SOFTWARE UPDATE – ISOTRAK/LIVE TRAFFIC
Branches and representatives will be aware of the National Agreement between Royal Mail Logistics and the CWU on the Use of Telemetry Equipment in Royal Mail Network Vehicles, communicated via LTB 398/14.
The department was recently approached by Royal Mail Logistics as they wished to share information in relation to a software update that they would like to deploy Nationally from the end of November 2016. This software update adds live traffic information to the Sat Nav on the Isotrak system in Logistics.
The update allows our Logistics members to identify where there are traffic issues on their route and provides them with live updates in order that they can be routed around heavy congestion and road closures, whilst maintaining the current parameters of the equipment that take into account the height and length of the vehicle.
Under the current terms of the National Agreement covering the use of the Isotrak telemetry the Sat Nav option is not compulsory and the business have confirmed that this aspect remains unchanged. The business have also reaffirmed that they remain committed to our current National Agreement and that this is purely a software update, which can be accessed if required by our drivers.
The business is now making arrangements to roll out this update to all Network sites. The roll out process will include a USB being sent to each site which has been configured with the Live Traffic update so they can upload it into the fleet. The business will be releasing communications on the Live Traffic via Drive Time and the Courier.
Any enquiries in relation to this LTB should be addressed to Davie Robertson, Assistant Secretary, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com quoting reference number: 233.03
