With four sawmills, 16,000 hectares of planted timber and their own transport fleet consisting of inbound and outbound vehicles, Tekwani Sawmills needed a fleet management solution to effectively monitor their fleet at all times throughout the day. They needed productivity information to minimize manual capture work, and required the system to be robust and efficient. MiX Telematics, in collaboration with channel partner Compass FM, installed an all-in-one solution that encompassed fleet management, stolen vehicle recovery, bureau service and 24/7 eyes on screen as an option. Just eight weeks after the first installation, the customer experienced 100% uptime. With fleet data captured and available in real-time, Tekwani Sawmills could also monitor and evaluate driver behavior, track hours of service and distances traveled as well as produce fast, reliable HR reports.
