 71% reduction over the two previous years, and significantly increased fuel efficiency.
Iron Mountain was also highly commended in Brake’s eco-fleet award category because it has cut fuel consumption through its use of GreenRoad and by minimizing grey fleet use for internal meetings. It has reduced annual mileage by more than a million miles, and fuel usage by almost 100,000 litres.
Using mobile and cloud technology, GreenRoad helps drivers self-improve. It provides drivers with instant feedback about unsafe maneuvers using the traffic light LEDs on the dashboard as well as detailed analysis and recommendations for drivers, depot managers and insurance partners online. Both large and small fleets have cut risk and fuel consumption with UK customers including First Group, Stagecoach, Osborne and Bunzl.
Companies using GreenRoad save money as better drivers use less fuel, have fewer accidents, and cause less vehicle wear-and-tear. GreenRoad embraces the ‘Connected Fleet’ where mobile, cloud computing and real-time insights enable fleet managers to save money, maximize fuel efficiency and minimize risk. A typical customer sees up to a 10% reduction in fuel-consumption and emissions as well as a 50% reduction in collision costs.
GreenRoad provides a single, comprehensive telematics solution to both change driver behavior and manage fleet performance and efficiency. Its solution engages drivers directly for meaningful, lasting behavior change. At the same time, fleet tracking, mapping and reporting help fleets optimize their daily and strategic operations.
