The World Food Programme (WFP), a UN organisation, is implementing Chevin Fleet Solutions’ web-based fleet management system across all of the 82 countries it operates in.
The roll out aims to improve visibility of fleet requirements, streamline efficiencies and reduce cost, allowing the humanitarian agency to better provide its vital service to those most in need.
FleetWave, the web-based application designed by Chevin Fleet Solutions, will be rolled out in Uganda this month and internationally across the whole organisation by the end of the year.
Traditionally, the WFP has relied upon a paper-based fleet management process, with countries such as Sudan and Afghanistan being covered by RoadBase, Chevin’s desktop fleet management application designed for smaller or less complex fleets.
After meeting with the WFP in Rome during November 2009, it began developing the FleetWave system.
The addition of a ‘specific trips’ module means that FleetWave will now enable fleet logistics teams in each country’s office to input data such as vehicle routing, journey duration and fuel consumption; and a ‘way bills’ module gives fleet and logistics managers access to an audit trail of when and where deliveries have been successfully dropped off, providing full chain of custody records for all aid donations.
