Whether a fleet manager is better allocating his/her fleet through optimised route planning or improving driving behaviour through effective driver management, one of the guaranteed results is significant savings in fuel costs. Factors such as idling excessively while loading or unloading goods or passengers, speeding or accelerating harshly have an immediate effect on fuel consumption. The solutions from MiX Telematics highlight these incidents to drivers and managers alike, prompting improved driver behaviour that improves fuel efficiency. Furthermore, understanding where and when your vehicles travel can result in better management control to reduce unauthorised trips and improve planning.
A reduction in fuel usage also means lowered carbon emissions, enabling fleet operators to lessen the impact their fleets have on the environment.
KEY FEATURESMultiple features are derived from MiX Telematics range of products and services; many of these key features enable fleet customers to reduce their fuel usage among numerous other benefits.
The following features play an integral role in helping fleet operators to save on fuel costs:
Bad driving habits are unsafe, unnecessary and end up costing your business money. Together with an on-board computer and optional in-cab display system, MiX Telematics can provide your company with live information pertaining to the behaviour of your drivers. The data, which includes driver-specific information on events like ‘excessive idling’ and ‘over revving,’ is instantly transmitted from the vehicle to one of our secure data centres. Fleet and QHSE managers are able to access this data and generate reports anytime, anywhere, enabling them to take corrective action in a timely manner and implement highly effective training and incentive programmes.
Our systems allow you to monitor the fuel consumption of each of your vehicles individually, and by extension the fuel efficiency of your whole fleet, giving you an immediate return on investment.
Trip Data Recording
The following data is recorded: date and time, distance traveled, journey duration, vehicle speed, engine speed (RPM), journey departure and arrival time, driver name, driver ID, and vehicle ID. With access to trip data - anytime, anywhere - you are able to manage your fleet efficiently and effectively.
By being able to easily identify the driver closest to a customer site and assign jobs accordingly, you can more accurately predict estimated arrival times, ensure clear and specific job instructions, better manage routes and delivery schedules, and improve the experience of your customers. The blue driver code-plug, or driver tag, enables fleet operators to monitor and profile their drivers in terms of their driving behaviour, resulting in effective training programmes and a subsequent increase in safety levels.
