Efficient management of the logistics chain not only calls for high-performance telematics but also for intelligent planning and optimisation software. Thanks to an in-depth partnership with Ortec Logiplan GmbH, the Trimble Transport & Logistics CarCube now offers the basis for an intelligent fleet management in real time. This is made possible by the fact that the on-board computer sends not only the current sat nav position over an open interface, but also notifications from the driver, such as the current shipment status (loading times, waiting times at the customer or traffic jams) in order to find the best route at all times. The Dutch logistics services provider, Dijco Internationaal Transfportbedrijf, has also been won over by the advantages of this system integration and is now working with this strong IT partner for its food logistics.
