As a result, haulier safety and training have been increased throughout the business.

The smart card is issued to drivers, supplied by software company Reference Point.

Furthermore, the smart card also ensures drivers are fully compliant with the relevant legislation.

The smart card technology was introduced by Tarmac in 2018.

Since then, it has moved from a cloud-based system to being a smartphone-friendly and comes as a virtual product.

Importantly, the smat card offers integrated fraud protection and identification technologies. 

Phil Ramsden, OneCard project manager, logistics, reflected on the journey. 

“We’re always looking for ways to boost safety and enhance productivity.

“Therefore, it’s impossible to imagine not having OneCard now.” 

Ramsden said Tarmac had taken steps to improve the business.
