Telematics savings will be more than small feed for agricultural supplier

27 November 2019

A major agricultural supplier with 32 country stores has turned to Microlise for its vehicle telematics.

Carrs Billington, which operates a 60-strong fleet, will deploy a Microlise solution including fleet performance and journey management products in an effort to increase fuel efficiency, reduce mileage run and support improved driver performance.

The Journey Management product will allow Carrs Billington to understand the location of its fleet versus the plan in real time. Data will also highlight performance against schedule and routes, alerting the team to any potential missed time-slots before they’ve happened, to support proactive customer communication.

Meanwhile, driver performance monitoring will support drivers and deliver increased efficiencies across fuel usage as well as vehicle wear and tear.

Phil Rothera, National Distribution Manager at Carrs Billington Operations, said, “We have an ambitious target to deliver increased fuel efficiencies and to support driver performance. When we realise these improvements, we will continue with our planned programme of investment to provide additional technological support to our drivers in the field.”
