Trakm8 signs telematics and optimisation contract with COLAS CZ


Telematics specialist, Trakm8, has announced that it will supply telematics and route optimisation to Czech company, COLAS CZ. COLAS CZ, which is a member of the French Civil Engineering giant COLAS Group, will install Trakm8’s devices in a minimum of 1000 vehicles and machines over the course of three years with a view to improving the day-to-day management of its assets and reducing fuel consumption.

COLAS CZ will install a variety of devices from Trakm8’s T10 range into a mixed fleet of cars and construction machinery such as excavators, cranes and asphalt pavers working to build the Czech road network.

All of the telematics devices will report into the Trakm8 Asset system which has been specifically designed for the management of plant and machinery. The Trakm8 Asset system will provide the company with GPS positions within certain sites, hourly utilisation reports and fuel consumption measurement.

Driver behaviour monitoring and remote vehicle diagnostics will be used among COLAS CZ’s 250-strong car fleet.

At present, the company uses a multitude of telematics service providers but is looking to set up Trakm8 as their primary supplier with all assets fitted with a Trakm8 device over the next 3 years.

Petr Dvořák, Operations Manager at COLAS CZ said: “The telematics system from Trakm8 lets us see and evaluate the utilisation of our fleet of construction equipment and concerning personal cars, allows us to produce journey logs of our employees. The system is working well and both parties are in active communication regarding additional functionality. Bringing these new features live will further enhance the solution and the benefits to COLAS CZ. We look forward to working with Trakm8 over the coming years.”

Jon Law, Managing Director of Insurance and Automotive at Trakm8, said: “We are delighted to be working with COLAS CZ in what is an exciting breakthrough for Trakm8’s presence in mainland Europe. Trakm8 Asset uses rugged devices which are ideal for the outdoor environments of COLAS CZ’s vehicles and the solution’s advanced telematics technology will undoubtedly help the company to reduce fuel costs and improve asset utilisation.”
