Managing a fleet of vehicles across the UK in the logistics sector can be a time-consuming and expensive task. Without vehicle trackers, operators are reliant on archaic processes such as ringing drivers which wastes valuable time and puts driver safety at risk. Ensuring that your company knows the whereabouts of all your vehicles using logistics tracking is paramount.
Taking advantage of vehicle tracking devices to track logistics can quickly improve business productivity and efficiency. Furthermore, it can help identify existing problems that were previously concealed from the business e.g. engine idling. Business benefits include;
Reduced fuel costs
Reduced insurance premiums
Increased productivity from drivers
More optimum route planning
Improved driver safety
JML are a household name for providing high street homeware brands. With a fleet of 128 vehicles back in March 2009, JML needed a trusted and flexible vehicle tracking solution to help them keep on top of their operations. After a spate of vehicle thefts, JML’s fleet manager Judith Fahey explored the market for a solution to combat the problem.
Judith was drawn to RAM Tracking’s simple and cost-effective vehicle tracking solution instantly. Installation would be quick and easy across their entire fleet and the software was accessible to use. JML also took advantage of the automated speeding reports to identify drivers who regularly exceeded the speed limit which could result in both driver and vehicle harm. JML also helped reduce fuel costs by using RAM Tracking to identify that a number of drivers regularly “idled” their engine, wasting expensive fuel.
“We turned our attention to fuel consumption and monitoring private usage. As a result, we saw an instant 15% drop in fuel expenditure and across our large fleet that really does add up!”
