ACK Transport, based in Wollaston Northamptonshire, is using a unique mobile app from routeMASTER for remote monitoring of its general haulage fleet.

As a long-time customer of AGM, ACK Transport is eligible to add the recently upgraded app free of charge to its existing routeMASTER fleet control system. Vehicle progress can be pin-pointed in real time and access to the routeMASTER vehicle tracking and analysis system is possible from literally any location.

It’s a good management tool which not only lets us monitor the vehicles but also enables us to check time sheets remotely.

Managing Director Andrew Kevan has quickly taken to the new application: “We use the system to keep a check on vehicle locations and that’s handy when, for example, customers need to know an accurate ETA. It’s a good management tool which not only lets us monitor the vehicles but also enables us to check time sheets remotely. The app is easy to download and really simple to use. Always having my mobile to hand means I can access a host of fleet information from the minute I get up to last thing at night!”

ACK Transport runs an extensive curtainsider fleet and provides a nationwide general haulage service, including building products and electrical goods transport.

“With so many vehicles on the road and with multi drop delivery points,” adds Andrew” it’s also important to keep vehicle idling to a minimum. The routeMASTER system allows us to monitor each tractor for any excessive idling, which helps to keep fuel bills down and ticks a box for the environment. The cloud-based software has, for a while, played a key role in the efficient running of our fleet. This new app just makes it a little easier.”
