As Cabonline targets greater fleet efficiencies and precision ETAs for customers and drivers, it has switched to HERE Technologies. Cabonline is a European technology platform for the transport industry, and HERE Technologies is mapping and location services provider.
Cabonline is one of the largest taxi company in the Nordics and its technology platform powers everything from booking to dispatch to payment for multiple owned and affiliated taxi brands across the region. These include Taxi Kurir, Norgetaxi, TOPCAB, Kovanen, Taxi Skåne, Taxi Väst, Umeå Taxi and Sverigetaxi.
Supported by HERE Location Services, the company is targeting several benefits, including:
• More precise ETAs for customers and drivers, aided by HERE routing algorithms which draw on real-time, predictive and historical traffic data
• More precise ride cost estimations for customers
• Improved driver safety, aided by industry-leading map information that integrates data for taxi driving lanes, speed limits and electric vehicle charging points
• Improved post-trip analytics
HERE is also well-placed to support the company as it expands in on-demand transportation and logistics. This spring, Cabonline launched jip as a new brand in Trondheim, Norway, with a focus on attracting young professionals. The company also recently launched Reliver, a service for handling return goods that e-commerce customers order but do not want to keep, enabling transporters to move packages during times when cars are not highly utilized.
