UTILISATION case study
DFDS/Norfolkline Logistics, a leading European logistics provider, have invested in asset tracking since 2003, both to increase security and as a tool to maximise fleet utilisation. Mervyn McIntyre, Equipment Manager Norfolkline Logistics, notes: “Since we fitted asset tracking, we have had a 100% recovery rate for stolen assets where tracking was fitted. In addition, one of the studies we carried out displayed that an increase of only 3% in asset usage would recover the investment in the tracking system, and any increases on top of that would then contribute directly to our Net Income”. This increase could be driven by Trailermatics, ensuring that assets spend less time unused or not fully loaded.
