Borg Manufacturing

Based in New South Wales, Australia, Borg Manufacturing is a leading manufacturer of decorative wood panel surfaces and made-to-order kitchen cabinet doors and benchtops. Despite being an extremely successful operation, Borg was aware of a high rate of unsafe driving and vehicle rollovers – especially in deliveries that took vehicles over hills and through forests. Airco, a MiX Telematics channel partner based in Sydney, recommended MiX Fleet Manager, a fully integrated fleet management solution that would help to meet the company’s safety, efficiency and compliance needs.

By combining an in-vehicle monitoring system (IVMS) with MiX Vision, MiX’s in-cab video offering, Borg Manufacturing could immediately start monitoring driver behavior, driving hours and vehicle performance in a bid to improve their business outcomes. Implementation began in February 2015 and, by March, the system had already started showing a return on investment.

In terms of RAG scoring, green (safe) scores went from 45% of total km driven to 99% in just six months. Red (unsafe) scores dropped from 22.49% to 0.11% in just seven months, and amber scores dropped from 33.01% to 4.52% over a total reporting period of 16 months.

The company also set up geo-fences in areas where rollovers had happened on a regular basis and dropped speed limits in those areas from 60 km/h to 50 km/h. Drivers had no choice but to slow down, with the result being a 100% reduction in rollovers.

Our crash rates and associated repair and maintenance costs have dropped considerably, ensuring a safer workplace.
