The partnership enables the forwarding of Schmitz Cargobull trailer data to the RIO portal and the import of truck telematics data via connection to the TrailerConnect Data Management Centre.
Matthias Cordes, head of product management at Telematics, said: "Our partnership enables transportation companies to access a comprehensive set of truck and trailer data in real time and in one place. This makes it easier for dispatchers to schedule tours and for fleet managers to better coordinate service calls.”
The integration provides an overview of key truck and trailer data on one platform without the need to install additional hardware. This way, RIO Truck and Schmitz Cargobull Trailer data is displayed in real time as well as comprehensive fleet and map information.
RIO CEO Jan Kaumanns said: "The interface of RIO with Schmitz Cargobull TrailerConnect is one of many important steps to further simplify logistics processes. This brings us ever closer to a uniform and clear ecosystem for freight forwarders, ensuring we break down the data silos of days gone by.”
Fleet managers can view truck and trailer telematics data in one place on the TrailerConnect portal. This helps with dispatching, route optimisation and managing schedules, as well as improving overall fleet efficiency and reducing operating costs. Combined telematics data offers advantages in truck and trailer maintenance management. Real-time alerts help plan repair and maintenance work and reduce breakdowns and downtime.
