RCT has successfully commissioned its fleet management system SmarTrack® as the first stage of a project with materials handling specialist International Heavy Equipment in the Sultanate of Oman.
The project is a result of Oman Air SATS Cargo—the premier cargo operations handler at Muscat International Airport—upgrading to electric tow tractors and counterbalance forklifts including a Fleet Management System.
RCT along with International Heavy Equipment which is the Oman dealer of Jungheinrich Materials Handling Equipment successfully fitted 6 Jungheinrich EZS 590 Tow Tractors and 10 EFG220 Counterbalance Forklifts with SmarTrack® Fleet Management.
The SmarTrack® product collects and reports operational data for each machine in an entire fleet providing live data to give site managers quick access to key production and maintenance performance indicators as well as real-time notifications of heavy impacts or damage to machines.
RCT Senior Business Development Manager – Industrial, Grahame Don said the company is pleased to have successfully commissioned the product for International Heavy Equipment and in turn Oman Air SATS Cargo.
“SmarTrack® will deliver significant benefits for the end user including efficiency gains for site and fleet managers, compliance from operators and cost reductions due to less machine maintenance and repair works,” he said.
“The product provides for a multilingual checklist which in this case will be provided in English and Arabic to machine operators.”
International Heavy Equipment Sales Engineer – Jungheinrich, Mohammed Shahid said the company is delighted to partner with RCT on Fleet Management solutions and hopes to continue this business relationship in the future.
“We are pleased with the application of SmarTrack® due to its ease of integration with the Jungheinrich system and successfully catering to the operational needs of our client.”
Oman Air SATS Cargo Chief Operating Officer Henry Christopher said he is delighted that the technology has been implemented into their operation.
“The SmarTrack® fleet management system will provide Oman Air SATS Cargo managers with key data in real-time that will enable us to make informed decisions to benefit our operations,” he said.
“I look forward to working with RCT in the future to help deliver quality solutions to our air freight handling fleet.”
In February and again in May this year, RCT Technical Support Manager – Industrial Matt Ingram and International Heavy Equipment representatives jointly delivered training on the new machines and the SmarTrack® system to Oman Air SATS Cargo management and machine operators.
