A 24-foot Budget rental truck along with $1.5 million in artwork—including paintings by Milton Avery—and furniture that went missing in April was recovered in Gainesville, FL, thanks to a Cartasite GPS tracking module equipped on the truck.

The truck and the hired driver were slated to haul the goods from Boca Raton, FL to New York City. The driver was apprehended by Gainesville authorities.

“The irony is that Budget didn’t purchase our system as a theft recovery device,” said Cartasite CEO David Armitage. “They are utilizing it as an inventory management tool that allows them to have enough vehicles in the right location at the right time.”
