    Walkers Transport Case Study

    Founded in 1979, Walkers operates a fleet of 200 vehicles from its purpose-built distribution centre in Leeds, all of which are maintained in-house. The 24-hour operation processes over 3000 pallets each day which requires state-of-the-art systems and technology to maintain tight control of operations.

    The way things used to be:

    • Too much paperwork .
    • Business needed streamlining.
    • A lot of time spent on administrative tasks.

    Their aim:

    • In an increasingly competitive marketplace, Walkers were looking for ways to improve efficiencies, drive down costs and increase profits. They therefore wanted to digitally manage their fleet and workshop.

    Additional benefits they’ve found:

    • Saving 20 minutes per inspection.
    • Cost of defect repairs has reduced by £500 per month.
    • Reliable maintenance scheduling for up to 10 years in advance!

    “Things were too messy before. There was too much paperwork flying around and we really needed to streamline the business. r2c Online makes our fleet management much slicker and it is much easier to maintain compliance.

    “We performed a time and motion study which showed that work was duplicated up to five times in some cases. Our processes are so much simpler now, which means we are saving time and money. Less time is spent doing paperwork and more time spent actually fixing vehicles. We’re now saving 20 minutes per inspection and we’ve reduced the cost of defect repairs by £500 per month, along with all the additional benefits that a digital solution provides.

    “The scheduling features are 10/10. I was actually chuckling inside recently as I saved so much time. I scheduled 10 years’ worth of maintenance, just in case, and we only hold our vehicles for 5 years!

    “r2c is a great time saver; there is no loose paperwork, and the fleet quality can be monitored better. Overall, the fleet quality is improving. I would recommend r2c Online as overall it is a fantastic system which is extremely beneficial to Walkers.”
