Trakm8 have recognised that it is a bleak winter for haulage companies as fuel prices rise with the increase in VAT, and have come up with an innovative solution.
The user friendly SWIFT web portal allows fleet managers to see how much fuel their vehicles use – and how much is wasted through harsh driving, running idle and fuel theft.
The AA said that diesel increased to an average of 125.73p a litre in December, 14.21p a litre more expensive than a year ago. Due to these soaring prices, monitoring fuel usage is more important than ever before.
Trakm8’s solution accurately measures fuel and MPG levels, fuel usage and driver behaviour through CANbus connectivity – giving fleet managers the information they need at their finger tips.
John Watkins, CEO at Trakm8, said: ‘As the price of fuel rises, fuel management will become increasingly important for haulage companies and large fleets as they try to reduce costs.
‘Because we use technologically advanced methods we are able to accurately measure – not estimate – the readings ensuring that managers have the correct information in front of them to make decisions that will affect their bottom line.’
