Operator cashes in with new integrated fuel and telematics solution09 March 2018

Temperature-controlled and ambient distribution firm Corporate Solutions is reporting fuel savings of more than 8% after introducing a fuel and driver management solution from TomTom Telematics and BP.

The Birmingham-based operator implemented the solution, called BP FleetMove Pro, across its 100-strong truck fleet last June.

The system combines BP fuel card information with vehicle location, fuel consumption, driver behaviour and vehicle maintenance data from Webfleet, TomTom Telematics’ fleet management solution.

Integration of the two systems means the operator has full visibility of fuel use across the fleet in a single, easy-to-use interface, rather than relying on manual transaction checks.

Webfleet’s OptiDrive 360 functionality, meanwhile, has improved driving behaviour, with the result that fleet mpg has improved by 9.2%.

Driver training can be targeted, thanks to weekly fuel consumption reports which highlight the correlation between fuel wastage due to idling and number of accidents.

“We’re delighted with the results,” says Stuart Payne, commercial director at Corporate Solutions.

“Combining different streams of data in this way makes everyone’s life easier, helping us to save time and reduce operating costs.”

Next up is an integration of the system with the operator’s routing and scheduling system, so drivers can be directed to the best BP fuel stations on route.
