United Biscuits
16 July, 2010

Leeds, UK, 12 July 2010 - Masternaut Three X and Jaffa Cake and Hula Hoop manufacturer United Biscuits (UB) are both celebrating following three outright wins at the Motor Transport Awards 2010. UB scooped wins in the ATS Euromaster sponsored Environment Award, Freight Best Practice Low Carbon & Efficiency Award and the Own-account Operator of the Year Award. The company was also a named finalist in the Customer Care, Safety in Operation and Training awards.

Rob Wright, National Distribution Controller for UB, commented:
"Winning three prizes at the Motor Transport Award is a huge achievement for us - and is a cause for real celebration right across our business. In particular, it's fantastic to be recogised for our work towards lowering our carbon footprint and improving the sustainability of our transport operations. The awards are a real credit to the  dedication and commitment of our distribution services team. We'd also like to thank partners such as Masternaut for helping us to meet our carbon and fuel reduction targets."

UB uses the Masternaut web-based vehicle tracking service for its truck and trailer fleet. This gives complete visibility and live mapping of vehicles as they deliver around the UK and has helped UB cut out 3 million unnecessary road miles. The system is saving the company £200,000 each year. The Masternaut Three X solution uses Microsoft® Bing Maps mapping technology for real-time, accurate location and efficient management of the vehicles. This optimises the use of resources, makes for improved driving styles and fuel consumption, reduces unnecessary engine idling, improves driver safety and supports UB's green credentials.
