Edinburgh Leisure has reported savings of nearly 30% on fleet overheads after deploying Airmax Remote’s Premium telematics solution across its LCV fleet.

The business manages a number of sporting venues and develops sport and leisure services on behalf of the City of Edinburgh Council, supported by a fleet of 24 vans.

A key factor in the cost savings achieved by the implementation of the new Airmax Remote solution has been a significant reduction in the number of vehicles idling and that are driven out of hours. However, the solution has also brought a wide range of operational and risk management benefits, including enabling the firm to identify the location of drivers and can analyse the time each driver has spent behind the wheel and for how long.

Gordon Forsyth, health and safety manager, Edinburgh Leisure, commented: “We are delighted with the results that we have achieved by implementing Airmax Remote’s Premium telematics solution. The technology has helped us reduce our fleet overheads by nearly 30%, which is unprecedented, particularly considering that these results were achieved over six months. Identifying idling vehicles, as well as vehicles driven out of hours, has been a significant contributing factor in creating those savings.”

Richard Perham, managing director of Airmax Remote, said: “We work with many customers in different sectors and regularly receive feedback highlighting improved fleet efficiency and cost savings achieved by them implementing our telematics solutions. Edinburgh Leisure’s 30% reduction in fleet overheads is further testament to the power of our technology and the value and benefits that it delivers our customers.”
