UPS has announced the roll out of telematics technology to its Singapore delivery fleet.
UPS vehicles have been equipped with energy informatics sensors that track and transmit more than 200 vehicle-related elements on speed, reversing, idling, and braking – to data warehouse computers for analysis.
The analysis is reviewed by UPS’s operations management team to identify safety breaches and inefficiencies, and then used to effectuate operational enhancements.
“Telematics is an exciting example of how UPS integrates human variables and technology advancements to support organisational efficiency,” said Ingrid Sidiadinoto, Managing Director of UPS Singapore.
UPS is also able to use the data to analyse mechanical variables and carry out repairs and maintenance on each vehicle only when required.
“Introducing a diagnostic analytics tool like telematics to our Singapore operations helps us anticipate problems and take action before they occur,” continued Sidiadinoto.
“We are pleased to be the first UPS market in Asia to pioneer the use of telematics and look forward to delivering the best level of customer service by making our operations as efficient as possible.”
