Redhead Couriers Ltd, has added advanced vehicle tracking solution to its portfolio with the Transport Exchange Group’s freight exchange platform.
By integrating its Navman Wireless telematics solution with Courier Exchange, the company can provide complete visibility and status of their vehicles to more than 4,500 operators in the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe. As a result, Redhead Couriers will now be able to better promote available capacity, match precise vehicle locations and monitor the progress of loads whilst in transit.
Earlier this year, Redhead Couriers adopted the vehicle tracking solution across its fleet of 14 HGVs and vans in order to monitor driver behaviour, reduce fuel usage and boost operational performance.
Redhead Couriers uses Courier Exchange from two sites in Colchester and London, with around 10 per cent of loads coming via the freight trading platform. By taking real-time locations of available capacity direct from the tracking software, the company has already experienced an increase in incoming job enquiries, while trading partners are now able to view the exact whereabouts and progress of their loads whilst in transit.
