Trailer fleet management launch from Wabco and Rio18 June 2019

Commercial vehicle braking systems supplier Wabco has teamed up with digital brand Rio to launch a trailer-specific fleet management system.

Called Rio 4TX-TrailerPulse, the solution combines Wabco’s trailer monitoring and diagnostics functionalities with the cloud-based platform from Rio (which is also the MAN vehicle services platform).

The partnership enables fleets that already manage their trucks in Rio’s connectivity environment to manage their trailers via the same platform.

“Extending our trailer telematics capabilities into Rio’s open and fully digital platform builds on our overall mission to help transport operators globally become radically leaner, greener and safer in their daily operational activities,” says Nick Rens, Wabco’s president EMEA.

Jan Kaumanns, CEO for Rio, adds: “Our manufacturer-independent RIO platform has been established through long-term partnerships with industry experience... Leveraging Rio 4TX-TrailerPulse is just the start of a promising partnership that will support our goal to connect all the players of the supply chain ecosystem.”

The new trailer telematics system will be available first in Germany, Austria and Switzerland this summer, followed by the rest of Europe.
