Navevo operators in control of their fleets

Letchworth, UK: Navevo, which makes nav for HGV drivers, has launched its Line of Route technology, a navigation system designed for fleet operators that it says can significantly cut down on wasted journeys.

“Currently fleet operators use a sophisticated transport planning and management system to produce an optimised schedule for deliveries. However, when these schedules are provided to a driver they generally consist of just an ordered list of stops and the actual route the driver should take between each stop is never made available. This leaves a driver to individually decide which route to take between each stop using a variety of different methods including local knowledge, printed maps or a satnav system.”

“The problem is that none of these methods exactly match the optimised scheduled route calculated by the transport planning software, thus creating a significant disparity between planned vs. actual. This affects customer satisfaction, wastes fuel and increases the time taken to complete a delivery schedule, meaning these carefully planned routes between deliveries are rendered redundant.

While investigating the planned vs actual issue, Navevo reports that fleet operators are seeing an average difference of eight miles per driver per day, equating to wasted fuel costs of over £1100 per year per vehicle. One operator with a national fleet of over 650 rigids, 60 of which operate in London on a daily basis with 10-20 drops per vehicle per day, was incurring wasted fuel costs in excess of £700,000 per year, and approximately 97.5 wasted man hours every day,” Navevo says.

36246Navevo’s Line of Route technology helps solve this problem by allowing drivers to follow a route produced by their transport planning software, ensuring the actual driven route is an exact duplicate of the one created by the job planner. Even if the driver comes off the planned route at any time, the navigation software is able to recalculate a route that gets the driver back to the original planned route, ensuring that it is closely followed throughout the entire journey.

“And it’s not just fleet operators and HGV drivers who can benefit from Line of Route technology. The system has been designed to work in a range of operational environments including refuse collection, gritting operations, bus and coach operations and event-based transport operations. Line of Route technology is available on all of Navevo’s ProNav range of dedicated HGV navigations systems (that also offer dedicated large vehicle routing with height, weight, width etc.), as well as in a software only version for integration with other fleet technology solutions.”
