Abbey Logistics Group opts for Microlise’s telematics solution
Written by: Sam Fenwick | Published:

Abbey Logistics Group, one of the UK’s largest bulk liquid and powder transport providers, is deploying 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 give drivers easy access to insights about their performance, increasing their engagement with telematics and giving them the feedback they need to improve their driving. At the same time, the app is designed to reduce the amount of managers’ time consumed by telematics and driver improvement programmes.

The DPM app, which runs on both Android and iOS devices, 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 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 detailed information about the fleet operation to enable the Abbey Logistics team to understand where improvements can be made.

In addition, Abbey Logistics will implement Microlise Remote Digital Tachograph Download, which automates the collection of drivers’ hours on a regular basis, no matter where the vehicle is.

“The deployment of Microlise Fleet Performance will give us the visibility we need to make effective improvements quickly,” said Steve Granite, Abbey Logistics Group CEO. “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.”
