Fleet solution provider Fleetclear has equipped Milton Keynes City Council’s new fleet with live camera recording systems to track and enhance the safety of the vehicles and consolidate vehicle and driver data using its Fleetclear Connect software.

On 4 September SUEZ recycling and recovery UK commenced its new 5-year contract to carry out municipal collection and street cleansing for Milton Keynes City Council servicing around 119,000 households across the city.

As part of the new service provision, the council has been provided with a new ultra-modern fleet comprising 127 vehicles, 25% of which are electric, including 65 RCVs (Refuse Collection Vehicles) and LCV’s (Light Commercial Vehicles) for street cleansing, grounds work and play area maintenance.

The vehicles are equipped with 360-degree RXLite LIVE camera recording systems to provide real-time tracking, improve safety and record any issues. SUEZ has also adopted the Fleetclear Connect software platform to consolidate tracking and telematics information, driver behaviour monitoring, vehicle compliance and operational safety technology.

Daniel Gillert, Regional Business Manager for SUEZ Recycling and Recovery UK said: 'We have an impressive state-of-the-art fleet at Milton Keynes, equipped with the latest safety technology from Fleetclear to ensure the safety of the public, our drivers, and crews, and enhance the efficiency of our service. The Fleetclear Connect system brings everything together in one place, connecting our vehicle safety technology with journey and driver data, to give us all the information we need and a clear picture of every aspect of our vehicles, drivers, and operations.'

Mike Crowther, National Key Account Manager, Fleetclear: 'We are pleased that SUEZ have opted to equip this fleet with Fleetclear technology and software. The combination of RXLite and Fleetclear Connect provides a complete, end-to-end solution, connecting all vehicle and driver information in one place, easily accessed via a secure internet portal.'
