Lucien Kunegal (LK) Group
Based in the Alsace region in northeastern France, Lucien Kunegel (LK) Group is one of the largest independent passenger transport companies in France, with eight subsidiary companies throughout the region.
With fuel costs on the steady increase, the primary business challenge for LK Tours was to reduce fuel consumption. The company also wanted to cut down on carbon emissions in line with their CO2 charter. A secondary objective was to enhance passenger comfort through a smoother driving experience.
The company opted for a MiX Telematics fleet management solution and, in partnership with French channel partner, SIRAC, had their vehicles fitted with FM Communicators and MiX RIBAS Displays.
The first phase of the project demonstrated savings of around €28,000 per year for the Schmitt (Eurotours) business unit of 40 vehicles. And that was only the beginning.
