Anderson Transport has recently fitted its entire fleet, which is 135 vehicles strong, with CI OmniBridge’s comprehensive Fleet Management Communicator solution, and is enjoying the benefits of being able to receive up-to-date, real time information about everything to do with the performance and maintenance of its fleet.
Anderson Transport is based in Wellington and is a long haulage company that specializes in safely and reliably delivering goods between South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and Lesotho; their goal being to deliver the same amount of goods in the same condition they were loaded in, without fail.
In order to accomplish this goal, Anderson Transport fitted their vehicles with a competitor’s product, but was not satisfied with the results it was getting as the tracking information being sent to Anderson Transport was limited.
What Anderson Transport needed was a fleet management and monitoring solution which could report on distances traveled, driver behavior, accident analysis, vehicle monitoring and vehicle tracking. Anderson Transport’s loads vary between low and high risk, and thus safety and security is also key to its business, which was another consideration that was taken into account when the company began searching for a new FM solution.
CI OmniBridge initially fitted a number of Anderson Transport’s vehicles with its FM Communicator solution on a one month trial basis, at the end of which Anderson Transport gave the go-ahead to fit all 135 vehicles in its fleet with FM Communicators, dash tampers and panic buttons.
The FM Communicator allows you to:
• Monitor your fleet in real time
• Actively or passively track your fleet
• Measure your vehicle and driver performance
• Monitor standard and user-defined driving violations like over-speeding and harsh breaking
• Record second-by-second interval (Tacho) data
• Receive servicing and licensing reminders.
Anderson Transport also elected to subscribe to the vehicle recovery service and the CI OmniBridge Bureau Service, which administers all the data received from the on board computer on their behalf, and is capable of delivering valuable management reports.
CI OmniBridge’s FM Communicator system has given Anderson Transport the functionality to track their vehicles in the event of theft, to run accurate accident analysis reports and manage routes more strategically while saving time on loading and delivering its cargo.
