Jaama Helps HGV Fleets Control Emissions as DVSA Gets Tough

on .

Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency
Jaama, the UK’s leading fleet and asset management software company, is helping truck fleets comply with tougher new roadside inspections by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) that include an emissions check.
 
Jaama’s industry-leading, multi award-winning Key2 software enables users to record and store all emissions-related data and then use the information to trigger any rectification requirements.
 
The Department for Transport has said that from August, roadside lorry inspections will include an emissions check with DVSA enforcement officers particularly looking for use of so-called ‘cheat devices’.
 
Although rogue hauliers are the DVSA’s target, Jaama says that it is critical that all HGV fleets have a robust audit trail of emission data recorded at every vehicle check, including service schedules and MoTs.

Anglian Water
Implementation of Jaama’s industry-leading fleet, driver, workshop and asset management software system is expected to be a game-changer for Anglian Water.
 
The Huntingdon-based company will use the multi award-winning Key2 system to deliver significant administration efficiencies across the ‘cradle to grave’ management of its fleet of 1,800 light commercial vehicles, 700 company cars, 100 HGVs, 3,000 items of plant equipment and seven workshops.
 
Furthermore, Key2, once fully introduced by early spring 2018, is expected to aid improved utilisation of the fleet and enable fleet department employees to make more informed decisions thus delivering financial savings across the operation.
 
Additionally, and critically, introduction of Key2 will transform the efficiency of Anglian Water’s workshops from a paper-based operation to a sophisticated online business with significantly enhanced management of time and spend.
 
Stewart Lightbody, who joined Anglian Water as head of fleet services three-and-a-half-years ago, said: “Management of vehicles, plant and drivers is spread across numerous applications, databases and spread sheets with no integration to allow a joined-up view.
