SLASHED: BJB cut fuel bill by 15%
BJB Lift Trucks have slashed their fuel bill by 15% with help from Masternaut’s fleet management solution.
The solution has monitored the location of BJB’s fleet so workloads can be distributed according to exact vehicle positioning.
This has led to a reduction in vehicle usage, meaning that vehicle depreciation has been lowered, extending the vehicle life-cycle and reducing the requirement for maintenance or repair work.
Operational efficiency has been improved, with a cut down in driving as well as quicker depot turnaround times.
Meanwhile, the HR division have seen a number of benefits, with Masternaut’s in-depth retrospective reporting providing evidence for disciplinary matters such as speeding, while forming a comprehensive audit trail.
The finance department benefit from improved operational efficiency as these reports can be cross-checked with timesheets instantly, making expense claims easily verifiable.
A spokesperson for BJB Lift Trucks said: “We selected Masternaut above other telematics providers due to the high level of professional service they offer at a very reasonable cost, in comparison to competitors.
“Since using Masternaut’s solution, we’ve seen benefits across the whole business – not just fleet operations.
“With 80% of our team out on the road, it’s vital we keep track of their locations and without Masternaut we couldn’t have done it.
“The team are always on hand to advise and support us whenever needed, and we look forward to working with Masternaut in the future to introduce further innovation to our business.”
Martin Hiscox, CEO and Chairman of Masternaut, added: “It’s great to see that as a result of our work together, we’ve helped oversee a 15% cut in fuel costs businesswise at BJB Lift Trucks.”
“With the bulk of BJB Lift Truck’s workforce mobile, we knew it was essential for fleet managers to have full visibility of their fleet at all times.
“Our solution has ensured this has been the outcome and we’re looking forward to seeing how we can further cut costs and improve efficiency with BJB Lift Trucks.”
