Oil and gas fleet management solutions

One of the main reasons fleet managers are turning to fleet management systems, regardless of the size of their fleet, is the significant savings they get in fuel expenses. By tracking fuel consumption across trips, analyzing road conditions and driving trends, MiX Telematics helps you find the causes of fuel wastage in your fleet. You get a detailed picture of your fleet's daily trip expense trends. You can use this information to create a plan to reduce or eliminate unnecessary expenses.

Tracking these factors can help you reduce fuel expenses and root out other unnecessary expenses:

  • Trip duration
  • Number of stops
  • Acceleration rate
  • Idling time
  • Road and traffic conditions
  • Driving behavior
  • Location and route

Better Driver Communication

It is not uncommon for oil and gas production to involve several different facilities from the extraction site to the refinery to final product delivery. Your fleet may be spread between several locations at the same time. In these instances, communication is essential. With MiX Telematics, you can keep in touch with your fleet wherever they are.

  • Drivers can communicate with each other and fleet managers
  • Fleet managers can communicate with all drivers at once
  • Warnings and notifications can be sent to managers and drivers

Stay on Top of Your Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance keeps your vehicles on the road longer and your drivers safer. But, keeping track of and inspecting hundreds of vehicles across oil and gas fields is almost impossible for fleet managers. These vehicles run long distances and travel through different terrain, often rugged, that takes its toll on them.

But, in such a volatile industry, safety definitely comes first, and cannot be compromised in any way. MiX Telematics fleet management system monitors the maintenance and upkeep of the health of your vehicles. It reports on their status so that you can schedule the appropriate maintenance on the right schedule.

Oil and Gas Fleet Safety and Risk Management

oil and gas telematics solutions

Oil and gas fleet risk management is all about safety. Oil and gas fleets often operate in rugged, difficult terrain. Safety hazards can pop up unpredictably, which means you have to take precautions to make sure your working environment is safe. With an oil and gas fleet management system from MiX Telematics, you can be sure you will get increased safety with no compromises on efficiency. In addition, you'll get alerts on safety policies and compliance regulations for different vehicles and jurisdictions. That's a win-win for everybody.

  • Live stream information on events and messages to and from your drivers
  • Real-time alerts on hazardous weather conditions
  • Real-time view of a vehicle's position and which driver is behind the wheel
  • Information on driving direction, speed, driving violations, and past trips
  • Hours of Service (HOS) solution to staying compliant with FMCSA's design, performance and technical specifications
  • Status of wear and tear on vehicles in your fleet
  • Driver scoring, fuel use, event violations, and cost analysis reports
  • Location, movement, utilization, and trip reports

MiX Telematics fleet management software reduces instances of negligence and alerts you to hazardous conditions that put your fleet operation at risk. Our electronic logging device (ELD) was specifically designed to manage and maintain your oil and gas fleet's compliance with the HOS rule by tracking your drivers' RODS electronically, making paper logbooks obsolete.

ELD Mandate for Oil and Gas Risk Management

As an oil and gas fleet manager, you have a unique challenge. Your fleet must comply with the ELD mandate, but you also need a solution that is built for your industry. ELDs fitted by MiX Telematics meet those requirements.

  • Secure and tamper-resistant
  • Location data captured at ignition, when the engine is turned off, whenever the vehicle moves, and at least every hour
  • Connected and synced to the vehicle's engine
  • Grid/graph format displays driver information as it changes throughout the day
  • Errors and malfunctions within the HOS system detected and recorded automatically
  • Data transfer to enforcement officers via USB, when needed

We make complying with the EDL Mandate as painless as possible. In addition, you get many benefits such as:

  • Reduced paperwork – according to the FMCSA, an ELD can save drivers 19 hours a year by eliminating the paperwork involved in filling out a RODS. It also eliminates the need to keep paper logs.
  • Better planning capability – since you can instantly find your drivers' status whenever you need it, you can better plan their time and their routes.
  • Lower crash rates – drivers who use electronic logs have measurably lower crash rates than those who don't use electronic logs. This also includes preventable crash rates.
  • Compliance made easy – when drivers and businesses comply with the ELD mandate, they can take advantage of other electronic compliance solutions such as the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA).
