Acumen tracks with givemelatitude

Acumen Distribution is tracking vehicles and trailers throughout Britain and across Europe, and says the system is giving it a good real-time picture of vehicle locations – invaluable on the just-in-time automotive parts delivery operations in which the company specialises. It says the system is also helping it to reduce fuel costs.

The system chosen by Acumen is Track-IT from a supplier called givemelatitude, which has origins in the maritime tracking market. It includes powered tracking units in the motive vehicles and solar-powered devices for use in standalone mode on trailers.

The system is providing Acumen with real-time information to manage fuel efficiency, vehicle speeds, loading and unloading times and on-time collection/delivery performance.

'Having precise vehicle movements is becoming a necessity, especially when you're operating in time-sensitive markets,' says managing director Chris Doughty. 'The system is also providing us with accurate history reporting to reduce insurance costs.'
