Trust turns to vehicle tracking

Trafford Housing Trust is rolling vehicle tracking out to 80 of its housing maintenance vehicles.

Once installed, the Navman Wireless system aims to help the organisation cut fuel usage and improve its service to tenants who occupy more than 9,000 homes throughout the Trafford area.

“The traditional complexities involved in keeping track and organising the routes of a large number of vehicles have often hindered our ability to operate as efficiently and effectively as we’d like,” said Steve Coakley, procurement and fleet co-ordinator at Trafford Housing Trust.

“With tracking technology though, we’ll be able to monitor the real time movements of our fleet on the online software, ensuring we’re getting the right maintenance vehicle to the right job as quickly as possible.”

In addition to reducing fuel bills through better vehicle distribution, tracking will give the housing association vehicle speeds, maintenance reports and live traffic data.
