Microlise has secured a £1.3m contract with Société de Transports Alimentaires et Frigorifiques (STAF), a distributor in the agri-food transport sector in France.

The Notingham-based firm, which specialises in SaaS-based transport technology for fleet operators has signed a five-year deal.

STAF, a family-run business since 1969, selected Microlise to boost its operational efficiency and customer service.

Microlise will provide solutions including detailed temperature audit reports, real-time data to enhance vehicle performance and driver behaviour and complete route visibility with precise arrival and departure times.

Key features to be implemented across STAF’s fleet include Journey Management, ePOD, Telematics and Safety, and real-time traffic navigation modules.

Embarek Mendjel, managing director of STAF, said: “STAF was looking for a partner with an ‘all-in-one’ solution to make a significant upgrade from what we were using before. The Microlise solution allows us to track our vehicles, track all of our temperature data, monitor driving behaviour, and manage all the delivery processes whilst being flexible to our needs, all within the single platform and with a single supplier.

“In addition, API management allows us to access important data for the daily management of our activities and to communicate the right information at the right times to our supermarket shipper customers. We look forward to bringing this project to life this summer, working closely with the Microlise teams.”

 Nadeem Raza, CEO of Microlise, said: “We are thrilled to partner with STAF, a respected leader in the French transport sector. Our advanced solutions will enable STAF to optimise its operations and deliver exceptional service to its customers. This partnership underscores our success in delivering against our strategic goals of international expansion and the provision of market-leading cutting-edge technology. STAF is one of the leading and most recognisable brands in the 3PL-dominated French market, providing a strong foothold to continue our expansion.”
