Ocean Readymix installs new GPS to track vehicles
Abu Dhabi, January 9, 2010
Ocean Readymix & Precast, a leading concrete supplier in Abu Dhabi, has installed the Skyline GPS advanced tracking and security system from Enigma Vehicle Systems of the UK, to help manage the company’s fleet of concrete mixing trucks.
The installation of the Skyline system has automated fleet management at Ocean Readymix & Precast, giving the company greater visibility of the fleet, ensuring that vehicles are taking the correct route to customers, checking that they are delivering on time and preventing vehicles from being left idle for long periods of time.
Ocean Readymix & Precast gets prescribed inputs from the Skyline system that tell the company exactly when the vehicles are unloading.
The accurate information provided by Skyline enables the concrete supplier to move vehicles easily between batching plants, optimising both production and delivery resources and providing customers with more precise delivery information.
Ocean Readymix & Precast is also using the Skyline system to monitor the performance of the company’s drivers, checking that they are not speeding and are adhering to the company’s code of practice.
The Skyline system has provided significant, measurable benefits throughout the Ocean Readymix & Precast fleet with direct cost savings due to enhanced efficiency in running the fleet and, most importantly, improved customer service.
The latest version 6.0 Skyline system is wholly Internet-based, offering faster response, better functionality and enhanced flexibility through increased data analysis features.
The universal design of the new Skyline 6.0 system now allows it to be used simultaneously not only in the Middle East, but also in Europe and elsewhere in the world such as Latin America and Africa.
The Skyline system will report vehicle movements (authorised or unauthorised), tamper, ignition state and a host of other data via eight input/output ports that can be used for monitoring additional sensors.
These may be fuel level, battery level, coolant, engine running/not running, engine covers open/closed and so on. Each system can be customised to provide the security and telemetry data required by both the customer and user. – TradeArabia News Service
