One of the leading petroleum companies in Ethiopia, National Oil Ethiopia (NOC), unveiled a new tanker tracking system on Thursday.
The new system will enable the company to locate tanker trucks, protect fuel adultery and monitor the behavior of drivers.
NOC procured the technology from a US-based company, Global Tracking Technology PLC. The contractual agreement was signed by Tadesse Tilahun, CEO of NOC, and Zelalem Dagne, managing director of Global Tracking Technology at the Dashen Salon of the Sheraton Addis.
Zelalem said that the Electronic Cargo Tracking System components (ECTS) include tracking reader, electronic seal, GPS\GPRS modem (fleet management device) and ETCS software platform. The tanker tracking system enables the company to monitor the location of the truck, the behavior of the driver and the dispensing valves of the tanker.
Zelalem said the tanker tracking system reports an unauthorized opening of the fuel tanker. “Once the fuel is loaded at the port it will automatically shut down the valve and if someone tries to open it along the way it will report it to the headquarters of both NOC and Global Tracking,” Zelalem told journalists.
The contractor and client can monitor how the driver of each tanker truck is driving. “We can learn about his speeding and reckless driving and we can instantly make him stop the truck,” Zelalem said.
According to him, the tanker tracking system enables them to reduce fuel cost by 10-15 percent, accident rate by 50 percent and maintenance cost by 40 percent.
The Minister of Transport, Workneh Gebeyehu, State Minister of the Ministry of Trade, Ali Siraj, and Kassahun Hailemariam, general manager of Ethiopian Transport Authority, lauded NOC’s effort to modernize and ensure the security of fuel tankers. The officials called upon other petroleum companies to follow suit.
