Quartix vehicle tracking reveals its role during London 2012

After securing the licence from the Supplier Recognition Scheme delivered by the British Olympic Association, Quartix has revealed its role in the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Quartix helped ensure the smooth-running of operations throughout the Games by tracking nearly 600 vehicles for organising committee LOCOG.

The Quartix trackers played a key part in the transportation of IOC members, delegates and VIPs between the Olympic venues and top locations throughout the capital. For the length of the Olympics, the BMW fleet was tracked with Quartix’s advanced GPS unit, whilst MPVs and buses were also fitted with the system during the Paralympic Games. By giving real-time information on the exact locations of the vehicles at any time, the Quartix units were essential in preserving the security of passengers and Londoners alike.

Andy Walters, Managing Director of Quartix, added: “We are very honoured to have been a part of the Games and proud to have helped make London 2012 a huge success. The safety of the Games was of paramount importance to the accomplishment of such a large operation, so it’s great to know our vehicle tracking units helped the transport and logistics team succeed in their colossal task.”
