Telematics helps Bibby Distribution improve fuel economy by 10%

Bibby Distribution’s use of telematics to create tailored driver training has improved its fuel economy by 10% and cut its CO2 emissions by 11%.

Bibby Distribution’s use of telematics to create tailored driver training has improved its fuel economy by 10% and cut its CO2 emissions by 11%.

The company's use of Microlise technology means 79% of its drivers now operate in the top two levels of performance, meaning they maximise safe and fuel-efficient driving.

David Morley, Bibby Distribution’s continuous improvement manager, said: “The data we get from our telematics system is incredibly powerful and we have been able to use it to create tailored training programmes, delivering bespoke training aligned to business strategy which improves driver skills and customer experience.

“That means we can give customers every confidence they will benefit from lower carbon emissions in their supply chain and more cost-effective delivery.”

Nadeem Raza, chief executive officer at Microlise, added: “Bibby Distribution’s use of telematics data is highly intelligent. Instead of just using it to track general trends, the training team has taken that information and is proactively helping drivers improve their skills.”

Bibby Distribution’s training strategy contributes towards its long-term Road to Zero strategy, aimed at achieving zero harm, zero waste and zero environmental impact from its operations.
