Any reputable anti-fuel-theft system should monitor fuel consumption, for
both fuel theft prevention and fuel efficiency. Continuous monitoring of fuel
consumption and appropriate driver training can save 10% on fuel costs. With
diesel thieves being capable of stealing up to €1,000 worth of fuel, a
comprehensive system that can save fuel costs and stop diesel theft is well
worth the investment for any company that owns a fleet of vehicles.
Investing in the right system is exactly what one transport company in
Southern Germany did after a series of fuel theft incidents. The company, who
wishes to remain anonymous for security reasons, chose ENAiKOON’s
anti-fuel-theft system to catch their diesel thief. They experienced 10 cases
in an isolated truck transport site, where they installed surveillance cameras.
Even with cameras, the thief continued his work and the company was unable to
identify the offender. Finally, the local police stepped in and monitored the
site for several weeks, but even that was unsuccessful.
Their last resort was the use of ENAiKOON’s telematics solution. The system
was installed on their trucks in the summer of 2010. The results were
immediate. Shortly after the installation, the company’s management received a
text message (SMS) alert, informing them of an acute deceleration of fuel from
one of their trucks. Knowing that the thief caught the bait, management
contacted the police right away, whom were able to catch the crook in
The ability to monitor remotely and in real time using their smartphone has
allowed this company to react fast enough to stop the crime. ENAiKOON can also
help with other fleet management needs, such as vehicle maintenance, driving
behaviour, dispatcher communication, and driver coordination. Contact
