Chevin announces deal with Copart UK

Copart will use Chevin’s web-based FleetWave fleet and asset management system to track its UK support vehicles, including car transporters, JCB Loaders and Fork lift trucks.

Over one million vehicles are sold through the Copart website every year, Chevin will implement a FleetWave system to manage the company’s UK fleet of around 140 trucks, transporters and plant equipment located at their 15 facilities around the country; with metrics covering road tax and MOT renewal dates, mileage levels, fuel costs, tyre wear, repair bills, insurance claims and even penalty charge notices.

High level visibility is a key concern for Copart, as Shane Webb, group transport manager, confirms: “We were attracted to FleetWave because of its flexibility and scalability, as well as the ongoing support offered by Chevin. We can add and remove modules easily, and the dashboard and alerts system is great for keeping an eye on things like Road Fund Licence, maintenance and PCNs.”

The web-based FleetWave system will be accessible from every Copart facility with the information any individual sees automatically managed by access control at the login stage. This will ensure that only the most relevant data is presented to the person using the system.

The new FleetWave system will significantly simplify the work of all who use it, as Copart’s dedicated Chevin project manager Steve Llewellyn explains: “The previous system was not designed as a fleet management package. We’re stripping out all of the unnecessary duplication and enhancing the capabilities of the transport and fleet managers by giving them better visibility over critical data. I know the Copart team are going to get a lot out of using FleetWave, so we’re all expecting a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”
