Belgian Wabco subsidiary Transics International has announced it will equip the entire commercial vehicle fleet of Norway’s largest food distributor ASKO NorgesGruppen with its fleet management solutions.
According to Wabco, ASKO’s 700 combined trucks and trailers will be outfitted with Transics TX-SKY on-board computers, mobile technologies, TX-TrailerGuard telematics and TX Connect back office software.
The software installations will begin mid-2015 in an attempt to enhance its fleet’s safety performance and operational efficiency. Transics expects to complete the project by the end of 2016.
“We are excited to deliver differentiating commercial vehicle fleet management solutions to ASKO as Norway’s largest food distributor continues to optimize its total fleet operations,” said Nick Rens, Wabco President, Trailer Systems, Aftermarket and Off-Highway Division.
“Transics’ fleet management solutions will enable ASKO to monitor our entire commercial vehicle fleet in real time,” said Svein Sollie, Transport Director, ASKO.
According to Wabco, Transics’ fleet management solutions will provide ASKO with information on location, route adherence, delivery time, fuel use and emissions, driving and resting times, axle load, tire pressure, as well as cargo temperature to support key operating decisions.
