Courtice Auto Wreckers ranked among the top fleets of 2016 and Q4 2016 in Azuga’s Safe Fleet Awards. They are in their fourth decade of operations as a moving service company in Oshawa, Canada.
When you are in the Auto Moving business, monitoring trips to and from job sites as well as the hours spent on-site can make a significant impact on the efficiency of field operations. Key priorities for Courtice were maximizing fleet utilization and reducing unsafe driving, particularly in congested areas with lower posted speed limits.
For Courtice, Driver Safety has gone up, and fuel usage has improved as supported by data from Jan to Oct 2017. During this period, the number of Hard Braking events per 100 miles reduced by 57%, and Hard Acceleration events per 100 miles also reduced by 72%. This is not just reduction in risk but offers nuggets to negotiate insurance premiums down. And when drivers drive a bit safer, fuel consumption decreases. Azuga has seen 6%-8% decrease in fuel when drivers change behavior on safety-related metrics.
