- Daimler Fleetboard GmbH and idem telematics form partnership
- Truck and trailer information displayed in real time on a customer interface
- "idem cargofleet Trailer" app planned for Mercedes Benz truck app portal
Munich/Ulm, 5 June 2019 ---Combining truck and trailer data on a single interface displaying information on both systems in real time – industry-leading telematics specialists Daimler Fleetboard and idem telematics are offering their customers the chance to do exactly that through an innovative partnership. The companies are forming a partnership involving interconnection between interfaces, displaying data from different systems on each interface. Fleetboard, a full subsidiary of Daimler, is in the truck manufacture industry and completes the information and data service with the help of truck and trailer telematics specialists idem telematics.
Advantages for customers
No matter what the customer's using – whether it's the Fleetboard customer interface or the cargofleet 3 Portal by idem telematics – the customer views all truck and trailer data in a single portal, saving crucial time in day-to-day planning.
Data picked up on the drawbar trailer is pushed directly to the dispatcher via the connected system. This enables communication of details such as the position, EBS data, load status and real-time information on brake pad wear, tyre pressure or tyre temperature on the semi-trailer. Stats from cold transport are also supplied. The temperature display offered by idem telematics is certified in accordance with EN12830 - offering fully reliable monitoring of cold transport. Optional two-way communication also allows the user to change refrigeration setpoints remotely and activate corresponding alarms individually.
The full range of functions should be available for use in the relevant interfaces by the end of 2019.
Once the "cargofleet Trailer" telematics app has been installed in the vehicle via the Mercedes-Benz truck app portal, the driver can also use trailer data live in the cockpit. At the transport logistic trade fair in Munich, customers were able to view semi-trailer status information in the driver's cabin on the new Actros' dashboard. Once the existing interfaces are activated via a service, trailer data from other telematics suppliers can also be displayed in the Actros in the idem app. Orders, as well as vehicle data, can be sent, displayed and linked to the integrated Fleetboard navigation.
Data exchange is a matter of trust
"We're looking forward to this partnership combining our companies' knowledge and expertise allowing us to offer players in the transport and logistics industry added value in their day-to-day business," says Jens Zeller, CEO of idem telematics. "We can help each other tap into new opportunities and supply our shared customer base with even more information. Data exchange is essential, but it is also always a matter of trust. In Daimler Fleetboard, we have found a completely professional and trustworthy partner and we're proud to be going on this journey with them."
