Keski-Suomen Tavaralähetit Oy, a Finnish express carrier and package delivery company, has implemented a new system to monitor their deliveries. The system is based on Aplicom’s vehicle computers, the Swedish company Fleet101 Ab is responsible for the application and a Finnish company, M-Motion Ltd Oy, provides the data transfer.
The system offers new ways for Tavaralähetit to serve its customers. In the future the intention is to enable the customer to make orders via Internet and information regarding the deliveries can be deliveredby e-mail or SMS. Also in-house delivery monitoring and reporting can be done in the Internet.
This investment replaces the previous system, which also was provided by Aplicom and served Tavaralähetit well for nine years. One of the reasons for this upgrade is the discontinuation of the network, Mobitex, which the old system used.
The current system uses the compact Aplicom F-series vehicle computer. Data transfer between vehicles and the office is done via GPRS-network and the tracking function via GPS. Fleet101 Ab has implemented their K2 application with Microsoft development tools, which enables fast and flexible customer oriented tailoring of the application and map interfaces.
”This solution gives Tavaralähetit an even stronger position in comparison to its competitors. We can offer our customers in Central Finland a unique service when it comes down to quick response-times, accuracy and flexibility in deliveries”, says Markku Kyyrönen, the Managing Director of Keski-Suomen Tavaralähetit Oy.
