Fonterra spends $45 million on 90 tankers
This week, Fonterra announced that they have almost completed the upgrading of 67 tankers and adding 23 new ones. Once that is done, Fonterra will have the largest fleet in New Zealand. The tankers, which will be used to collect milk from farms throughout the country, are fitted with a tracking system called TAMS, and the data is reviewed to see the condition of each tanker – idling time, levels of fuel burn, braking, acceleration etc. These data are then regularly analysed to ensure that the milk collection operations remain efficient, environmentally friendly, and economical.
