CAS boost fleet efficiency with Aeromark

Central Auto Supplies, a supplier of branded automotive components to the motor trade, has deployed Aeromark’s next level telematics software, Optimatics, to help it accurately monitor and effectively manage its fleet of delivery vehicles.

The system has enabled the company to add an average of three extra deliveries per day per van and bring forward the start and extend the finish times of its drivers by tailoring local delivery patterns through better planning.

This has led to a reduction in average journey time by six minutes and reduced the company’s average journey miles by 35.5 per cent, as well as eliminating speeding incidents and lowering vehicle downtime.

Mark Piercy, managing director of CAS, said: “In today’s harsh economic climate it has never been so important to ensure that your business is operating as productively and efficiently as possible without compromising customer service.

“We recognised that obtaining overall visibility of our business’ specific key performance indicators (KPIs), associated with how we operate our delivery fleet would enable us to monitor the fleet’s operation resulting in more effective management.”  

Optimatics gathers data feeds from Aeromark’s telematics Aerotrack system, which is used to provide overall visibility of CAS’s delivery vehicles.  This data is viewed through the graphical user interface reporting tool, Smartdash.
