Henry Schein Animal Health targets safe and efficient driving with Ctrack

Henry Schein Animal Health UK

Henry Schein Animal Health UK, a national distributor of veterinary supplies, has teamed up with Ctrack to develop and implement an advanced telematics solution for its UK van fleet.

The company will use the web-based system across more than 100 delivery vehicles that operate nationwide to improve road safety, reduce fuel consumption and enhance transport planning.

Ctrack Online, combined with Driver ID, in-vehicle driver behaviour feedback and performance monitoring,  will replace a legacy telematics system.

The vehicle tracking solution will be used by Henry Schein as a planning tool for delivery schedules.

This will enable the company to optimise available resources, while keeping mileage to a minimum. In addition, geo zones will be placed around each customer location to create waypoints that trigger email alerts when a van arrives to confirm successful order completion.

Meanwhile, a driver performance indicator – using a green, yellow or red band for each driving exception with an overall score calculated for a simple ranking system – will allow Henry Schein to quickly and easily track and give feedback on employee performance.

As a result, Henry Schein is planning to use the information to underpin an incentive scheme that rewards best practice in terms of safe and green driving.

Rob Morris, vice-president of operations at Henry Schein UK and Western Europe, said: “We are committed to having an efficient and safe delivery fleet.

"While we have been using vehicle tracking for some time, Ctrack Online offers higher levels usability and reporting capabilities that will ensure we can effectively monitor, measure and improve performance.

"Our aim is to continue providing the highest levels of service to our customers, while minimising environmental impact and protecting our staff and other road users.”
