High fuel bills were on Mr. Vernon Pillay, Director of Merrod Trucking’s radar for the past five years. This is until Mr. Kelman Reddy, owner of PKR Transport told Mr. Pillay of his recent success of saving money on fuel since installing Globaltrack’s Cross-Border and Fuel Management Solution.
Michael Meijer Globaltrack’s Growth Consultant met with Mr. Pillay to discuss the company’s operational needs. Mr. Pillay wanted to see how Globaltrack’s Cross-Border and Fuel Management solution worked, and therefore decided to test it on one vehicle first.
After only one week of the vehicle running on Globaltrack’s system, Mr. Pillay could identify that the amount of fuel paid for is more than what was actually placed into the vehicle. Globaltrack assisted Merrod Trucking by further investigating this matter, and confirmed that fuel did go missing due to some filling stations that are out by a few points, and that a driver was involved in fuel going missing.
With Globaltrack’s Fuel Solution, Merrod Trucking is able to save 40 – 50 litres per vehicle per trip. Mr. Pillay avoids roaming cost when his vehicles go cross-border, because once the vehicles are out of GPRS signal, Globaltrack’s Cross-Border Solution switches over to satellite tracking. With the driver ID tags, Mr. Pillay can successfully monitor the amount of fuel consumed by each driver and see violations like speeding and idling that increases the fuel consumption.
