ORBCOMM telematics meets all Mc Guire’s fleet management requirements


Mc Guire Haulage, the Kilkenny headquartered civil engineering road transport operator has upgraded its fleet of vehicles with ORBCOMM’s driver-focused truck telematics systems. Through wireless connectivity optimal fleet management and operational efficiency is assured.  

With a large, modern fleet of haulage trucks and trailers that provide services for roadworks, construction, earthworks, site clearance, bulk excavation, digger operations and grab hire, Mc Guire chose ORBCOMM to integrate its different telematics systems onto one comprehensive platform. By utilizing ORBCOMM’s intuitive fleet management solution, Mc Guire enhances operational efficiency through increased visibility and auditing, along with more automated management of their drivers and trucks.

ORBCOMM’s driver-friendly solution delivers GPS fleet tracking and connects to the truck’s CANbus to seamlessly collect important data from the engine, brake systems, fuel tanks and more, providing access to deep analytics and reporting. ORBCOMM’s solution also helps Mc Guire improve driver safety by providing driver performance scoring, feedback and coaching to correct unsafe driving behaviours that lead to accidents, penalty points, fines and higher insurance.

The majority of Mc Guire’s customers are in the construction industry and are challenged by evolving business needs as road projects progress to various stages. With access to accurate, reliable and real-time updates on the location of all vehicles, Mc Guire can implement cost-efficient planning, improved communications and better asset utilization across their fleet. ORBCOMM’s solution has also made a significant impact in helping Mc Guire optimize fuel management and improve profitability by monitoring driver performance KPIs such as idling and vehicle management to determine how much fuel each vehicle is burning.

“Working with a large earth haulage company is an important competitive win for ORBCOMM as it demonstrates the reliability and effectiveness of our truck telematics solutions for tipper fleets,” said Trevor Durnin, ORBCOMM’s Vice President of  Sales for the UK & Ireland. “We’re pleased to be part of Mc Guire’s ongoing fleet efficiency programs, which have  resulted in lower fuel overhead, enhanced performance and reduced environmental impact, while supporting their long-term operational, profitability and sustainability goals.”

“Our successful deployment with ORBCOMM has allowed us to gain fleet visibility, improve driver behaviour and deliver tangible operational efficiencies,” said Martin Mc Guire, Managing Director of Mc Guire Haulage. “ORBCOMM’s solution meets all of our requirements to optimize our fleet and enhance our service levels and overall performance by digging deeper into our data and analytics, which we can now view all in one place.”
