So says Transport Exchange business development head Simon Bunegar, adding that more than 1,000 lorries are now accessible in real time, and that the system also enables two-way communication with drivers to allocate jobs and capture load status updates.
“We are working with leading technology and telematics partners, such as Teletrac Navman, to allow road transport businesses to securely share key operational information to maximise their fleets’ capacity,” states Bunegar.
“This added visibility and control is having a dramatic impact on their revenue growth, operational performance and environmental impact,” he continues.
“Our usage data shows that members with telematics are gaining significantly more work and consistently getting higher rates per mile.”
Operators with tracked fleets can now message drivers from the Exchange through Navman’s in-cab terminal, enabling them to receive job details, access routes and provide member to member feedback.
Transport Exchange and Teletrac Navman teamed up late in 2014 to allow telematics-enabled, registered operators to gain real-time location and status information.
Integrated couriers, hauliers, freight forwarders and logistics providers can advertise spare capacity and generate load notifications based on accurate positioning data.
