Henry Schein Animal Health UK drives efficiency and safety with new tracking solution

Henry Schein Animal Health UK, a national distributor of veterinary supplies, has deployed Ctrack’s web-based tracking solution to improve road safety, reduce fuel consumption and enhance transport planning for its UK van fleet.

The Ctrack Online technology will be installed in over 100 delivery vehicles.

The Ctrack Online technology will be used across more than 100 delivery vehicles that operate nationwide, replacing a legacy telematics system and providing a planning tool for delivery schedules to optimise available resources. In addition, Geo Zones will be placed around each customer location to create waypoints that trigger email alerts when a van arrives to confirm successful order completion.

The solution will be combined with Driver ID, in-vehicle driver behaviour feedback and performance monitoring to evaluate both driver and vehicle data to better understand individual standards and identify areas of improvement. As a result, Henry Schein is planning to use the information to underpin an incentive scheme that rewards best practice in terms of safe and green driving.

Henry Schein will also take advantage of Ctrack Online’s Live Productivity Dashboard and Executive Dashboard to view and understand daily activity, as well as gain added operational insight and business intelligence.

Rob Morris, vice president of operations at Henry Schein UK and Western Europe, commented: “We are committed to having an efficient and safe delivery fleet. While we have been using vehicle tracking for some time, Ctrack Online offers higher levels usability and reporting capabilities that will ensure we can effectively monitor, measure and improve performance. Our aim is to continue providing the highest levels of service to our customers, while minimising environmental impact and protecting our staff and other road users.”
