Glencore, one of the world’s largest global diversified natural resource companies and a major producer and marketer of more than 90 commodities, located in over 50 countries, has awarded a three year contract extension to vehicle tracking and fleet management specialist Ctrack by Inseego. The agreement will see Glencore’s fleet of 600 vehicles upgraded to Ctrack’s advanced management solution at its operations in Mpumalanga.
A client of Ctrack since 2007, Glencore chose Ctrack given their ability to efficiently streamline their safety, health, environment and quality (SHEQ) management. By utilising Ctrack’s advanced fleet monitoring software, they are able to comply with various South African government regulations, including the South African Mine Health and Safety Act. Among other aspects, the Act requires mines and related companies to identify and eliminate operational hazards so as to minimise the risks to health and safety.
As detailed reporting of operations is crucial to maximising productivity, Ctrack equipped Glencore with tracking tools that accurately record a vast range of operational data. Using Ctrack’s fleet monitoring software, Glencore is now able to interrogate vital recorded data should they need to investigate any incident involving their vehicles or drivers. The upgraded solution has been customised for Glencore’s safety requirements and monitoring of risk protocol with peripherals, such as speed zone monitoring, playing a critical role in managing their assets.
Glencore furthermore uses Ctrack’s tracking tools to measure driver behaviour. To maximise efficient production, Ctrack has appointed dedicated 24 hour on-site support technicians at Glencore’s operations.
“We have worked closely with Glencore over the last ten years. We place high emphasis on the objectives of helping to provide a working environment that is free of risk to the health and safety of employees,” said Hein Jordt, MD of Ctrack South Africa.
