The Exchange, with its more than 6,000 users in the UK’s road transport sector, is integrated with Navman Wireless’ telematics solutions to help optimise members’ fleet performance and boost profitability. This joint effort allows hauliers, freight forwarders and couriers to eliminate empty running and wasted capacity through their vehicle tracking system.
Member businesses are able to utilise their vehicle tracking system to promote available capacity for haulage and courier loads and match precise locations. In addition, by taking advantage of the live tracking data integration, trading partners are able to view the whereabouts and progress of their haulage or courier loads whilst in transit, to provide added visibility and peace of mind.
The joint project with Navman Wireless was the first telematics integration with the Exchange that enabled freight operators to streamline their supply chain processes, by combining and better utilising complementary technology solutions.
Lyall Cresswell, Managing Director of Transport Exchange Group, commented: “We recognised the added value our freight exchanges could deliver to other fleet and transport systems, so the platform was developed with integration in mind. We are continually in discussions with a wide range of like-minded technology providers that operate within the logistics marketplace, such as Navman Wireless, to take advantage of the collaborative opportunities that arise.”
Peter Millichap, European Marketing Manager at Navman Wireless, added: “We are always looking to enhance the functionality of our vehicle tracking tools to help our customers overcome the operational challenges they face. Our solutions are proven to improve the productivity and efficiency of a fleet delivering haulage or courier loads, so it makes perfect sense to integrate with other industry-leading technology systems, such as Transport Exchange Group’s platforms, to provide additional value and boost performance.”

Well, if you were paying attention you'll know that last week I published a post about how I was glad owner driver jobs were becoming more popular in order to offer some healthy competition to Royal Mail. I was saying I think it's a lesson for the Post Office not to get smug and to actually update their prices.Read the full article

Well – I'm not even going to try with this week's topic. When I stumbled across it, I started reading and I must be honest, it made absolutely no sense to me. But I did recognise that it would make a very interesting and useful blog post, so… I'm bowing out and leaving the explaining to someone else! I knew I needed someone who could make heads and tails of the subject, so here's my nephew Stevie to talk about the benefits of tinted windows to self employed drivers and couriers. Or something like that...Read the full article
