Masternaut helps BJB Lift Trucks drive a 15% saving in fuel costs

BJB Lift Trucks is using Masternaut’s fleet management solution to monitor the location of its fleet and distribute workloads accordingly.

BJB Lift Trucks says it has seen widespread benefits across the business, since installation, with Masternaut’s solution giving it the ability to distribute workloads according to exact vehicle positioning.

This has produced a 15% drop in fuel cost through cutting down on the unnecessary time vehicles spend out on the road.

The knock-on effect from this has been 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 also been improved, with a cut down in driving as well as quicker depot turnaround times, meaning that each member of staff is fully utilised throughout the working day.

The HR division has seen a number of benefits, with Masternaut’s retrospective reporting providing evidence for disciplinary matters such as speeding, while forming a comprehensive audit trail.

Meanwhile, it says its finance department has benefitted from improved operational efficiency as these reports can be cross-checked with timesheets instantly, making expense claims easily verifiable.

Martin Hiscox, CEO and chairman of Masternaut, said: “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.”
