Ziegler Group equips European heavy goods fleet with Trimble CarCube solution
The product offers a suite of features designed to improve efficiency and communication between fleet operators and their drivers. These include driver identification; navigation capabilities; task planning and status reporting; trailer identification and verification; journey time assistance to comply with European Union regulations for drivers; integrated Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road (CMRs) transportation documentation scanning; and two-way driver data communications.
Daniel Verschelde, European information systems director at the Ziegler Group, said: 'As a freight forwarder operating in European markets, we needed an advanced international fleet management solution and service. CarCube meets all of our requirements. The Trimble CarCube is very easy to use, which is essential to help ensure acceptance of the tool by our drivers. The solution is also adaptable. For example, during the field trial we selected the option of installing an on-board scanner to allow CMRs to be transmitted immediately if drivers faced any issues with deliveries. Finally, we measured the ease with which CarCube could be integrated with our internal transport planning applications.'
