Bretts Transport has deployed a new fleet performance and safety management system from transport management solution provider Microlise.
The transport operator, based near Peterborough, offers a full logistics and warehousing solution and is a specialist in ambient food and food grade packaging deliveries into supermarket regional distribution centres, food service depots, manufacturers and cash and carries.
The company has deployed Microlise Fleet Performance which includes a range of standard and optional modules that aim to maximise the safety and efficiency of drivers and vehicles.
The safety module, an optional addition to Fleet Performance, has also been included and features an incident data recorder to provide granular level information about exactly what the driver and vehicle were doing 30 seconds before and after an incident.
“We were impressed with the functionality of the Microlise telematics solution and the safety module which will improve our performance and protect our drivers while they are out on the roads,” said Simon Brett, managing director of Bretts Transport.
Fleet Performance provides detailed information on infringements including speeding, harsh braking, acceleration and cornering.
The Microlise rollout is to more than 90 heavy goods vehicles operating in the Bretts Transport fleet which typically delivers in excess of 4,000 tonnes of canned food and other grocery products, along with 5,000 pallets of food grade packaging, per week.
