European haulier installs telematics fleet management
The fleet of Willi Betz freight vehicles are being equipped with telematics systems from Transics with CAN bus and tachograph connections.
European freight operator, Willi Betz is equipping around 370 of its vehicles with advanced telematics systems from Transics, including the fixed TX-SKY on-board computer and TX-CONNECT back office software.
Commenting on the upgrade from an older system, Dietmar Munding of Willi Betz said, “We started substituting our old, satellite-based system last year with the equipment from Transics. Now, we’ve equipped more than 120 trucks in eight of our European subsidiaries with TX-SKY on-board computers. This helps us to significantly upgrade our fleet management capabilities. Based on the positive results, we decided to equip an additional 250 trucks with Transics’ advanced telematics solution by the end of this year.”
Enabling Willi Betz to meet all customer needs such as on-time delivery, TX-SKY is connected to the vehicle’s CAN bus and tachograph, tracking and exchanging all driver- and truck-related information in real time. Via Transics’ online web service platform, the company’s Transport Management System is integrated into the TX-CONNECT back office software.
Also integrated within the back office platform is Transics’ document management product, TX-DOCSCAN, which allows drivers to forward transport documents directly from the cab, thus accelerating billing and payment processes. Furthermore, the navigation function is linked to the order and charge-based workflow, improving driver efficiency.
Didier Nulens, Global Sales, Marketing & Operations Leader, at Transics commented, “Willi Betz and Transics share their vision for state-of-the-art professional transport systems. Both companies are committed to fully analysing and understanding their customers’ needs, in order to deliver professional products that perfectly match demands. By offering our telematics product, we support Willi Betz in demonstrating their core values of quality, excellent on-the-ground experience and customer service.”
