Pie Mapping will be at  Freight in the City Expo on 2 November in London to demonstrate how its fleet management and journey planning software can make deliveries more efficient.

The firm’s Pie Maps, available from next month, provides real-time journey planning to ensure vehicles take the most efficient route while adhering to any weight, time or emissions restrictions that may apply.

Pie for Drivers will be an extension of this. It will be on the market early next year with a companion app to enable drivers to view their particular job details and routes.

Pie Connect, meanwhile, will enable operators to ensure they are able to track the whereabouts and health of their vehicles while out on a job when it is launched next year.

This enables action to be taken in the event of a breakdown or congestion to ensure any delays to deliveries are minimised.

The company is also in the final testing stage of its Pie Fleet 360-degree feet management system, which is also due for launch early next year.

This will integrate all of Pie’s systems and should allow businesses to manage their entire fleet operation, including workforce details, scheduling, drivers’ hours, driving behaviours, vehicle maintenance intervals in one place.

Pie Mapping customers include DPD, DHL and retailer Superdrug.
