Vehicle tracking and fleet management specialist Ctrack recently enabled long-haul transporter Massyn Vervoer to identify diesel theft and fraud within the company.

Though Ctrack has been tracking Massyn Vervoer’s fleet for the past 15 years, the transport company recently identified a need for an advanced telematics information and fleet management service. Accordingly, Ctrack introduced its Fleet Monitoring Services, a full outsource of fleet control room activities.

Dedicated fleet controllers support Massyn Vervoer’s entire fleet from Ctrack’s national Support Centre, with 24/7 eyes-on-screen fleet and route monitoring and response services to incident alerts and alarms. The services include highly proficient hindsight, insight and foresight data analytics and reporting for streamlining fleet operations.

Using Ctrack’s Fleet Analytics, Massyn Vervoer was able to validate toll road transactions, which identified a driver who was regularly abusing a fuel card for non-work purposes. On another occasion, the reports backed by real-time fleet and route monitoring, were able to pinpoint a driver who was illegally off-loading fuel.

Further, the Ctrack solution enabled Massyn Vervoer to monitor its fleet’s speeding events. As a result, the company has virtually eliminated speed limit violations, bringing incidents down from 200 a month to just two.

“Fuel can account for as much as 25% for a long haulage trucking company and the rise in fuel theft and fraud poses a serious threat to transporters’ operating profits. In this regard, it undeniably benefitted Massyn Vervoer to invest in our Fleet Monitoring Services to help eliminate these types of risks,” said Hein Jordt, MD of Ctrack Fleet Management Solutions.

“Our newest division helps customers use the vast amounts of data generated from their fleet management systems. It provides information for critical decision making, from cost savings to future investments. Our developers are constantly growing and improving the model to best suit our client needs.”
