  • 16 new generation road trains in operations in the mining sector
  • Unitrans Agriculture and Mining owns and operates 30 ultra heavy-duty road trains
  • 22 000 tons of product transported daily – 75 to 125 tons per trip
  • Driver behaviour is closely linked to the sustainability of efficiencies and monitored to ensure that the benefits are carried through on a long-term basis
  • 36% decrease in fuel cost per ton of product transported

STRATEGIC DRIVERS:

Investment in infrastructure and technology

Fuel

IMPLEMENTATION:

Invested R180m in fleet upgrades and new technology land trains at key mining contracts.

BENEFIT:

Improved efficiencies on cost/km, saving in fuel costs, increased margin, reduction of CO₂e emissions.

RESULT:

With the new technology land trains and controlled driving behaviour, significant savings on fuel usage was achieved. Fuel usage decreased by 36% per ton of product transported (compared to a standard road legal combination), which directly translates into CO₂e reductions. These savings are shared with customers, resulting in Unitrans Agriculture and Mining becoming a preferred long-term supplier with a proven ability to reduce costs.
