Dairy Crest moves maintenance online with r2c

Dairy Crest has adopted r2c Online’s fleet maintenance and compliance platform to improve the efficiency of its commercial vehicle maintenance processes at its national distribution centre in Nuneaton.

The software allows Dairy Crest’s national distribution centre to remove paperwork and the risk of holding incomplete or eligible records from its fleet maintenance processes.

All information about vehicle assets and any maintenance and repair work undertaken will be captured electronically and immediately uploaded to the platform, eliminating the need to duplicate and transport paper service records.

Having this information provided electronically, collated centrally and available at the touch of a button, improves the accuracy of compliance records and allows better communication and collaboration with maintenance partners.

Jim Whitmore, transport compliance manager at Dairy Crest's national distribution centre, said: “The r2c system has improved fleet performance, costs and visibility across all our tracked assets.

"A paperless system has improved record retrieval along with online reporting to establish vehicle maintenance, defects and attributed costs.

"It’s been so successful that we have now established our key maintenance suppliers within the process to eliminate the timely process of waiting for service inspection sheets.”
