Masternaut tracks over 100 million fleet miles saving £4million of fuel a month

Fuel savings
22 June, 2010

Leeds, UK, 22 June 2010 - Masternaut Three X is using its web-based vehicle tracking service to track more than 100 million fleet miles each month resulting in major fuel savings for customers. This amounts to £4 million each month and around 750,000 gallons of fuel. The Masternaut service reduces unnecessary fuel consumption through more efficient, safer and eco-friendly driving, saving an average of 10 per cent on fuel use.

"This is clear proof that vehicle tracking is an essential aid to reducing unnecessary fuel use and costs. Through better route planning, improving driving behaviour and removing waste the Masternaut service is slashing the cost of transport for our customers by more than £4 million a month. Few other technologies could claim to have such a positive impact. In addition, the decrease in fleet carbon footprints is good for society in general," says Martin Port, the company's MD.  

Two years ago, Masternaut broke new ground with its GreenerFleet environmental management tool for recording and monitoring CO2 emissions and driving behaviour. This unique product is popular with fleet operators as it provides both live and historical information showing vehicle and driver activity. Its wide adoption has led to the company launching and running the world's largest safe driving competition, which was won this year by United Biscuits truck driver David Blake. Road safety charity Brake and IAM Drive & Survive, the professional training division of the Institute of Advanced Motorists, support the competition.

"We are pleased to be at the forefront of reducing fuel costs and helping make our roads safer. Managing a fuel-efficient and safer fleet should not cost operators the earth and Masternaut holds the key to all-round savings. Our real-time technology helps manage speed, braking and idling. For professional drivers it also helps to monitor that they are taking breaks and conforming to the Working Time Directive," says Martin Port.

More 60,000 vehicles in the UK are fitted with Masternaut tracking units. The company specialises in vehicle and asset tracking technologies that help companies manage their assets more efficiently and reduce Carbon emissions. One of its clients United Biscuits managed to cut out three million unnecessary road miles using the system. Other famous clients include Harrods, Nestle, Indesit, DHL, PHS, fellow entrepreneur Duncan Bannatyne and Dragon's Den Winners Igloo Thermologistics.
