TXM Plant Hire’s story


TXM Plant Hire Ltd is the leading supplier of Road Rail Vehicles in the UK. For over 25 years, TXM has hired out its fleet of vehicles and machines to rail companies, such as Network Rail and their subcontractors, when they are installing new tracks or making repairs to the rail lines or overhead wiring. As rail construction projects run on tight timetables, TXM also has engineers on call to fix machinery and keep projects on track.

Due to TXM’s vehicles being deployed over miles of track, engineers must always be able to find them. Quartix’s live tracking lets the operators at TXM’s depots do this 24/7. “We are currently tracking assets of around £35 million, so we have to have a reliable vehicle tracking system that allows us total visibility.”  TXM has seen a reduction in engine idling after using the Quartix reports to coach its drivers. “Because of the nature of their work and the fact that it often takes place at night, sometimes drivers will keep the engine on to provide warmth. We encourage them to switch the engine off and save fuel and it works.”

Why Quartix?


Quartix offers reliable telematics for the rail industry to ensure the safety of workers and fleet vehicles, particularly in remote locations where many projects are carried out. Our vehicle tracking system is designed to streamline your operations and help you discover potential risks that may arise. We combine the latest GPS tracker technology with sophisticated reporting so that you can feel confident that your fleet is used optimally and your workers are driving safely, all while ensuring projects are delivered on schedule.

Your challenge


Our valuable reports on driver behaviour can be a key player in your cost-saving agenda, allowing you to operate a safer, greener and more efficient fleet. The Quartix telematics system is an intrinsic tool for fleet managers, especially when vehicles are driven by a large number of agency workers. Many of our customers use our integrated dashcam to capture footage of drivers’ trips, providing a witness in the case of any incidents. With the camera’s dual lens capability, they are able to see footage of both the road in front of the vehicle and the driver.

“We’ve had a great experience with booking engineers to install new trackers or swap them–it’s a seamless process. In fact, we’ve recently signed up for another year for all of our trackers and we’re very pleased.”

The unique Quartix SafeSpeed Database enables you to significantly reduce the chances of accidents by tracking a relative speed score for drivers. Our system gathers actual road user speed data from each and every roadway in the UK to define safe speeds, so you can be sure that your employees are driving responsibly.
