Masternaut Three X has won a contract to supply an advanced vehicle tracking solution to nationwide logistics company Pollock (Scotrans). The company will use the web-based system across its entire HGV fleet, providing real-time views and data on the location of each vehicle and driver as they make deliveries throughout the UK.
Pollock (Scotrans) will make full use of the GreenerFleet module for environmental and driver performance management. The system will provide comprehensive reporting on fuel usage, idling and speed. This will assist with the company’s driver training schemes, helping drivers to improve driving styles and on road safety.
"Fleet tracking has come a long way in terms of management information and the Masternaut system is extremely comprehensive in the amount and range of data it provides. Customers also recognise the benefits of live tracking and many require their transport partners to use it," says Harry Mulvey, Financial Controller, Pollock (Scotrans).
"With Masternaut we will get all the information we need and it will be in real time. This will allow us to proactively manage the fleet and alert customers of any alterations to delivery times. They are also aware that such a system will improve safety and environmental performance and this fits in with their own policies."
The system will also provide accurate payroll reports, eventually eliminating the need for drivers to submit timesheets.
"Masternaut provides up to the minute payroll data and as our drivers operate all over the UK the system will streamline our payroll processes. The information is 100 per cent accurate, which avoids any disputes over working hours," says Mulvey.
Pollock (Scotrans) reviewed several vehicle tracking systems from different suppliers and were won over by the Masternaut solution following a live demonstration at another Masternaut customer site.
