Lalgy Transportes, which deploys a fleet of 730 vehicles, including tank trucks, throughout the Mozambique territory and surrounding countries, says it's implementing a comprehensive telematics solution from MiX Telematics to manage its operations.
Headquartered in Matola in the Maputo Province, the Lalgy Group was established in the 1980s, and the company has since transformed along with the development of Mozambique itself. Apart from transportation, the company also does truck sales, civil construction and stone quarry mining.
The group’s diverse fleet includes 300 super-link side tippers, more than 200 flat-deck trucks, and fuel tankers and low-bed trailers to transport abnormal cargo. The company can transport various goods of different sizes and types, from construction equipment to food products, often to remote areas.
“The safety of our drivers and our vehicles are of paramount importance to the company,” said Aly Lalgy, managing director of Lalgy Transportes. “That is why we have selected MiX’s premium fleet solution and additional peripherals and services. These extensive capabilities, tools and reports will help maximize return on investment.”
MiX Telematics provides fleet and mobile asset management tools. Lalgy selected MiX’s premium fleet management solution, MiX said, including MiX Vision, the MiX Track and React service, Journey Management and in-cab communication devices.
“We are proud to have been selected to provide Lalgy Transportes with a full telematics solution to optimize its logistics and operational efficiencies across its diverse and extensive fleet,” said Gert Pretorius, managing director of MiX Telematics Africa. “This is once again confirmation of the value we can add to such transport specialists throughout Africa, allowing them to focus on their core business, whilst reducing cost and risk.”
