Carlsberg UK rolls out new telematics for its lorries

  • 19 January 2011
  • By Joanna Bourke

Carlsberg UK has signed a deal with Microlise for a telematic system for its fleet, as part of plans to drive down its logistics costs.

The brewer has confirmed it will roll-out Microlise fleet and distribution transport management systems for its 300-strong fleet in Britain, in order to cut fuel use and CO2 emissions.

Between 2009 and 2010 the firm said it had trimmed its logistics bill by £3.5m, but Mark Groves, national distribution director at Carlsberg UK has been given the task of streamlining transport costs further.

He claims the latest telematics investment will help the business to plan routes better, and improve its monitoring and analysis of driver behaviour.

Groves says: “It is very important that we continue to innovate and improve our distribution network, especially as Carlsberg UK are the only national brewer that still delivers direct to customers.”

Carlsberg UK operates as both an own-account and hire and reward operator.
