AI tech helps JJX Logistics reduce emissions

International haulage company JJX Logistics has achieved a 17% reduction in fleet emissions in three months using artificial intelligence (AI) solutions from Samsara.

The move has allowed JJX Logistics to become one of the seven UK companies to gain Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) Trucking Security Requirements (TSR) Level 1 approval.

With more than 70% of goods handled by JJX Logistics being UN-regulated dangerous goods — such as commercial lithium-ion battery packs and Class 8 corrosive liquids — Samsara has played a role in ensuring the safety of drivers carrying dangerous cargo.

JJX Logistics has fitted its fleet of 58 hard-bodied, soft-sided and temperature-regulated trailers with Samsara’s dual-facing cameras and AI-driven Gateways. The company now has visibility of every vehicle, which can be monitored and tracked on a single screen.

According to Samsara, the ability to monitor idling times has also helped to shape changes in driver behaviour, saving almost 400 gallons of fuel in the second half of 2023.

Edward Martin, head of security & fleet compliance at JJX Logistics, said: “We’re continuously operating in a high-pressure environment where compliance is paramount. We’re not about moving items from A to B in bulk, as fast or as cheap as possible – we’re a solutions-driven company who work with our customers to tailor the perfect approach for every individual task. And we are able to operate at a high level of service because of the value the Samsara technology adds to our operations.

“Our vehicles are now being driven better, and this is increasing sustainability, fuel efficiency and hopefully insurance costs. The real-time tracking, transparency and efficiency we can now achieve is part of our credibility as a business.”
