The World Food Program (WFP), a United Nations organization, is extending its long-term relationship with Chevin Fleet Solutions and implementing the supplier’s web-based fleet management system across all of the 82 nations the WFP operates in. The rollout will deliver improved visibility of fleet requirements, streamline efficiencies, and reduce cost.

FleetWave, the web-based application designed by Chevin Fleet Solutions, will be rolled out in Uganda during July 2010 and internationally aby the end of 2010.

Traditionally, the WFP has relied upon a paper-based fleet management process, with countries such as Sudan and Afghanistan being covered by RoadBase, Chevin’s desktop fleet management application designed for smaller or less-complex fleets.

After meeting with the WFP in Rome during November 2009, Chevin Fleet Solutions immediately began developing the FleetWave system, achieving a short turn-around time and successfully engineering the software to the specific requirements of the WFP. The addition of a “specific trips” module means that FleetWave will now enable fleet logistics teams in each country’s office to input data such as vehicle routing, journey duration, and fuel consumption. A “way bills” module gives fleet and logistics managers access to an audit trail of when and where deliveries have been successfully dropped off, providing chain-of-custody records for all aid donations.

FleetWave will not only promote consistent working practices on a global scale, and open up communication channels to provide clearer visibility, but also will give drivers, engineers, and fleet managers access to real-time data anywhere in the world via a web connection.

Chevin traveled to Uganda and Ghana recently in preparation for the launch, meeting with representatives from some of the 82 countries covered by the WFP for a train-the-trainer program on how to use the system.

After implementation, the WFP and Chevin will meet to discuss possible enhancements to the system. Options include French translation for use in the WFP’s French-speaking countries, an offline version of the system that can be updated remotely where Internet access is unavailable and then automatically replicated into the live system upon return, interfaces to tracking systems, and a currency exchange rate module.
