Transport and logistics operators to benefit from TomTom Telematics

25/11/2014

Transport and logistics operators are to benefit from enhanced vehicle utilisation due to live vehicle data from the TomTom Telematics Webfleet system.

TomTom Telematics Webfleet has partnered with Transport Exchange Group to equip members of the Haulage exchange and Courier exchange with live information, such as vehicle location and status, which can then be used to make best use of available resources.

The partnership will enhance the experience of its transport and logistics providing members who will benefit from promoting the use of empty vehicles using real-time positioning and status information taken from Webfleet.

Couriers, hauliers, freight forwarders and logistics providers registered with the freight trading platform will now be able to quickly and efficiently promote the use of empty vehicles. This not only maximises the visibility of available resources, but also provides live load notifications based on actual vehicle locations.

In addition, the integrated solution also generates automatic load status updates for trading partners to ensure complete transparency of the work undertaken for added peace of mind.

OSE European provide same day and next day express pallet delivery services, as well as complete logistics, haulage, freight forwarding and supply chain management from Newcastle upon Tyne, in the North East of England.
