GPS Service Saves $120,000 for Busy Produce Distributor

May 27, 2008

HOUSTON– According to the Houston Police Department, a rash of delivery truck robberies recently occurred in the area, but thanks to the Navtrak system, several vehicles were recovered. In fact, one Houston area produce distributor relayed a recent story about the recovery of one of its trucks.

"Last April the 28, one of our trucks was stolen while making a delivery in a supermarket. Thanks to the Navtrak system and the prompt help of your customer service department, we were able to track the truck down, kill the engine, and relay its real-time position to the Houston Police department. The thief was apprehended, our vehicle recovered (upwards of $100,000 in cost) and our cargo salvaged (another $15-20,000 in cost) — all within an hour of it being stolen. The most rewarding thing, however, was the feeling of being able to fight back and not just be another defenseless 'victim.'"
