The company’s initiative enhances road safety with cutting-edge technology
The UAE’s Dulsco Group has enhanced its road safety performance with its recent implementation of the tried and tested DriveSafe Telematics initiative in the region.
This programme uses technology from DriveSafe, a leading provider of fleet safety management solutions, to monitor driver behaviour and record driving parameters such as overall speed, acceleration, braking, and cornering. It provides drivers with real-time feedback on their driving performance, the company revealed in a press communique.
In 2022, the Dulsco Group integrated the DriveSafe Telematics system (previously known as GreenRoad) into their entire 158 vehicle fleet, which is part of the Dulsco People division. The aim was to educate staff and drivers and create a culture that prioritises safe driving and secure commuting for all employees.
The fleet, which includes various vehicles such as buses, vans, and cars, transports around 12,000 employees daily within the UAE. It is maintained by professional mechanics and managed by an expert team, ensuring additional safety for Dulsco Group employees.
“To ensure human safety, we have implemented various initiatives, such as DriveSafe Telematics and an in-house training academy. These cutting-edge solutions enhance our safety culture and allow us to achieve our goal to continuously improve and be better every day,” commented Antony Marke, COO, Dulsco People.
The DriveSafe Telematics system provides real-time guidance, control, and evaluation solutions to enhance safety and increase efficiency. It leads to a decrease in fleet accidents, fuel usage, carbon footprint, insurance claims, maintenance expenses and risk.
“Our collaboration with Dulsco Group has had a positive impact due to the implementation of DriveSafe Telematics. With the growing emphasis on sustainability and emission reduction in the market, DriveSafe emphasises eco-driving and accident prevention,” concluded Ali Javanmard, Regional General Manager, DriveSafe Telematics.
The Dulsco Group collaborates closely with Dubai Police and the Road and Transport Authority, the press statement concluded.
