Our fleet is monitored mainly by our Operations Staff.
Our director also has access to the tracking systems should our Operations Staff not be available. As a backup service, the tracking company can also provide us with any updates we might need, if we are unable to access the details via the equipment we have.
In the unlikely event of a suspected hi-jacking / accident, we are covered by the tracking company, who provide rapid response services.
A team is sent out to the vehicle/s to assess if everything is in order. Various security verification processes are carried out to confirm if the driver and cargo are indeed correct as per our knowledge. Once all criteria are met and the security personnel are satisfied, the all clear is given and the vehicle/s can proceed as normal.
All our vehicles are fitted with live satellite tracking systems from Tracker Webfleet.
Panic buttons and an on-board keypad are fitted as part of the package to guarantee extra safety. All drivers are trained in their usage. Vehicles are monitored constantly in South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and the DRC. The tracking can be utilised depending on the routes that we travel, so options are available if need be.
All our vehicles are fitted with on-board keypads.
In additions to this, all our drivers have mobile phones and sim cars for the various countries that they travel to. This is an added benefit, as we are able to get hold of them constantly, to pass on or get various information we may require and to check on their well-being during the transport.
