James Shaw and Son has implemented Teletrac Navman’s connected fleet management platform, with a view to streamline and optimise its operations.
The haulage business will benefit from vehicle tracking, which provides a comprehensive and dynamic overview of the location and performance of all the truck and trailers that make up its fleet.
For added flexibility, James Shaw and Son has also adopted Director’s mobile app platform, which replicates the functionality and usability of the Director platform via a smart device.
Teletrac Navman’s UK vice president of sales Scott Hutchins said: “Road haulage businesses are essential for our economy, yet they so often face complex and demanding logistical challenges.
"We are really pleased that we are able to help James Shaw & Son overcome such issues, giving them the tools needed to effectively manage workflow, costs and time so the business can focus on delivering its crucial services in the haulage and logistics sector. We’re looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship.”
James Shaw & Son’s managing director Andrew Shaw said: “We operate a seven days a week service, so working as efficiently and productively as possible is key to the success of our business.
"Following the smooth implementation of Teletrac Navman’s software, we have been so pleased with the results and can already see how it is adding real value to our levels of service.
"The mobile app has been particularly impressive, granting multiple users immediate and easy access to key data, which has enabled us to be proactive rather than reactive to all our customer service queries.”
