Isotrak and Ortec wins fleet management partnership

Apetito has chosen Isotrak’s Active Transport Management System (ATMS) and Ortec’s Advanced Dynamic Planning Solutions, over a number of competitors to supply vehicle tracking and route optimisation across their LGV fleet.

Ortec will provide optimised daily route schedules and allow planning decisions to be based on full cost and CO2 visibility, all this will reduce back office administration and increase customer service, whilst Isotrak’s ATMS will allow real-time tracking and live driver de-brief on plan vs. actual performance on fuel efficiency, distance run and duty time.

Integrating these communication systems ensures that all the relevant information is automatically delivered to the driver, including any updates to the plan and operational information.

Neil Emery, director of customer service & distribution at apetito comments: “With the Isotrak and Ortec solution we have been able to optimise route planning and operational tracking, as well as linking to our existing SAP system. We wanted a solution that would help us optimise across primary and secondary distribution networks and drive real benefits in terms of efficiency, environmental impact and improved customer communication – together, Isotrak and Ortec have delivered on all three. We’re looking forward to seeing these benefits drop through.”
