W.S. Dennison was established in 1979 with a workforce of only two. From this small but enthusiastic beginning the company has grown into a well established business with over 50 employees and 25 vehicles.
W.S. Dennison provides a furniture delivery service direct from manufacturers throughout the UK & Ireland or alternatively delivered directly into their warehouse from European & Asian manufacturers. These goods will then be routed for delivery directly to households and businesses throughout Ireland from operating centres in Antrim and Limerick.
W.S. Dennison has installed TomTom’s LINK tracking unit, PRO navigation devices, and ecoPLUS fuel monitoring devices within 20 of their trucks. Personnel in the office are now able to monitor the movements of the vehicles, analyse the way in which the vehicle is driven and supply accurate ETA’s to customers.
The drivers are able to navigate routes to customer’s premises with greater accuracy, whereas with the previous solution they were only able to navigate to a certain distance of their actual destination. Live traffic information informs the driver of any delays en-route and suggests alternatives saving time and fuel. This also enables the office to keep customers informed if there are delays, giving accurate times of arrival; a great boost to customer service.
In recent years, W.S. Dennison was experiencing recurrent driving issues, in particular with excessive wear on the clutch. The company has appointed a member of staff to monitor driving behaviour using information from the LINK and ecoPLUS unit to highlight detrimental behaviour such as harsh braking, cornering, speeding and other factors which amount to vehicle damage. Drivers are profiled using the Optidrive™ Indicator score.
