VKB partners with Nashua to streamline fleet operations
The VKB Group has been servicing the local agricultural sector for over a century. Initially focused on supporting the primary needs of farmers, the enterprise has since evolved into a group of companies with a unique composition of brands that makes the group a significant player in the agribusiness sector.
In an era of increasing logistics challenges, VKB understood the importance of leveraging fleet management systems to improve efficiency and productivity. VKB needed to maintain awareness and increased visibility into their fleet operations and vehicle safety.
VKB recognised the industry experience and knowledge Nashua would bring to the development of their fleet management strategy. Nashua conducted an in-depth assessment to gain a thorough understanding VKB’s business processes. This was a crucial step in ensuring that we choose a solution that is customised and scalable to their needs.
Installing surveillance and dashboard cameras to record incidents during a vehicle’s journey
Vehicle tracking (stolen vehicle recovery services) to track the movements and/or status of a vehicle or fleet of vehicles
Telematics to monitor driver behaviour in real-time
In a testimonial featuring VKB Bethlehem’s Chief Financial Officer, Markus Mittermaier, he discusses the company’s first-hand experience working with Nashua for their fleet management implementation. Mittermaier explains: “I think that Nashua certainly gave us a solution that was not ‘off-the-shelves.’ They came and understood our problems and needs. This was our initial vision — and we are very satisfied with the solutions offered.”
Nashua’s fleet monitoring systems were able to fully deliver on minimising VKB’s vehicle investment risks. As Rikus Krüger, Sales Director at Nashua Bethlehem, puts it: “There was no other company that could give them the full product basket that Nashua could. It’s difficult to put a true value to that. That’s a massive advantage that Nashua has.”
It’s been our privilege to step in and make VKB’s fleet management simpler than ever before. Now they can focus on running their day-to-day operations with the peace of mind that their entire fleet is being expertly managed.
