April 30, 2010 - PRLog -- Following the recent installation of Navman Wireless's award-winning tracking system in 16 food delivery vehicles, the Lincolnshire-based operation - the most successful independent consumer co-operative in the UK - immediately discovered a greater level of control over its fleet.

"we used to communicate with our drivers via two-way radio equipment which was far from ideal," said Lincolnshire Co-operative Food Distribution Manager, Ian Bell.

"With the new system, we can now contact any number of drivers at the touch of a button and give them instructions on their in-cab devices.  This is proving particularly valuable when we need to quickly divert and route a vehicle to a different store."

Using Navman Wireless's state-of-the-art OnlineAVL2 tracking software, the system also allows the organisation to instantly see where all its vehicles are from its Food Distribution Centre.

"Apart from being able to give our stores up-to-the-minute information on when a delivery will arrive, the level of visibility we now have means our Warehouse Management Team can prepare afternoon deliveries well before the vehicles have returned to the distribution centre - markedly boosting business efficiency."

In addition to being able to see where vehicles are, the tracking system is enabling Lincolnshire Co-operative to see how long vehicles have been stationary for.

"This has significantly improved work scheduling and break patterns," Ian added.
