Samsara, a connected operations cloud company, announced on April 27, 2021, that it has partnered with Fraikin UK, part of one of Europe's largest commercial vehicle fleet services companies. As part of this partnership, Fraikin UK has named Samsara a preferred partner to provide data-driven services to its customers that identify opportunities using real-time data to improve driver safety, efficiency, and sustainability of their connected fleets.
Fraikin Group is a 70 year old company that manages more than 58,000 vehicles across Europe including light commercial vehicles, alongside medium and heavy trucks.
"Connected vehicle data, when interpreted in the right way, can be used to achieve meaningful efficiency gains and cost benefits for our customers," said Mike Hemming, technology champion at Fraikin UK. "However, oftentimes visibility into this data is both limited and complex to understand. With Samsara as our preferred supplier, our customers will be able to maximize the benefits of actionable data coming from their connected vehicles."
Samsara's Connected Operations Platform collects rich data including distance travelled, rate of speed, fuel efficiency, diagnostic fault codes, and distracted driving indicators. Real-time visibility into this information can transform fleet operations by streamlining billing, reducing vehicle downtime, and preventing accidents.
The Fraikin Group, established in France in 1944 by Gérard Fraikin, has operations in 11 countries, with more than 2,800 employees, 7,000 clients, and 157 branches. It has operations in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK.
"We're thrilled to be partnering with Fraikin UK to provide them with a proactive and data-driven approach to operational efficiency," commented Philip van der Wilt, VP of EMEA at Samsara. "With increased visibility into connected fleet data via Samsara, Fraikin can analyze trends, adjust behaviors and pivot business strategies as needed to achieve meaningful impact for their customers."
Samsara operates in North America and Europe and serves more than 20,000 customers across a wide range of industries .
