Tarmac, the UK’s leading supplier of heavy building materials, has signed a major contract with Masternaut Three X for a specifically developed web-based satellite-tracking solution for its fleet of aggregate vehicles. The Masternaut service will be implemented throughout Tarmac’s Aggregates Products division, which provides sand, gravel, rock, asphalt and ready-mixed concrete to the building and road construction industries nationwide.
Tarmac will initially implement Masternaut’s satellite tracking and mobile solutions across 1350 vehicles owned by contracted and regular hauliers over the next 3 months. It is anticipated that more of the aggregates fleet will be equipped with the service by the end of 2008.
Tarmac will use Masternaut to track vehicle movements in real time enabling the company to boost customer service and operational productivity and efficiency. Using Masternaut reporting, the company will be able to monitor and obtain specific information about each vehicle as well as being able to answer customer queries about their aggregate orders by accessing real-time information provided by the tracking solution.
“Delivering on time, every time is a critical objective for aggregates suppliers. Customers need to know that their orders have been dispatched and when they will arrive on site. Likewise Tarmac does not want its vehicles arriving on site and waiting excessive periods before tipping asphalt or ready mixed concrete. The solution we have developed with Tarmac provides precise real-time information that will benefit both the Aggregates Products division and its customers,” says Mark Leavy, Corporate Accounts Director, Masternaut Three X.
