Challenge

Growing business

The growth of Amey’s waste business has resulted in the adoption of multiple systems.  This made it hard to compare data or realise synergies through the centralisation of services.

As a result, the decision was taken to implement a new IT system that would support the current business and also be capable of adapting to the fast-changing waste and technology markets. The new system needed to allow for significant modernisation in the way Amey managed its business, including the use of mobile applications and a dedicated web portal.

Move to a single Enterprise Management system

Amey’s AMCS Enterprise Management system is now used by over 35 members of the team across 6 sites and is capable of managing all of its collection, processing, and municipal waste functions. Its wide range of functionality includes customer management, weighbridge and mobile devices. It also incorporates a detailed reporting capability enabling the production of bespoke reports and operational dashboards, combining data by service, business, or waste stream.

AMCS’s vehicle planning and route optimisation software means routes can now be adapted whilst vehicles are on the road, Thereby improving efficiency and reducing missed lifts. It also means that work in the future is based on the work of the past, incorporating the knowledge of drivers and operational teams
into future plans. The use of mobile devices enables real-time reporting and sharing of information.
As well as allowing routing updates to be sent direct to job lists, this also significantly reduces the resolution time for customer issues such as missed lifts.

Results

The visualisation of vehicle routes means that inefficiencies can be easily identified, and vehicles re-routed. In addition to addressing overlapping routes, segments with low collection densities are also clearly visible. It’s estimated that re-routing has reduced fleet mileage by 7%, cutting both fuel costs and emissions.

The visualisation of vehicle routes means that inefficiencies can be easily identified, and vehicles re-routed. In addition to addressing overlapping routes, segments with low collection densities are also clearly visible. It’s estimated that re-routing has reduced fleet mileage by 7%, cutting both fuel costs and emissions. It is now
possible to view and interrogate the profitability of every vehicle and route, considering the revenue earned and all the variable cost elements.
