Murdock Builders Merchants, an independent family-owned builders’ merchant group, is said to have reduced its fuel costs by 10% after implementing a telematics system from Masternaut.
The merchants implemented the telematics system across its fleet of 44 commercial vehicles to give ‘complete visibility’ on fuel usage and reveals that it has seen a marked improvement in driving styles and saved 10% in fuel costs thanks to the data provided by the solution.
It has also helped to increase in driver efficiency, with managers now able to distribute tasks more effectively and increase the work done by all vehicles. Furthermore, the customer relationship has been further enhanced, with the information able to provide them with accurate delivery times and updates in case of traffic delays.
Steve Towe, Chief Commercial Officer and UK Managing Director for Masternaut, said: “For independent family businesses like Murdock Builders Merchants it is vital that they deliver the best services for their customers. Telematics can become a vital tool to ensure a company is able to meet high customer expectations, and at the same time improve on driver behaviour across the fleet. Telematics enables you to provide a duty of care to your staff and produces savings and safety improvements across the fleet, which is important to any business.”
