Saving Livelihoods

Connected Stolen Vehicle Services for Commercial Vehicles

In Recent Years...

the commercial vehicle sector, particularly van owners and operators, has faced a challenge: the rise of vehicle thefts. This trend not only impacts the bottom line of businesses, but also jeopardises the livelihoods of countless individuals reliant on their vans for work.   This article aims to explore the crucial role of Connected Stolen Vehicle Services (SVS) in safeguarding these assets and, by extension, the businesses and lives they support.


The Rising Threat

Theft of commercial vehicles, especially vans has seen a worrying uptick.  These vehicles are often targeted for their valuable cargo, or for the vehicle itself. For many small business owners and self-employed individuals, a van is more than a mode of transport; it’s a mobile office, a warehouse, and for some, a home.  The loss of a van can not only mean a financial setback but also a loss of income, client trust and business continuity.

The solution: Connected SVS

Connected SVS presents a robust solution to this growing problem.  These systems utilise advanced technology, including GPS tracking, to monitor vehicles in real-time.  Operating across Europe, North America, Australia and New-Zealand, this capability allows for quick response and the recovery of stolen vehicles before significant damage can occur.  

Key Benefits of Connected SVS

Real-Time Tracking and Recovery: Connected SVS enables the real-time tracking of vehicles. In the event of theft, the vehicle can be promptly located and recovered, significantly reducing the likelihood of permanent loss.

Deterrent to Thieves: The presence of a tracking system itself acts as a deterrent. Thieves are less likely to target vehicles that can be easily traced.

Lower Insurance Costs: Many insurance companies offer reduced premiums for vehicles equipped with SVS. This cost-saving benefit can be particularly advantageous for businesses operating multiple vehicles.

Business Continuity: With rapid recovery and reduced risk of theft, businesses can ensure continuity. This stability is crucial for maintaining client trust and operational efficiency.

Data Insights for Better Management: Apart from security, connected SVS provides valuable data on vehicle usage, which can be leveraged for better fleet management and operational optimisation.

Trust in the brand: Research shows that OEMs that offer stolen vehicle services and other connected services are seen as conscientious by their customers.


The case for OEM integration

For vehicle manufacturers, the integration of Connected SVS into commercial vehicles presents a compelling proposition.  It’s an opportunity to offer added value to customers, differentiating their product in a competitive market, whilst becoming another source of recurring revenue.  More importantly, it shows a commitment to addressing real-world challenges faced by their clients, aligning with the broader trend towards connected, smart solutions in the automotive industry.
