New systems & improving efficiency
Kingman has recently upgraded all their systems installing all vehicles with tom tom units and upgrading theirtracking software to state of the art Tom Tom Webfleet this will make our system processes alot easier due to the amount of functionalty within the system showing when Vehicles are fueled up to when there is a defect with a vehicle, all instantly over the air.
Included in this is an accident reporting system where if the driver does unfortunatly be involved in an incident they can use the tom tom device to send photos back to the office and also do a accident report form on scene, this is included in the online defect app system which drivers use daily to report there vehicles condition.
The system also take the use of phones or radios away from the driver with a system that the office can send jobs to the vehicles unit and when the driver delivers can click delivered and then will notify the office ready for their next load, with predifined messages set on the unit this also takes typing out of the equasion improving drivers and road safety.

Kingman now running walking floor trailers!
As a FORS Gold member, we are always looking to make advances in safety within our operations and within our industry in general. After seeking new and alternative options to regular tipping trailers within our industry, Kingman services have recently, decided after a year of trials, to invest in two brand new walking floor trailers. Working in partnership with Martrans Trailers, we have been able to purchase these trailers with all the latest safety features required to work within a busy city centre such as London. These include the following: left turn audible side warnings, full length Side Scan Sensors, additional safety warning lighting, a complete top-body cover-sheeting system as well as on-board self-weighing technology.
Our plan for the future is to put a replacement schedule in place and have all our trailers replaced with these new walking floor trailers within the next 5 years. Hopefully, these will lead to new safety measures being implemented on sites within our industry (especially within the London area) and prevent the likelihood of any further vehicles overturning on site when tipping.
