Ramage Transport has recently begun working with CMS SupaTrak to reduce the fuel bill for their general haulage fleet.
The operator who runs over 80 trucks and 90 trailers chose EcoTrak fuel saving technology as CMS SupaTrak were willing to work closely with them to develop the technology to fit the business, making it a “choice for the long term”.
Over the past few years, the haulage industry has been faced with the challenges of the struggling economy and has been particular hit by the rising fuel prices, which are currently at an all time high. According to Robin Ramage, Operations Director: “Ramage Transport understood the benefits of telemetry systems and began looking for a supplier who could offer a long term solution to monitor and manage our drivers in order to take control of our fuels costs.”
After exploring a number of solutions available, Ramage Transport chose CMS SupaTrak to install their award winning EcoTrak fuel saving technology into 44 of their DAF XF general haulage vehicles. EcoTrak records information taken via the vehicle’s CANbus, which includes speed, idling time, over revving, harsh braking and accelerating and excessive throttle use. Using this information, Ramage Transport are able to manage their drivers’ behaviour and work towards improving their operational efficiency. According to Ramage, “From the day of installation, we have seen the potential cost savings of EcoTrak”.
