BOOST: Currie 'going from strength-to-strength'
International transport and logistics provider Currie European have signed a new five-year deal for Masternaut’s telematics solution.
Masternaut have delivered both vehicle tracking and driver behaviour monitoring functionality to the business since 2008, generating a marked uplift in productivity for Currie.
It has facilitated improved fleet planning, with at-a-glance visibility of every vehicle enabling the organisation to cut down on wasted journey time.
The driver behaviour module has also allowed Currie European to monitor the safety of their drivers, highlighting habits such as speeding or vehicle idling.
“Masternaut’s system has had a huge impact on our business.”

Steve Walls, Business Systems Director at Currie European, said: “Masternaut’s system has had a huge impact on our business.
“Since bringing on the solution in 2008, we’ve been able to significantly improve the operational efficiency of our fleet.
“Improving our productivity has had a knock-on effect on customer service; we can ensure we always reach our customers in time, while keeping them better-informed en-route.
“What’s more, we share this fleet intelligence directly with customers, allowing them to view exactly where our vehicles are on a map-based interface generated in real time by Masternaut’s data, via our customer portal.”
Martin Hiscox, Chairman and CEO of Masternaut, added: “Managing the efficient coordination of a fleet the size of Currie European is no easy task.
“By using our solution, Steve and his team are exemplifying how telematics can be used to not only drive tangible business benefits back to the organisation, but also to deliver significant service improvements to its own customers.
As Currie European goes from to strength to strength, we look forward to a continued successful partnership as we enable the business to keep tabs on its ever-expanding fleet.”
