Archrock has the largest natural gas contract compression service fleet in the U.S., according to the company. While its total fleet size is confidential, a company spokesperson confirmed the solution was launched across its entire fleet in light-, medium-, and heavy-duty trucks.
“MiX solutions are an integral part of Archrock’s Goal Zero initiative, enabling us to monitor driver safety and coach drivers as needed, to reduce behavior such as hard braking, harsh acceleration, and speeding,” said Ray Purtzer, VP of asset management at Archrock. “We also foresee a reduction in operating expenses as a result of implementing MiX, from reduced fuel costs, crash avoidance, and fleet optimization.”
Archrock selected MiX due to its extensive expertise with oil & gas fleets, proven scalability, ability to implement the right-size telematics solutions for all vehicle sizes, while centralizing data collection and analysis across Archrock’s mixed fleet, and its Service for Life approach, according to Purtzer.
Combined with the MiX Journey Management – a journey risk management solution for U.S. Oil and Gas companies – MiX Fleet Manager provides everything an Oil and Gas fleet needs, including compliance monitoring, driver identification and scoring, driver training, and more.
“Archrock provides a great example of a mixed fleet that’s leveraging technology to take a comprehensive approach to monitoring safety, efficiency, and compliance,” said Skip Kinford, president and CEO of MiX Telematics Americas.
