Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Sat nav for trucks guides drivers to AdBlue filling stations

09 May, 2012

AdBlue supplier Air1 has joined forces with Snooper to highlight AdBlue pump facilities on its Truckmate Pro satellite navigation system that guides truckers on safe routes avoiding low bridges, weight and width restrictions.

The software will create a route based on the attributes of the driver’s particular vehicle. Truckers input the size and weight, plus the type of load if applicable, and Snooper’s Truckmate Pro software will calculate a safe, truck friendly route highlighting roadside sites offering AdBlue.

Paul Norman, Yara’s marketing manager UK & Ireland for Air1, said: “Having built a comprehensive AdBlue forecourt network, which continues to grow, Yara recognises the need for fleets and drivers to be able to locate their Air1 sites. It has been an ambition for some time to make them available on sat nav systems, so the opportunity to work with Snooper with sites detailed on their Truckmate system has been the perfect solution. Air1 welcome this initiative which compliments existing AdBlue location finders.”

Jason Ballard, managing director of Performance Products, which manufactures Truckmate, said: “We have worked with some of the UK’s largest fleets as well as owner drivers, developing Truckmate to include features specifically aimed at professional commercial vehicle drivers. The addition of AdBlue sites from Air1 is one such example. We are delighted to partner with such a key supplier and understand the importance of being able to locate a reliable and quality source of AdBlue for drivers.”
