DTS Logistics view live fleet information on the Web through Masternaut

DTS Logistics
1 January, 2000

DTS Logistics has awarded a contract to telematics company Masternaut to provide a live fleet information service via the Internet. DTS, the leading pre-retail logistics company, aims to use Masternaut’s service to improve resource utilisation and customer service. Masternaut transmits live satellite tracking and vehicle management data to the Web giving DTS easy access to information on vehicle activity.

DTS handle over 120 million hanging and 100 million boxed garments a year with a fleet of over 100 commercial vehicles. Masternaut was selected because of the easy accessibility of information via the Web and useful management information presented simply as e-mailed reports.

DTS has been concerned about increasing demands on their business resulting from new legislation and traffic congestion. The new IT investment is part of a key strategy to improve asset management and fleet utilisation with real-time fleet information from Masternaut, coupled with new routing and scheduling systems.

“New working time directives will impact significantly on our fleet operations. Making the best use of our driver’s time is vital. Masternaut provides a picture of key facets of our operations so we can monitor improve safety, security, productivity and customer service” says Andrew Palmer, Operations Director of DTS.

Masternaut gathers data from on-board telematics linking an integrated GPS and data communications unit to driver ID and tachograph sensors.

“Masternaut is simple and effective,” says Andrew Palmer. “There are no upfront costs and we don’t need any special software as it is all available instantly on the Web. Wherever I am, I can dial up the Website from my laptop PC and get a view of the fleet operation. With e-mail reports showing an activity log for each vehicle, I have really useful information at my fingertips.”
