WABCO Holdings Inc. which specializes in technologies that improve the safety, efficiency and connectivity of commercial vehicles has just announced the launch of TRAXEE, new fleet management system (FMS) which has been developed specially for small to medium size commercial fleets. WABCO will support the launch of the new product with the assistance of its extensive distributor and service network throughout Europe, the Middle East and Turkey from early July, 2018.
TRAXEE FMS is a fleet management system that offers even smaller fleet operators several business-critical functions with minimum investment and overhead expenses. It is positioned as a scalable and rapid pay-back solution that will make it easier for fleet operators to coordinate manage driver activity, fleet capacity and improve administrative efficiency. They can also use the system to get real-time status updates on individual trucks and drivers. The system is compliant with tachograph legal compliance requirements across Europe and Turkey.
Commenting on the new fleet management system, Nick Rens, WABCO President, Aftermarket, Digital Customer Services, Trailer and Off Highway Division said that small and medium-size commercial fleets play a key role in the logistics and transportation industry and WABCO developed the pioneering TRAXEE solution to cater to the growing demand from this sector. He added that the new product further demonstrated WABCO’s differentiating solutions for commercial fleets of all sizes. TRAXEE will serve as an affordable solution for small and medium-size fleets to enhance customer service while improving their operating performance.
The TRAXEE application can be installed on desktop computers as well as a wide range of mobile devices. TRAXEE’s on-board unit can be easily installed in every truck. The data that is captured can be streamed directly to the fleet manager to support real-time operating decisions. The system is supplied fully equipped with GPS as standard, and can thus pinpoint the precise location of every truck.
The unit that is installed on the truck can also connect to the truck’s digital tachograph and Controller Area Network (CAN bus) system. This allows the fleet manager gets real-time insight into driving and resting periods as well as key performance data, including fuel consumption and ECO-reporting. TRAXEE also facilitates better customer communication and fleet agility, as fleet managers can provide better delivery status information and receive a range of automated alerts and notifications.
WABCO has plans to showcase TRAXEE at multiple commercial vehicle and fleet trade fairs and expositions throughout 2018, including the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show that is scheduled to be held in Hanover from September 20th to 27th, 2018.
