SPAR Kwa-Zulu Natal

From the outset, SPAR KZN’s aim was to team up with an established leading provider of fleet management, driver safety and vehicle tracking solutions.

Over-speeding and excessive idling wastes fuel and leads to cost and process inefficiencies that can affect an entire business. This is why SPAR Kwa-Zulu Natal, which services around 180 SPAR outlets using a fleet of up to 102 trucks, acquired a complete fleet management system from MiX Telematics through local channel partner, Soltrack.

The system has helped the transport and logistics company closely monitor its drivers’ behavior. Using real-time vehicle data, system-generated alerts and integrated reporting, SPAR KZN can now ensure its drivers are incentivized to meet strict fuel targets, and that they are trained adequately to minimize the risk of violations.

The ability to locate any vehicle at any time further helps to optimize delivery schedules and improves response times.

Working with MiX Telematics qwas a decision taken to standardise tracking and the reporting for the group. This has enabled SPAR to reducee speeding events and excessive idling, which has had a positive effect on fuel consumption and at the same time enables us to highlight driver training requirements. We are very pleased with the results being achieved and the potential going forward.
