MiX Telematics launches telematics data loggers for Oil & Gas fleet operators

Published: March 29, 2016 | Houston, TX

MiX Telematics has launched fleet telematics solutions for Oil & Gas companies that are ELD-ready.  These devices supports the FMCSA’s current requirements for performance, design and technical specifications and also reduce operating costs by $50-100 per vehicle, per month. 


Combined with the company’s recently launched MiX Journey Management -the first journey risk management solution for US Oil and Gas companies that’s integrated with a fleet management platform — MiX Fleet Manager provides everything an Oil and Gas fleet needs to improve safety, efficiency and regulatory compliance while reducing costs.

MiX Telematics’s capabilities for Oil and Gas include:

  • Compliance monitoring such as Hours of Service and IFTA State Line Crossing
  • Real-time monitoring for unsafe driver behavior, including sudden acceleration, harsh braking and speeding
  • Driver identification and driver scoring
  • Trip and vehicle utilization reports
  • Consultancy, including risk assessment and road safety strategy development
  • Targeted driver training including defensive driver training

MiX Telematics has worked in the Oil and Gas industry globally for more than a decade. The company has deep experience in developing products and services that improve safety, improve efficiency and reduce costs for Oil & Gas fleets.

MiX customer ROI analysis shows that Oil and Gas fleets can expect to save $50-100 per month, per vehicle, net (after the cost of the MiX Telematics solution). Savings are due to factors such as fuel usage reductions, improved vehicle utilization, wage savings (less time on paperwork), crash prevention/avoidance, and reduced maintenance/repair expenses.

Note: The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has announced the final Hours of Service (HOS) rule that will require commercial motor vehicle drivers to track their  Record of Duty Status (RODS) electronically, using compliant Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) versus paper logbooks.

Regardless of whether your driver already log their Hours of Service electronically or not, this ELD Mandate can have a significant impact on your business. For example, if a system fails to comply with certain standards, it could lead to fines for your company among other consequences.
