Logistics company, Deutsche Post DHL, is equipping its trailer fleet across Europe with telematics systems from Idem Telematics.
Based in Munich and Ulm, Idem Telematics is part of the BPW Group and specialises in digital networking of transport vehicles.
The open system of the Idem Telematics platform was reportedly key to securing the DHL contract: the system has no problem integrating software applications and hardware from third-party suppliers and can be flexibly expanded and adapted.
“The Idem Telematics platform can be quickly linked into existing IT infrastructures,” said Matthias Bohm, Vice President, Global Sourcing (ground fleet) at Deutsche Post DHL. “This means that we can provide a consistent Europe-wide solution and also take into account the individual requirements of our national subsidiaries with flexibility.’
“We are immensely proud of this contract and have already started kitting out the first DHL national subsidiaries,” said Idem Telematics Managing Director, Jens Zeller. “Customer feedback has been consistently positive so far.”
One key element of the all-in-one transport solution from idem telematics is the robust TC Trailer Gateway onboard computer, which gathers, processes and links up data from sensors on the vehicle. The cargofleet3 online portal enables clear and needs-based processing, graphical presentation and exports of the data.
