Creating safer, smarter fleets in the UAE

On 19 November, MiX Telematics and FMSi hosted the Safer, Smarter Fleets Forum at the world-class Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort. The event drew around 50 attendees from across the UAE and Oman. In the interest of knowledge sharing and networking, a few of MiX’s customers (which included Baker Hughes, ADNOC and Continental Tires) spoke to an engaged audience about how the right telematics solution has helped to increase driver engagement, safety and awareness. Speakers from MiX informed attendees on how to increase their fleet’s road safety and what tools are available to achieve this goal. Overall, this event was a great opportunity for speakers and attendees to exchange valuable information and collaborate in an effort to improve road safety across the UAE.



MiX’s Electronic Logging Device (ELD) solution gets the green light in North America

Good news for companies looking for an ELD solution for their fleets. Integrated Risk Solutions, an expert in transportation risk management, evaluated MiX’s Electronic Logging Device (ELD) solution and has concluded that it meets all of the current FMCSA technical specifications in respect of the ELD mandate. MiX’s ELD solution is already on the FMCSA’s list of registered ELD providers. However, since vendors self-certify for this list, MiX wanted additional review to ensure that they are 100% compliant whilst also providing a top-quality solution to customers.

Crusader Logistics achieves safety and efficiency goals with MiX Telematics

Crusader Logistics is a distribution company that transports valuable cargo all over South Africa and further up into Africa while also offering warehousing and fleet leasing solutions. In order to help Crusader Logistics improve their efficiency and the safety of their cargo, they adopted the MiX Vision in-cab video solution. This system was chosen in an effort to monitor driver behaviour more closely and have access to incident-related footage. Within only a year of implementing MiX’s solution, Crusader Logistics saw positive results in their fleet’s performance on the road.

MiX brings joy by pledging Santa Shoeboxes to underprivileged children

The Santa Shoebox Project is a charity that gives underprivileged children the opportunity to receive a Christmas present where, under other circumstances, they likely would not. Individuals pledge at least one shoebox each and is assigned a child to whom their box will be given. Boxes usually include soap, clothing, educational supplies, toys, sweets and more. Once all boxes are assembled and dropped off by donors, Santa Shoebox volunteers hand them out to the lucky recipients.

MiX Telematics has always been a big proponent of helping those in need and building up communities, and so, employees from Stellenbosch, Midrand and KwaZulu-Natal donated a total of 342 shoeboxes to this project. It was a joy to see MiX employees come together as a unit and make childrens’s dreams come true. Thank you to all of those who donated!
