The FleetBoard telematics system enables companies to remotely track vehicle movements whilst providing such data as speed and distance travelled, as well as weight recordings, fuel consumption and even the actual fuel level of a truck. Most significantly, FleetBoard provides customers with a full performance analysis of a fleet, its vehicles and its drivers by capturing data such as pedal movement, idle fuel consumption, engine brake usage and behavior of driver gear change operation, which is crucial information to determine areas of development in order to increase operative efficiency, reduce costs and further extend maintenance intervals.

Khalid Cement Industries Complex is one of Qatar’s leading suppliers of complete concrete solutions with a 200,000 square meter main production plant just outside Doha, Qatar and additional plants in Industrial Area, Dukhan, Dafna and RasLaffan.
