Abbey Logistics Group will deploy a Microlise fleet management telematics solution to 350 tractors and 300 trailers in its fleet.
Microlise Fleet Performance will provide Abbey Logistics with real-time visibility of its fleet and help it to improve driver performance and safety, while reducing fuel costs and environmental impact
It will replace three different tracking systems currently being used in the business, as a result of contract wins and an acquisition.
Driver performance metrics, including A-G grades on a range of criteria, will be available via the Microlise Driver Performance Management (DPM) app.
DPM is designed to empower drivers to improve with easy access to insights about their own performance.
The DPM app also gives drivers a view of their performance compared to others in their team, providing the option to motivate drivers through league tables and incentives.
Abbey Logistics’ management will also be able to identify poor performance and manage by exception, delivering targeted driver debriefs and training.
The full suite of fleet performance reports will also be available via the Microlise web portal, giving information about the fleet operation to enable the Abbey Logistics team to understand where improvements can be made.
Abbey Logistics Group’s chief executive officer Steve Granite said: “The deployment of Microlise Fleet Performance will give us the visibility we need to make effective improvements quickly.
“We are also hoping to free up management time by removing many manual processes and focusing our resources where they are needed. All of this is aimed at delivering the best service for our customers.”
