CEMEX Colombia

CEMEX is one of the largest suppliers of cement, concrete and aggregate in Colombia and currently has customers in over 50 countries. With an operating fleet of 350 vehicles, CEMEX recognized that small changes to their employees’ driving styles coupled with new ways of managing fleet maintenance could improve road safety and achieve significant savings in the long term.

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.
