TomTom aid for UEFA

A fleet of 70 vehicles being used by UEFA for the European Under-21 Championship have been fitted with navigation units supplied by TomTom Work.

The business-to-business division of TomTom has installed the units so each vehicle is in direct contact with the organisation’s central point of co-ordination.

A total of 70 vehicles and 120 drivers are currently transporting goods and officials to and from airports, hotels and stadiums during the tournament.

The system aims to ensure deliveries can easily be planned and orders can be sent directly to the drivers from one central co-ordination point.

It also offers a web-based service that allows organisers to constantly monitor the location of each vehicle.

Erwin Somers, manager logistics and transportation, UEFA, said: “The transport of people and goods during this event needs to be of the highest quality possible. By installing the TomTom solutions in all of our vehicles, we have a full overview of their locations and status in one easy-to-use application in one glance. TomTom Work is the ideal solution for us and it’s exactly what we were looking for.”

The event in The Netherlands started on June 10 and runs until Saturday.
