Munich/Ulm, 1/9/2022 --- telematics creates total transparency in the world of transport with cargofleet 3 portal – the key question is: who has control of the data? Market leader idem telematics has now made it possible for hauliers to manage transport data relating to specific trips and orders themselves and decide which specific end customers to forward it to. The open-system cargofleet 3 portal expands the range of services offered by transport companies and at the same time strengthens their data sovereignty.
The digitalisation of transport enables total transparency across the entire supply chain. That's why more and more hauliers are being asked to share the telematics data with their clients. Hauliers do not always have this transparency in mind. idem telematics, the European market leader for open-system transport telematics, is now making it possible for hauliers to control and specifically share their trip and order data like never before: The telematics portal cargofleet 3 enables trip- and order-related data management for the first time. Trip data can either be entered directly in the portal or transferred from an external transport management system (TMS). For each individual trip, the haulier can operatively monitor the transport and specifically forward data to the shipper or other partners – right down to the continuously updated estimated time of arrival (ETA) and individually selected tracking information. In addition, trip-specific temperature reports and consumption calculations as well as many other data can also be specifically evaluated and forwarded as the haulier pleases.
However, more service and more control doesn't mean more work – on the contrary: the cargofleet 3 portal enables data evaluation to be configured automatically. This means that alarms can be set automatically for each individual trip (e.g. geofencing and temperature alarms). Classic idem telematics: the cargofleet 3 portal functions is an open system that functions independently of vehicle manufacturers' systems. idem telematics will present the new features of the portal at the IAA Transportation trade fair from 20 - 25 September 2022 (BPW Group stand in Hall 26/A30).
Jens Zeller, CEO of idem telematics, states, "By networking vehicle, driver and freight, the vehicle operator is able to more efficiently organise transport and significantly expand their range of services. Nevertheless, it is still crucial that vehicle operators retain full sovereignty over their data and do not become dependent on third-party systems. With cargofleet 3, we simultaneously strengthen the haulier's service capabilities and data sovereignty. That's our contribution to the 'Internet of Transport'."
