Onpoint Logistics cuts fuel bill by a third using connected fleet management


Onpoint Logistics has seen its fuel bill slashed by a third (34 per cent) and productivity boosted by 14 per cent, thanks to the introduction of connected technology from Webfleet Solutions.

The Birmingham-based specialist logistics company has implemented an integrated solution using the WEBFLEET fleet management platform.

With a fleet of more than 60 vehicles, ranging from vans to 44 tonne trucks, the leading logistics and haulage company specialises in the movement, storage, and logistical support of time-critical freight for manufacturers throughout the UK and Europe.

Onpoint Logistics works closely with Communicate Better, an official Webfleet Solutions premium partner, to take advantage of rich scheduling, fleet planning and asset utilisation technology.

Carl Delaney, Managing Director of Onpoint Logistics, said: “As we specialise in providing same day or next day delivery throughout the UK and parts of Europe, optimal efficiency and seamless processes are crucial to our business.

“We needed a solution that would help us manage and monitor our fleet in real-time, reduce costs, and provide key data insights to improve driver behaviour.

“We turned to Communicate Better who delivered a smart, time-saving WEBFLEET fleet management platform that is cost-effective, boosts productivity and keeps our drivers safe out on the roads.”

WEBFLEET provides 24/7 automated reporting and asset tracking, offering full visibility of the Onpoint Logistics fleet, with OptiDrive 360 functionality empowering drivers to be greener and safer by giving them real-time feedback and advice on their performance behind the wheel.

A smart 360-degree integrated vehicle camera system, meanwhile, provides associated video evidence for every driving event, offering context and clarity into why incidents occurred, further assisting in improving driver behaviour and driver security.

“Having full transparency over our fleet and the powerful insights needed to take decisive action has saved us time and money and given us the ability to redirect vital resources and further invest in our business,” added Delaney.
