Your digitalisation advantages in detail

Information lead through transport monitoring

Our vehicles are equipped with state-of-the-art telematics and monitoring occurs automatically. The systems continuously calculate the estimated time of arrival (ETA) taking into consideration the driver's remaining travel time and the current traffic. So we always know where your load is and when it reaches the loading or unloading point. In the event of unplanned deviations, our Transport Manager receives information immediately and can check alternative solutions.
