Saints Transport to install MAN DFM

  • 08 May 2012
  • By Christopher Walton

Saints Transport is the first UK operator to install MAN‘s driver feedback module (DFM) to its fleet.

The DFM has been incorporated into the MAN EcoStyle driver and vehicle performance management system that Saints has fitted to its 195 trucks. An MAN tracking system has also been put onto all its 120 vans and trailers.

The new module automatically alerts drivers to any instances of over-revving, undue idling time and harsh braking. Excessive infringements are recorded at Saints’ headquarters, triggering a review of the incident.

Piers Carroll, Saints vice-chairman, says: “The objective behind our early adoption of the DFM is to help drivers understand when they are driving in a manner that affects their own performance and that of the company. There are no immediate penalties for triggering an alert – we talk each driver through what is happening and help them correct the problem, with training where needed.”
