On looking to improve road safety and achieve long-term savings, Colombian-based construction supplier, CEMEX, chose to work with LAP Technologies, an official MiX Telematics channel partner in Colombia. CEMEX opted for a comprehensive MiX fleet management solution that interfaces with the company’s fleet management software platform.
Since installation, CEMEX has been able to reduce hot engine shut off by nearly 500%, which has helped the company foresee any maintenance requirements and carry out the necessary preventative measures. Thanks to GPS data, fleet managers can also better co-ordinate maintenance scheduling and improve vehicle utilization and fleet efficiency.
With the help of driver behavior data, the company has implemented a reward program that has seen violations such as excessive speeding reduce from an average of 800 incidents per month to virtually zero. This has contributed to a 4% reduction in the fleet’s overall fuel consumption and fewer incidents on the road.
