C Butt Logistics, based in Northampton, have reduced their carbon footprint and saved money through HaulTech’s solutions.
Since acquiring their first vehicle back in 1919, C Butt Logistics have gone from strength to strength over the last 100 years and have become one of the largest transport and warehouse service providers in the Midlands. With an 80-strong fleet of vehicles, HaulTech were presented with the task of not only reducing road risk and protecting insurance premiums, but to reduce operational costs as well.
C Butt are an environmentally conscious haulier who have a passion to meet the eco-friendly needs of their customers. After exploring various options, engagement with HaulTech identified numerous solutions to allow C Butt to deliver this strong operational output both economically and ecologically.
Working with HaulTech, C Butt were able to support the needs of their business and those of their customers through a CO2 reporting tool. Accurate information on vehicle fuel burn provided the benchmark for C Butt to begin their improvement journey. The organisation used both MPG and idle running to implement further cost saving and environmental reporting that provided the tools and insight to support C Butt’s philosophy of continuous improvement.
Aside from reducing fuel consumption and saving on operational costs through full telematics, the vehicle CCTV solutions also greatly benefitted the organisation, its drivers and vulnerable road users. The company installed forward facing and near-side camera solutions with a dashboard monitor that reduced near-side blind-spots for their drivers. Through a detailed understanding of the operational, financial and safety opportunities available through HaulTech’s wide range of transport solutions the haulier benefitted from a scalable technology, available at the right price, which in turn delivered a maximum return on investment.
From an insurance perspective the last two months has seen C Butt disprove two false claims made against them. Most recently, the vehicle CCTV system provided the key evidence to prove the innocence of the C Butt driver. Thanks to the easy to use replay software, the vehicle’s near side camera revealed the actions of the third party put them at fault – which contradicted the claims being made by the third party.
Stewart Littlewood, Business Development Manager at C Butt, said the solutions have “paid for themselves” and “supported our drivers on the road, proving their innocence where we may have been unable to do so previously”. Benefitting from vehicle CCTV and full telematics, C Butts have transformed their operations. Simple and effective solutions have saved thousands in operational costs, reduced their carbon footprint and provided crucial evidence against fraudulent claims.
“We’re delighted to see the positive impact of the HaulTech solutions. Working to reduce our environmental impact is essential for us here and now we have the right solution in place to do that.”
