Peugeot and Citroen's free fleet telematics system
Peugeot and Citroen announced that every new van from their award-winning LCV range comes with a free six-month trial on FREE2MOVE Connect Fleet telematics service.
The trail is available with all Citroen vans: the Berlingo, Dispatch and Relay, and Peugeot vans - Peugeot Partner, Expert and Boxer. All the necessary hardware required for the Connect Fleet telematics is already in the new Citroen and Peugeot vans. Free2Move Connect Fleet will help you to better manage your drivers & vehicles via manufacturer fitted fleet telematics devices.
What is Free2Move Connect Fleet telematics fleet tracking?
Free2Move Connect Fleet is software that uses telematics technology to link you to your vehicles. This software helps you better manage your vans and drivers by providing detailed and accurate real-time information on your van fleet.
How does fleet telematics GPS tracking work?
The online Connect Fleet platform collects data from the fleet telematics devices (Connected Box) fitted by the manufacturer in each vehicle. If you lease a Citroen or Peugeot van with CVC, the Connected Box should come as standard but can also be fitted by us if not pre-fitted.
What fleet tracker packs are available?
There are three levels available to fleet operators who wish to subscribe to the telematics service after the trial period ends.
Free2Move Connect Fleet - Level 1 Fleet Management (£10 + VAT per vehicle per month)

Which fleet telematics pack is included in a free trial?
Both manufacturers are generous with their free trial pack. They offer Pack 3 – Geolocation' service, which provides the most comprehensive data for the ultimate fleet efficiency.
The subscription usually costs £12 a month plus VAT which offers fleet managers over-the-air real-time driving and location data. This service allows fleet managers to stay connected with their vehicles anytime and anywhere.
Taking Fleet management technology to another level
Julie David, Managing Director of Peugeot UK, said: “We’re delighted to offer this free six-month trial to our FREE2MOVE Fleet Connect telematics service on all PEUGEOT LCV models. Giving fleet managers unrivalled access and information about their vehicles, this great system helps them optimize use, drive down costs and increase safety. It adds further appeal to PEUGEOT’s already compelling range of award-winning vans.”
