Tarmac Onecard IMAGE 02

Tarmac’s use of a cloud-based driver compliance, engagement and training technology has reached a landmark after the company presented its 10,000th driver with a smart card.

Supplied by specialist software solutions provider Reference Point, Tarmac’s OneCard digitally captures information and data on drivers’ credentials and training history, as well as key qualifications such as CPC hours.

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

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

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

Phil Ramsden, OneCard project manager, logistics, said: “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 them time completing paperwork and holding multiple different licences.”

The 10,000th OneCard was formally presented to Michael Godber, who works for Basra Trucking, one of Tarmac’s haulier contractors, at the company’s Snodland asphalt plant in Kent.
