The range of fleet management offerings from Michelin has been brought together under one roof.

As a result, the tyre manufacturer has launched Michelin Connected Fleet to the UK market.

Michelin Connected Fleet already receives and processes data from approximately 300 million journeys a year.

Specifically, it comprises Masternaut in Europe, NexTraq in North America and Sascar in South America. 

In total, the fleet management system is collectively responsible for 600,000 vehicles. 

The vehicles under the banner are operated by 70,000 customers across 48 countries.

 Fundamentally, Connected Fleet collects vital data through on-board telematics systems. 

In other words, it gives fleet managers a real-time view of goods, trucks and trailers. 

In addition, it also shows where the vehicles are located. 

As a result, fleet efficiency can be improved.

Therefore, operating costs can be reduced and road safety improved.

Matt Childs, Michelin Connected Fleet operational marketing manager UK and France, introduced the system. 

“We are focused on helping fleet managers to accelerate their business with performance analysis services.” 

Continuing, he said the information is based on “smart data and tools”, which lead to better insights and better visibility. 

“In turn this helps to make operations more cost-effective, safer, more predictable and sustainable,” added Childs.

The system data can also be used to help anticipate maintenance requirements, 

As a result, unscheduled downtime can be reduced. 

In addition, the system can monitor tyre pressures and temperatures to reduce the likelihood of roadside breakdowns.

 Meanwhile, Childs highlighted the ability of the fleet management offering to stand out from rivals.

“It’s no longer enough just to provide access to fleet data. 

“Therefore, we have performance analysis embedded into our offering. 

“As a result, we are perfectly placed to help customers master the management of their fleets and improve their operations.”
