Tarmac has reached a significant landmark in the rollout of new fleet technology after presenting its 10,000th HGV driver with a smart card aimed at improving haulier safety, training, and customer confidence  

Supplied by Reference Point, the OneCard digitally captures information and data on HGV drivers’ credentials and training history, as well as key qualifications such as CPC hours. 

Tarmac introduced the cloud-based platform for our HGV drivers and hauliers across all business units in 2018.

The system is now also available digitally as a virtual card that can be used on smartphones and individually personalised for every driver, with fraud protection and identification technologies fully integrated.  

Efficient safety checks

In addition to ensuring drivers are fully compliant with necessary legislation, the system makes site safety checks and supply chains more efficient and provides improved quality and competency assurance for customers.

Phil Ramsden, our OneCard project manager, logistics, said: “As a leading responsible business we’re always looking for ways to boost safety and enhance productivity, as well as introducing technology that allows us to improve customer experience. 

“It’s impossible to imagine not having OneCard now. We have taken steps to improve our business by changing the way we manage driver compliance, engagement and training, and made data available within seconds.

“Our drivers also love the card as it saves the time completing paperwork and holding multiple different licences.” 

Tanya Morris, director at Reference Point, added: “Tarmac has shown great commitment to what OneCard could bring the business since launch.

“I am delighted to see them reach this major milestone in cardholder numbers and look forward to seeing what Tarmac will do next with the system to make further use of its functionality to underpin workforce safety and effectiveness, such as direct messaging to cardholders.”
