Kerry Foods’ direct to store business has taken on GreenRoad’s driver performance and safety management system to manage its temperature controlled fleet.
The system is being deployed across 330 vehicles from 26 sales centres.
Kerry has trialled the system at its Shepton Mallet depot since September 2011, which has resulted in a 9 per cent decrease in its fuel bill.
Andrew Redstone, operations director, said: “Our drivers serve as sales representatives and they have a wealth of sector and product knowledge. Given the responsibility they have representing the KFDTS brand, we believe it is appropriate that GreenRoad also gives the drivers responsibility for their driving performance.’’
