Buffaload Logistics have recently upgraded their fuel management system as they continue to improve their carbon footprint.
The award-winning chilled distribution company based in Cambridgeshire, with depots in Avonmouth, Crewe, and Skelmersdale, have used Merridale fuel management systems since their first Auditor GX was installed in 2012. With this upgrade, they now use Merridale’s MX-M, alongside web-based software FuelWorks, to monitor refuelling and report on usage across all four of their depots.
Our biggest requirement from a fuel management system was to view live data and report on our usage, spend and environmental impact. With all four of our depots now using the same reliable system, we are in a much better position to do this accurately.
Buffaload’s Michael Cadman said “Our biggest requirement from a fuel management system was to view live data and report on our usage, spend and environmental impact. With all four of our depots now using the same reliable system, we are in a much better position to do this accurately.”
As part of the upgrade, Buffaload also invested in a Merridale MX-T tank gauge. As standard, a Merridale tank management system features a highly accurate gauge with precision pressure probes and overfill sensors.
By transferring the data to the Merridale FuelWorks web-based service, via the fuel management integration, you can benefit further from fuel stock prediction, automatic delivery detection, low-level warnings, and order prompts, all accessible on any web-enabled device.
Merridale’s tank management systems can now also include stock depletion detection, to alert you immediately, via SMS, of an unexpected drop in fuel level. This means that you will be alerted to any severe leak or theft from the tank that occurs, irrespective of where you are at the time.
