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 tanker trailers in its fleet.

Microlise Fleet Performance said it 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 will be available via the Microlise Driver Performance Management (DPM) app that Abbey’s drivers can download. 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 each other through league tables and incentives.

Abbey Logistics’ management will also be able to identify areas for improvement 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 also be implementing 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.”

DPM runs on both Android and iOS devices, delivering increased driver engagement with telematics, whilst at the same time reducing management resource requirements.
