Operators don’t need to be told that fuel has possibly the biggest impact on their annual running costs.
But some might be surprised at just how big that impact is and – more importantly – that it’s nearly impossible to reduce it.
Know your fuel consumption costs
On average, fuel represents 25% of the operating costs of a small or medium van, and around 50% on a heavy truck or bus.
By reducing an average fuel bill by 10% means overall reduced operating costs. This is a worthwhile and, for some operators, an entirely possible goal.
MiX Telematics delivers quality fuel data, enabling fleet operators to identify where and how fuel savings can be made within their fleet.
Actively save fuel
There are many ways to actively save fuel and, once you understand your fuel usage, it’s easy. MiX Telematics offers solutions that could help you achieve double-figure fuel percentage savings.
We put fuel saving theory into practice by specialising in:
- Trend analysis
- Goal setting
- Vehicle utilisation
- Driver engagement
Take preventative measures
The key cause of fuel theft within commercial vehicle fleets is as a result of fuel skimming or fuel siphoning. In fact, claims are that 99% of fuel theft is carried out via these methods.
MiX offers a number of solutions to prevent fuel theft from occurring, including:
- Risk management
- Anti-siphoning devices
- Fuel cap sensors
- Real-time alerts
Keep on top of caring for your fleet
Maintenance costs as a result of vehicle wear and tear can be extremely expensive, not to mention the implications caused as a result of vehicle downtime.
But like fuel costs it's not impossible to reduce them; monitoring and changing the way vehicles are driven can have a direct impact on how often vehicle parts need replacing or serviced.
Reducing harsh driving events such as acceleration, braking and cornering can significantly reduce maintenance costs by up to an average of 20 percent. We can help you work with our data to:
- Reduce overall maintenance costs
- Closely monitor fleet activity
- Schedule downtime
- Plan efficiently
Critical Event Alerts
Ensure optimisation from all angles
Fleet running costs vary from business to business, so how do you make sure all areas within your fleet operation are being optimised?
Having access to your fleet data offers valuable insights into everyday activities that could contribute substantial savings, both financially and practically.
The data we provide can help you to:
- Optimise routes
- Optimise vehicle utilisation
- Automate paperwork routines
