In the cold chain, temperature is critical and an integral part of delivering a top quality service. With deliveries including high-value products and, in some cases, items such as life-saving medicines, it is crucial to know if potentially damaging temperature hazards have occurred at any point during the supply process. In order to support operators across Europe, MiX Telematics' Temperature Watch solution autonomously measures the temperature inside temperaturecontrolled vehicles to ensure adherence to cold chain specifications.
When it comes to using technology to benefit its customers, Go North East unquestionably operates at the leading-edge.
If you saw Route One magazine's recent and detailed review of the systems employed by Go North East (GNE) to meet the service-levels demanded by its passengers and the Traffic Commissioners, you will have an appreciation of the complexity of modern bus operations.
When Budapest Transport Company BKV decided to investigate how telematics could help its business, it decided to employ the consultancy services of MiX Telematics' Hungarian channel partner, Szanyo.
MiX Telematics Polish channel partner Drabpol help clients to achieve 32% reduction in idling and 24% reduction in fuel consumption.

MiX Telematics, Prodot and Kienzle join forces to deliver a truly integrated solution in a niche segment.
Combining the resources and building a strong partnership between all three companies resulted in the outcome of a slick and scalable telematics platform, which is also adjustable to sustainably support specific processes.
By December 2015 – just nine months after the solution was first put to use – Reading Buses reported a 27% reduction in harsh braking and a 44% reduction in harsh acceleration across their fleet. Since fuel consumption is directly linked to the way in which vehicles are driven, it came as no surprise when their overall fuel consumption dropped by 2%, too.
The introduction of a telematics solution brings challenges as well as many benefits. In particular, drivers may resist change and have concerns about how the new technology will affect them. At MiX Telematics, we believe involving employees in the process is key when it comes to building and maintaining trust.
Here's how to do it:
Growth in construction sector and cold chain driving telematics take-up.
As European transport operators accept the benefits of telematics, the focus is shifting onto new applications.
MiX Telematics, one of the world's leading providers of telematics solutions, has conducted a detailed study into present and future telematics trends within the commercial vehicle industry across four key European markets; UK, France, Germany and Spain. In summary, the study shows that as the market continues to mature, operators are progressively seeking new and innovative ways in which to maximise the return on their investments in telematics.
