Navtrak helps Houston-area business fight crime and recover its stolen delivery truck and contents.

Latin Specialties

According to the HPD, there had being a rash of delivery truck vehicle robberies at that particular location, and thanks to the Navtrak GPS tracking system, we were the only business that was able to recover its stolen property.

Jorge Vazquez of Houston's Latin Specialties did his research and knew that a GPS vehicle tracking system would make his specialty food service business more productive. However, he never thought he would need to use the service to stop the theft of one of his trucks -- in the middle of a delivery, and in broad daylight.

Mr. Vazquez's story was told to Navtrak, his GPS vehicle tracking service provider, just after the incident.

"On April 28th, one of our trucks was stolen while making a delivery in a supermarket," reports Mr. Vazquez. "Thanks to the Navtrak GPS system and the prompt help of their customer service department, we were able to track the truck down and relay its real-time position to the Houston Police department. The thief was apprehended, our vehicle recovered (upwards of $100,000 in cost) and our cargo salvaged (another $15-20,000 in cost) - all within an hour of it being stolen. The most rewarding thing, however, was the feeling of being able to fight back and not just be another defenseless 'victim'."

John Lovell, Editor of Navtrak's enewsletter, "GPS Tracking Insights & Info," where Mr. Vazquez's story originally appeared, adds, "We thought this was a powerful reinforcement of the message delivered in the enewsletter: namely, that GPS tracking provides a simple and effective way to not only protect your reputation and your people, but to save you significant money by enabling the recovery of assets stolen in the field."

Mr. Vazquez adds, "According to the HPD, there had being a rash of delivery truck vehicle robberies at that particular location, and thanks to the Navtrak GPS tracking system, we were the only business that was able to recover its stolen property."
