A continued flow of navigational signals
from satellites has provided strong support for the Government Supplies
Department (GSD) in its drive for enhancing productivity of its delivery
With the installation of the new computerized
vehicle tracking system, the accurate positioning of the 17 GSD delivery
vehicles will be displayed on a digital map on a computer monitor in
the control centre.
Based on the information of his working
vehicles in real time, the delivery team controller will be able to
make adjustment on deployment in a more effective manner.
The Director of Government Supplies,
Mr. Nigel Shipman said that the new system would enable flexible deployment
of the vehicle fleet, better communications between the control centre
and the delivery teams.
"It will also enable GSD to achieve
more effective management of the vehicle fleet with minimum supervision
and to respond promptly to customer needs.
"In short, the system will contribute
much to the Enhance Productivity Programme," he added.
Mr. Shipman also pointed out that the
introduction of the new system was the fruit of the cumulative effort
of staff at all levels in particular those in the vehicle fleet and
the delivery teams.
He believed that members of the delivery fleet would continue to make good use of the system to improve working procedures and achieve higher standard of performance.
