Baltimore Gas & Electric selects WebTech Wireless GPS/GPRS telematics system

WebTech Wireless Inc., a Telematics Services Provider serving fleets, has announced that Baltimore Gas & Electric (BGE), one of North America’s oldest utility companies has selected the WebTech Wireless Locator T3000 and Quadrant fleet services portal to manage its materials distribution fleet with tracking and equipment monitoring services. Baltimore Gas and Electric’s Materials Distribution Division has installed WebTech Locator T3000’s on its tractor-trailer rigs and flatbed trucks that deliver materials to company construction crews throughout its Central Maryland service territory. The WebTech Locator T3000 and Quadrant fleet services portal enables BGE’s Material Distribution dispatch to pinpoint on a map where a delivery truck is at any moment. The Quadrant fleet services portal also provides an online Telematics command center to monitor the operation of on-board vehicle cranes and report on worker panic button alarms.

“Since installing the WebTech fleet tracking and equipment monitoring services and RIMMS software from Descartes, the Distribution division has realized a 14% cost savings,” commented Joseph Suehle, director of Materials Distribution for BGE. “We decided to install the RIMMS software and WebTech’s wireless fleet services as together they provide a comprehensive fleet management system that will help us keep our workers safe and keep us competitive and efficient. The combined systems help us to do a better job spotting inefficiencies.”
