Any Stobart spotters in da house?

Right, before i get ripped apart for being a lorry spotter understand that.....I most definately am NOT...........Honestly

I was however told about something yesterday (by a friend...again, honestly) concerning Eddie Stobart which i found incredible.

ESL, have produced an app which allows you to track ANY of their 2500 trucks, in real time, wherever they may be in the UK and Europe

Its listed in the Apple app store as "Stobart Finder"

I can hear the criminal fraternity rubbing their hands in anticipation. They can now track that lorry that's just loaded 20 pallets of lager from the Carlsberg distribution center and wait for its driver to pull in for a break somewhere and......wahey, early Xmas.

As someone who drives a wagon from time to time, i do feel for the drivers knowing that anyone can now track their location. Poor buggers.

Wonder how long it's going to be before a client backlash as they worry about the security of their loads...

Oh and BTW, i havent downloaded it....my friend has!

Simon
