“Results have been fantastic,” Hodgson said. Mistik uses telematics to support its overall commitment to practicing responsible trucking in a cost-effective manner. The Geotab fleet management solution has enabled Mistik to fulfill its obligations to the Ministry of Highways, while giving them more accurate information about its log haul operation. With reported data on haul distance and travel time from the telematics system, Mistik can also
determine more accurate haul rates.
For Mistik, the telematics benefit extends from operations, to
compliance, and beyond. “The system has also allowed us to
conduct more accurate accident investigation and utilize available
information to respond to public complaints,” Hodgson said.
The company started using Geotab’s fleet management solution in 2014 and is pleased with the outcome. With Geotab, Mistik can monitor fleet vehicles even in remote locations which helps enhance driver safety. The real-time information gathered through satellite has given them coverage in areas where cell phone signals are sparse. The sorting feature available in Geotab’s system has been a huge improvement over the previous system used.
With telematics, Mistik is now able to quickly and efficiently gather exact information like speeding, missed load-check stops, location of operations, fuel consumption, and driver habits. Achieving greater control over fleet management means that Mistik can spend more time focusing on managing operations and the sustainability of the forest.
