TomTom helps fleet cut costs with new tracking device

Apr 26 2012

The new LINK 510 communication and vehicle tracking device from TomTom is intended to help businesses with the task of containing the increasing cost of fuel. The device was launched at Birmingham's Commercial Vehicle Show on Tuesday and provides greater control over driving efficiency for all cars, trucks and vans including those which may have been rented out on a contract hire scheme, by monitoring the behaviour of the driver and the movement and position of the vehicle itself.

Transport firms will be able to make use of the new device in order to report fuel consumption, fuel levels and over-revving by making use of the standard fleet management system interface of a truck, which allows for the detection of fuel drops and refills and triggers automatic notifications which assist managers to detect cases of fuel theft, something which has become an increasing concern for many companies across Europe.

"The latest Link device highlights our commitment to constant innovation, providing easily implemented products which offer a significant boost to businesses' bottom line," says the managing director of TomTom Business Solutions, Thomas Schmidt. "The soaring cost of fuel has made it the number one concern for many fleet operators and the Link 510 builds on TomTom's existing product portfolios to give them even greater power to improve fuel efficiency, monitor driving behaviour and deliver cost savings."

Schmidt adds that the company believes that all firms which use vehicles for business purposes will become more profitable if they use the Link 510 with their vehicles.
