Amsterdam,– TomTom WORK, the business-to-business division of TomTom, the world’s largest portable navigation solutions provider is equipping dozens of vehicles with a TomTom WORK connected navigation solution, during the European Under-21 Championship.

In total, 70 vehicles and 120 drivers will be available to take care of transportation of goods and officials to and from airports, hotels and stadiums during the tournament. Using the TomTom WORK solution, deliveries can easily be planned and orders can be sent directly to the drivers from one central co-ordination point.
