Partnership approach to effective fuel management
Oct 26, 2011
Leading fuel card and fuel management solutions provider Keyfuels has joined forces with vehicle tracking specialists CMS Supatrak to help fleet operators manage and monitor their fuel more effectively.
"Record fuel prices are putting increasing pressure on fleet managers to develop fuel management programmes that will make a significant impact on their operating costs and ultimately, their bottom line," commented Alex Harper, Head of Sales at Keyfuels.
"With fuel often accounting for as much as 40 per cent of overall operating costs, it highlights just how vital this is. Our partnership with CMS Supatrak is specifically designed to help operators implement an efficient and cost-effective fuel management strategy that makes real long term savings."
Through the partnership, fleet managers can take advantage of Keyfuels industry leading fuel cards, which are saving businesses thousands of pounds a year compared to national average pump prices. The company operates the largest wholesale priced network in the UK, backed up by state-of-the-art management reporting to ensure operators have up-to-date information on fuel usage and the fuel efficiency of their drivers.
CMS Supatrak offer innovative fuel saving technology that can reduce fuel costs by a further 20 per cent. Its EcoTrak solution uses CANbus technology to not only report on where a vehicle is, but how it is being driven. Information gathered is recorded every 60 seconds and using this, a profile of the driver and their style can be derived. This includes real time MPG, speed, idling time, harsh braking and accelerating, over revving and excessive throttle use.
Jason Airey, MD at CMS Supatrak, said: "Working with Keyfuels gives our customers a total solutions approach. Keyfuels report on how much fuel is being drawn and we can show how this is being used, helping to save on fuel costs, improve driving practices and offer carbon reductions. To complement this and add value to the service we provide, we also offer training programmes to improve driver behaviour."
