Making savings on the road

The Quartix vehicle tracking system is helping Laddaw to significantly reduce its fuel costs. The system, which is installed in 78 vehicles - mostly Mercedes Sprinters - has reduced fuel consumption by 8%.

Phil Humble, Laddaw regional operations manager, likes the system’s ease of use and effectiveness, its range of reports and their clarity. And, above all, he welcomes its ability to reduce fuel costs and monitor driving style.

Laddaw was attracted to vehicle tracking by its reputation for cutting costs, and carefully considered four systems before deciding on Quartix. The reasons were: no long-term contract, transparent pricing, simplicity, good service, and being aware Laddaw was dealing with a financially sound company.

Since equipping its fleet in January 2012, the company has seen the Quartix system not only achieve big fuel savings but also improve the health and safety of its mobile workforce, dramatically reduce instances of speeding, and eliminate unauthorised use of company vehicles. Laddaw was also impressed with the smooth installation process.
