Freeway keeps Suttons’ fleet rolling

Fleet maintenance software company Freeway is working with global logistics and supply chain specialist Suttons Group, which operates a fleet of 500 vehicles and 1,000 trailers across the UK.

Suttons is using Freeway’s fleet maintenance system to coordinate its four workshops across the UK and an extensive third party repair agent network. 

The Freeway system is used to schedule all the inspections, servicing, MOTs and defect repairs for Suttons’ fleet of trucks, tankers, and trailers based in 40 depots nationwide.

Halime Civcar, Fleet & Compliance Manager at Suttons Tankers Ltd. said: “We use Freeway to schedule workshop activities, fleet maintenance and inspection cycles, capturing costs and producing sales invoices.

“The recording of workshop and asset history has been very useful in our work, especially the ‘recurring defect’ feature that prompts the investigation for warranty and quality of workmanship.”

“A daily communication with Freeway uploads and populates a purchase order with all parts bought, also updating any associated job card. The automation of this process has saved time within our workshop administration team, and has also reduced input errors and speeded up invoice matching.” 

Patrick Tandy, Managing Director of Freeway said: “Suttons Group has been at the forefront of new developments in fleet maintenance and their vision has been a real driving force in the evolution of Freeway’s software. We’re delighted that our partnership with Suttons is continuing.” 

Suttons is a family owned business that has operated for 90 years. The company entered the specialist bulk gas and chemicals sector almost 50 years ago, and was the first company to offer electrical heating on tank containers.

Suttons operates internationally with key business centres in New Jersey, Houston, Chicago, Widnes, Antwerp, Ludwigshafen, Paris, Kuantan, Singapore, Shanghai, Tokyo and Khobar.
