IMS has successfuly installed phase 1 of a smart technology programme on its 60 strong vehicle fleet; the first step of an exciting initiative that will improve the accuracy of delivery times and speed up deliveries.
When complete, the initiative will include smart routing for deliveries to avoid congestion and speed up deliveries and provide real-time progress updates directly to customers. Ultimately, customers will benefit as they can plan their project deliveries using accurate delivery times and with real-time delivery updates.
Phase 1 has seen the installation and roll-our of a fleet management solution that improves driver performance and behaviour, which is already realising improvements in delivery times and an uplift in productivity.
Improved vehicle routing and real-time updating is currently in final trials within IMS and is due for roll-out within the next few months.
