Bibby Distribution’s use of telematics improves fuel efficiency


Bibby Distribution’s use of telematics to create tailored driver training has improved its fuel economy by 10 per cent and reduced its CO2 emissions by 11 per cent – savings directly benefiting its customers.

The 3PL’s use of Microlise technology means 79 per cent of its drivers now operate in the top two levels of performance, meaning they maximise safe and fuel-efficient driving.

Bibby has a wide customer base in a number of key industrial sectors where driving safety, environmental performance and cost control are seen as critical.  These developments have delivered tangible reductions in environmental impact and improvement in safety across the operation, which has seen Bibby Distribution recognised with numerous industry awards, including the RoSPA Gold Award and the Fleet Transport Association’s LCRS Leadership in Carbon Reduction Award.

Bibby Distribution’s Continuous Improvement Manager, David Morley, says: “The data we get from our telematics system is incredibly powerful and we have been able to use it to create tailored training programmes, delivering bespoke training aligned to business strategy which improves driver skills and customer experience.

“That means we can give customers every confidence they will benefit from lower carbon emissions in their supply chain and more cost-effective delivery.”

Nadeem Raza, Chief Executive Officer at Microlise, adds: “Bibby Distribution’s use of telematics data is highly intelligent. Instead of just using it to track general trends, the training team has taken that information and is proactively helping drivers improve their skills.”

Bibby Distribution’s training strategy contributes towards its long-term Road to Zero strategy, aimed at achieving zero harm, zero waste and zero environmental impact from its operations.
