Vehicle tracking brings about multiple benefits for Lincolnshire Co-Operative

By / 11 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

Following the recent installation of Navman Wireless's award-winning system in 16 food delivery vehicles, the Lincolnshire-based operation has reported improved levels of visibility and control over its fleet.

'We used to communicate with our drivers via two-way radio equipment which was far from ideal,' said Lincolnshire Co-operative food distribution manager Ian Bell.

'With the new system, we can now contact any number of drivers at the touch of button and give them instructions on their in-cab devices. This is proving particularly valuable when we need to quickly divert and route a vehicle to a different store.'

This has led to multiple benefits, according to Mr Bell.

'Apart from being able to give our stores up-to-the-minute information on when a delivery will arrive, the level of visibility we now have means our Warehouse Management Team can prepare afternoon deliveries well before the vehicles have returned to the distribution centre – markedly boosting business efficiency.'

In addition to being able to see where vehicles are, the system is enabling Lincolnshire Co-operative to see how long they have been stationary.

'This has significantly improved work scheduling and break patterns,' Mr Bell added.
