NSW-based Chevin Fleet Solutions is giving a helping hand to commercial fleets in the UK by enabling them to benchmark their own performance against that of their peers.

The company’s FleetWave software – the world’s first web-based fleet management system – is behind the UK’s latest online real-time benchmarking systems, which are enabling operators to anonymously compare performance with like-for-like fleets.

FleetWave integrates data from across departments, giving fleet managers complete visibility of every aspect of fleet operations, so that they have greater control over efficiency and safety.

Working with AECOM, Chevin has tailored versions of FleetWave to be used as benchmarking services offered by the Department of Transport (DfT) and Transport for London (TfL).

The two new systems are free to use for UK operators, and allow organisations to anonymously compare the performance of their commercial fleets to those of other similar organisations – cross=referenced by geographical area, fleet size or sector.

The benchmarking tools cover 18 key performance indicators, including fuel consumption, maintenance cycles, frequency of parking fines, safety records and a host of other associated costs.

Operators can then produce detailed reports which can be used to identify areas for investigation and strategically target overall efficiency increases.

Matt Frost, General Manager at Chevin Fleet Solutions, says: "With increasing emphasis on streamlining and demand for improved efficiency, organisations are looking for innovative ways to stay ahead of the competition, which is why we believe that benchmarking against key performance indicators will play an increasingly central role for all fleets, including freight operators, all over the world in the future.

"Whilst developing FleetWave for Benchmarking we worked extremely closely with UK-based AECOM to deliver highly-effective tools that the DfT and TfL can allow UK commercial operators to optimise their performance against that of their peers.

"It is a challenging and rewarding project to be involved in and continue to support."

Chevin Fleet Solutions is celebrating 20 years of business and continuing to enjoy global expansion despite the recent economic downturn.
