Web-based satellite tracking for Air Products

Air Products has chosen Masternaut Three X to supply a web-based satellite tracking system for its UK and Ireland cylinder gas business following a trial of the service.

Air Products Packaged Gases serves a range of customers and industries including: steel; energy; technology; healthcare; and food markets, with a range of atmospheric gases, process and specialty gases.

It uses a specially developed routeing and scheduling program to manage its delivery fleet.  Air Products’ will cross-reference the Masternaut live information with the routeing and scheduling software to enable it to optimise the management of the fleet.

“Air Products’ two key objectives for the Masternaut implementation are: utilisation of the service to identify areas for improving our vehicle routing and also ensuring we have a robust, lone worker system that provides maximum safety, eradicating any chance of human error,” said Peter Birdsall, UK transport manager, Packaged Gases, Air Products.
“One of the main benefits this solution offers us is the ability to manage the sequence of orders and let customers know when they can expect their deliveries,” he adds.
