  • Presentation at the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018
  • Special prize for the ‘Best innovation’ of all solutions submitted
  • ‘Digital seal’ offers invisible protection for the cargo
  • Jury evaluates the technology, user support and service

Munich, Hanover, 26.09.2018 --- The ‘digital seal’ from idem telematics has been awarded the Telematik Award 2018 at the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018: the expert jury selected the Munich-based company as the winner of the special prize for the ‘Best innovation’ of all 278 solutions that were entered.

Jens Zeller, Managing Director of idem telematics, accepted the prize at the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018 in Hanover. ‘We are extremely pleased with this award,’ Jens Zeller said. ‘It confirms that our solutions provide the optimum answers to the real challenges of day-to-day business in the transport industry. Our engineers work on state-of-the-art, cost-effective telematics applications that provide vehicle operators with concrete, straightforward support.’

The digital seal is an innovative security concept that documents whether the load stays intact on the transport route. At the same time, its simple handling creates cost benefits for the forwarder, as there is no need for additional hardware components. It replaces labour-intensive conventional seals that need to be attached manually by the driver and provides an invisible protective wall that secures the goods using customised parameters such as geofencing. If an unauthorised person attempts to open the door, this is immediately reported to the party who is responsible for the vehicle. The digital seal also enables legally valid documentation to be produced. The innovation is integrated in the ‘cargofleet3’ portal and is complemented by a new type of swap body management.

idem telematics previously won over the jury in 2016 with the TC Trailer Gateway modular telematics solution. The media group invites entries for the Telematik Award every two years and the prizes are presented at the IAA Commercial Vehicles – in cooperation with the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) and the Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labour, Transport and Digitalisation of Lower Saxony. The winners are selected by an independent specialist jury made up of members from business and academia, trade journalists, users and experts. The jury evaluates the technical aspects of the nominated products, but also takes into consideration ratings for customer-focused user support and the after-sales service.

idem telematics is presenting its range of solutions at the IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hanover at the BPW Group stand – C31 – in Hall 26 from 20 to 27 September.
