Ctrack has launched a vehicle tracking solution aimed at the courier and express delivery marketplace.
Ctrack Courier has been developed to help tackle some of the most common challenges facing businesses in this industry sector, with particular focus on security, driving behaviour and operational visibility.
There have been numerous instances where thieves have targeted vehicles left unattended while a delivery is made, with the vehicle keys in the ignition and the engine running, and the company has designed the product to better protect vans and their cargo.
John Wisdom, European managing director of Ctrack, said: “We are offering a bespoke solution for courier and express delivery operators that incorporates enhanced features and benefits, which off-the-shelf telematics systems do not provide.
“There are many 1,000s of delivery vehicles in UK and mainland Europe that are fitted with our technology, so we have used this experience to develop a solution that addresses many of the day-to-day operational issues confronting the industry.”
Ctrack Courier features a high-pitched siren that will sound in the event of any unauthorised opening of doors while the engine is running, including the rear and side loading doors.
Meanwhile, notifications will automatically alert the control room of an issue. The Ctrack software can then be used to immobilise the vehicle remotely in the event of a theft or hijacking, which once activated will also trigger the siren.
