Decrease Fuel and Wage Costs
From humble beginnings over 30 years ago with company founder Geoff Simmonds running a single tipper servicing the local building trades, Simmonds Transport is now the most progressive and ambitious transport company in the region. Based in Telford, Shropshire in the West Midlands, they provide transport and warehousing solutions throughout the UK and Ireland.
They needed a fleet tracking and management tool that would help reduce operational expenses. They knew that by reducing transit times and out-of-route mileage they could lower their fuel costs over time. They also needed to eliminate unauthorised vehicle use.
Since fitting Fleetmatics to their fleet, Simmonds Transport has seen tremendous savings in both fuel and wage costs. Overtime costs have decreased and personal vehicle use has been almost eliminated. They have also increased productivity as the drivers are now more accountable.
“We have saved over £48,000 in Diesel costs and £25,000 in wage costs in our first year with Fleetmatics.”
