Sunderland City Council has chosen Ctrack to provide a vehicle tracking solution across 370 vehicles within its building, maintenance and support services fleet.
Ctrack’s tracking system has been fitted on a range of commercial vehicles including vans, road sweepers and refuse trucks, which has already resulted in fuel savings of up to 13%.
It has enabled the council to monitor and capture real-time movements to ensure vehicles are driven efficiently, avoid unnecessary journeys and remain on-route.
Each vehicle will also be fitted with remote panic alarms, providing added security to lone employees especially those working late night shifts.
John Todd, of Sunderland City Council, said: “Ctrack’s tracking system has already contributed to driving down our fuel costs and we expect to achieve further business and operational benefits moving forward.
“We have worked closely with Ctrack to develop a tracking solution that will enhance the overall performance of our fleet and ultimately heighten the service we provide to our customers.”
Tom O’Connor, managing director of Ctrack, said: “The server-based solution will provide added speed and responsiveness over other web-based options, enabling Sunderland City Council to better manage and control its vehicle fleet.”
