Tracker secures major industry award

July 2003 Asset Management, EAS, RFID

Tracker network in the UK has been recognised for its contribution to the vehicle security sector, picking up the Security Award at the 2003 Fleet World Honours for its stolen vehicle recovery systems.

Run by leading business motoring magazine 'Fleet World', the award was judged by an expert panel and was presented at a special ceremony held recently at the RAC Club in London. The panel acknowledged that Tracker "had pioneered the development of stolen vehicle recovery systems."

The award comes after a record-breaking 2002 in which 1300 stolen vehicles worth 32 million pounds were retrieved by the police with the help of Tracker technology. Fleet World editor, Ross Durkin, said: "Tracker joins such prestigious brand names as Hoover and Transit in being the popular name for a whole market sector. The statistics speak for themselves and it is good to know that over 1450 arrests have been made as a result of Tracker in the fight against crime."

To date, Tracker has led the police to the retrieval of more than 9500 stolen vehicles valued at nearly 160 million pounds.
