Abbey Logistics deploys Microlise fleet management telematics solution

PKBR Staff Writer Published 26 October 2017

UK-based Abbey Logistics Group has selected Microlise fleet management telematics solution, in a bid to improve the efficiency of the fleet.

The company is implementing Microlise fleet management telematics solution to 350 tractors and 300 tanker trailers.

Microlise fleet performance will offer Abbey with real-time visibility of its fleet, enabling to enhance driver performance and safety while reducing fuel costs and environmental impact.

Abbey is deploying Microlise fleet performance through replacing three different tracking systems currently being used in the business.

Abbey’s drivers can download the driver performance metrics through Microlise driver performance management (DPM) app.

It will also help AbbeyLogistics’ management to identify areas for improvement and deliver targeted driver debriefs and training.

Abbey Logistics will also deploy Microlise remote digital tachograph download, which can automate the collection of drivers’ hours on a regular basis

Abbey Logistics Group CEO 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.”

Microlise CEO Nadeem Raza said: “We’re pleased to be supporting the operations team with a telematics product to help identify and enact efficiency improvements.”

In September, Abbey Logistics unveiled plans to close its general haulage and pallet track division, in a bid to focus more on its core road tankers business.
