Bernard Matthews gobbles up telematics cost savings

  • 06 August 2009
  • By Christopher Walton

In a deal that could only be described as ‘bootiful’, telematics provider Isotrak is to work with Bernard Matthews’ transport operations.

Isotrak’s Active Transport Management System (ATMS) is to be used to monitor and improve the performance of the turkey farmer’s delivery fleet, resulting in savings, it claims, of more than approximately £100,000 a year based on fuel cost savings of up to 19%.

Bernard Matthews operates a transport operation linking farms across Norfolk, Suffolk and Lincolnshire. Isotrak has installed GPS/GPRS tracking hardware, plus its optional CANbus engine management interface, in 26 tractor units.

George Youngs, head of logistics at Bernard Matthews, says: “It’s vital for the health of our business to maintain an efficient transport fleet. A key part of that is reducing our fuel consumption to save money and drive down CO2 emissions.

“Isotrak was not the only company we looked at, but definitely the best one – they really understood our business. And the improvements we’ve seen already clearly vindicate our choice.”

Craig Sears-Black, sales and marketing director of Isotrak, adds: “We’re delighted to have shown already how they’ll secure long-term financial benefits within their fleet.”
