MAN EcoStyle driver & vehicle management system was the key factor for Peacocks in a decision to purchase new MAN tractor units – Motor Transport Reports

Peacocks, the South Wales-based High Street retail fashion chain, says MAN’s EcoStyle driver and vehicle management system was the key factor in its decision to add nine of the German manufacturers tractor units to its 65-strong fleet.

The web-based system provides analysis of driving styles and productivity, allowing driver training to be tailored to individual needs. The new batch of TGX 26.440 BLS 6×2’s – Peacock’s first MAN’s since 2005 – will be based at the firm’s central transport facility at Merthyr Tydfil, from where the 500 UK and 90 overseas stores are supplied. Movements include 3,500 containers per annum out of Southampton.

Paul Jurevicius, Microlise’s Channel Account Manager commented today:  ” This is another example of how the MAN/Microlise partnership can help fleet operators by deploying the MAN Trucknology Service – which includes the web-based Microlise telematics solution, comprising of EcoStyle driver performance reporting –  they are helped to reduce operating costs and maximise fuel savings all in one neat package as part of their truck purchase.”
