WABCO Holdings has signed a strategic agreement with RIO, the digital brand of global commercial vehicle manufacturer, the TRATON GROUP. Wabco is a well known supplier of braking control systems and other advanced technologies that improve the safety, efficiency and connectivity of commercial vehicles.
Under the agreement, RIO will leverage WABCO’s advanced Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) within its cloud-based connectivity environment to support the European logistics industry.
This important agreement extends WABCO’s FMS portfolio into a fully digital, cloud-based open platform for freight transport that supports all brands of truck. RIO, which is rapidly expanding its customer base across Europe, matches leading suppliers with the best tailored solutions to support fleets and enable them to “pick and choose” from a broad range of cutting-edge digital tools.
WABCO’s advanced FMS solutions will interface with RIO’s partners and will be available to RIO customers in early 2019. Specifically, RIO will integrate WABCO’s TX-SOCIAL™ which analyzes and manages tachograph and driver recorded data as well as TX-TRAILERPULSE™, an innovative and cost-efficient trailer-specific telematics solution.
Further extending WABCO’s advanced FMS capabilities, this important new agreement represents the latest step in WABCO’s acceleration of its industry partnerships. This includes recent agreements with a leading Indian original equipment manufacturer and a major global trailer builder.
TX-TRAILERPULSE is a cost-efficient trailer-specific telematics solution that combines real-time track and trace functionality with additional trailer health and diagnostic information. WABCO TX-SOCIAL is an intuitive administrative software solution which helps fleets manage tacho read-outs and social data. The software supports fleet legal compliance thanks to the automated driver activity and expense reports produced by the system and is able to easily export the data for controlling authorities. The solution further helps to simplify payroll administration.
