How VAMOSYS solved the ongoing fuel theft issue affecting more than 400 trucks operated by Mandela Group firms in Uganda?
In that around 150 -200 heavy duty vehicles travel
Uganda <-> kenya <-> Uganda
It takes the Mandela group fleet about 40 hours to travel 1400kms with a mileage of 2.4km/litre from Uganda to Kenya
As per the running time of the truck, the average cost should come to around Rs. 1 crore 24 lakhs
However, based on the mileage and distance travelled, they discovered that they are consuming more fuel.
In terms of diesel consumption, what challenges does the company face?
Rising diesel prices + Higher diesel consumption (715 litres per vehicle for 1400kms)
Fuel theft – The company suspected diesel is being stolen during every trip
Tracking Vehicle Location – Even though they used a basic GPS device, they could not locate the vehicle with any accuracy
The Company Searched for a Digital Solution to monitor their fleets 24/7
To resolve this issue sooner, the company contacted many telematics companies.
However, none of them could provide a solution that would meet their expectations.
Eventually, they contacted VAMOSYS in India through the internet.
VAMOSYS suggested GPS integrated Fuel Monitoring Software
Initially, they installed fuel sensors on 4 vehicles.
Fuel level sensors are used to discover fuel theft alert, remote tank monitoring equipment and to determine fuel consumption monitoring system for vehicles.
They saw a dramatic reduction in diesel consumption from 715 litres to 650 litres per trip.
The company can now save Rs.15-20 lakhs per month.
Eventually, they started to install fuel sensors to the rest of their vehicles.
