Gopi Transport is handling logistics operations for steel Industries. Currently, they are handling 30+ trailer fleets for operations. Gopi, the proprietor of Gopi transport has 15 years of logistics experience and 10+ years of experience in the steel business.
How Gopi Transport met VAMOSYS?
Kings Lee, the transport head of GOPI transport was looking for a fuel monitoring system to reduce fuel pilferage and diesel theft. He was inquiring about the best Fuel Solution with proper reporting software. One of his friends suggested him VAMOSYS Fuel monitoring solution.
“We are installing the Fuel monitoring solution because we are not able to handle the diesel theft”, says Kings lee.
The fuel monitoring system need is increasing since the increase in fuel prices and because of low salaries & allowances, driver steals the fuel either or sell the fuel saved in every trip.
Gopi transport got the introduction of VAMOSYS because of genuine feedbacks and reputation in the Fuel monitoring system in the Logistics market.
“I chose VAMOSYS fuel monitoring solution because I liked the critical feature, where it highlights the diesel theft precisely”, adds further.
Why we are installing a Fuel monitoring system in our Fleet?
Every month we are filling 4000 to 5000 liters of fuel for our fleet. Depending upon the trip the fuel consumption and mileage differ, Gopi Transport proprietor explains.
In reality, most of the transporters provide excess diesel fuel for trips. Say, for example, the truckloads from Chennai to unload in Trichy and return from Trichy, for this the usual fuel consumption level based on vehicle mileage is 280 liters but transporters provide fuel of 300 liters. Drivers take this excess fuel and sell it in the market.
Drivers are the real heroes in the logistics business, they take care of the consignment and most of the time travel at night. We sleep at night but they all work at night, Gopi encourages drivers hardship.
On installing a fuel monitoring system, the transporters can check the live data of fuel level in the vehicle, fuel filling data and receive alert notifications if any fuel pilferage or theft takes place. The fuel monitoring system installation saves 25% of the fuel revenue and the logistics operator get the return on investment (ROI) in less than 6 months.
Gopi recalls one of the incidents which took place in his truck yard, “one of our drivers took the 40 liters of diesel from the truck and took the diesel in jerry can to sell the fuel in the market. The incidence was noted by fellow drivers and we have proof of GPS data where he went to sell the diesel fuel.
This incident has made him check what is the solution to prevent fuel theft and his transport head, Kings Lee started the hunt to find the proper solution for fuel monitoring, resulting in meeting the VAMOSYS team and installation fuel sensors on trucks.
Success lies in how well you handle your business and emotions parallel. Business is all about handling the emotions, situations too.
