In 2018, TransContainer extensively promoted efficient energy use control and installed light sensors. Fluorescent light fixtures were replaced with LED ones in the Privolzhskaya, Kuibyshev, Ural, West Siberian, Zabaikalskaya and Far Eastern branch offices. The West Siberian Branch implemented the Webasto system for heating the driver’s cabin during idle hours in the winter season.
Remote Terminal Monitoring
For better fuel control, the Company rolled out a system of remote road vehicle operation monitoring.
The system helps to control the performance of technical equipment by means of GPS navigation enabling online diagnostics of the equipment by the operator. Real-time monitoring and metering of fuel consumption are possible as well. The system is also used for more efficient and seamless operation of vehicles (dispatching). Smart vehicle route planning and installation of fuel level sensors translate into a significant reduction in empty mileage and fuel consumption. Most of our fleet (154 tractor units), except for the recently purchased vehicles, is equipped with remote monitoring devices.
