Top 3 Benefits of Fuel Management for the Logistics and Mining Industry
Fuel prices have been rising steadily along with their consumption in the Australian mining and logistics sector. Trucks use a significant amount of diesel, as they move hundreds of thousands of tons across Australia. The national freight task for Australia is expected to rise by 2% each year until 2040, driving significant demand for diesel. Therefore, many companies are realising the importance of having the right fuel management system (FMS) in place. A robust FMS system helps you take control of your fleet by tracking every drop of fuel consumed. In addition, you can identify potential issues early, simplify reporting and improve fleet and fuel security.
The benefits of setting up a fuel storage infrastructure can be maximised by including a fuel management system in the mix.
Long Term Cost Efficiency
Tracking the fuel usage of each vehicle can help in monitoring any abnormal activity and identify issues in driver behaviour or non-optimised routes. Fuel management systems also help minimize fuel theft and fraudulent activities. The cost-savings add up over time and pave way for long-term fuel efficiency for organisations.
Fuel management systems give you access to valuable fuel usage data. Real-time alerts for rapid spikes of fuel level, over-fuelling, depleting fuel levels in storage tanks or unusual vehicle behaviour puts you back on the driver seat to drive towards operational efficiency.
The right fuel management systems help you keep all the relevant vehicle and fuel data centralised on the cloud. The powerful built-in reporting tools help you create custom reports within seconds and support decision making to improve your operations, manage fuel claims and tax rebates.
