WABCO Holdings has announced that Vos Logistics has signed an agreement with WABCO for its advanced Fleet Management Solutions.
WABCO is a known supplier of braking control systems and other advanced technologies that improve the safety, efficiency and connectivity of commercial vehicles. Boasting a network of 30 branches throughout Europe Vos Logistics is one of Europe’s biggest logistics players.
Under the agreement, WABCO will deliver 1,200 TX-SKY™ on-board computers developed by its digital solutions business. TX-SKY will replace the existing FMS system that Vos Logistics has been relying on for over 20 years. Vos Logistics will also use WABCO’s TX-FLEX™ app to support its drivers with out-of-cabin activities.
The solutions will be provided through WABCO’s Fleet Solutions business which has been created to deliver a global portfolio of parts, solutions and services that are designed to help make leading fleets like Vos Logistics leaner, greener and safer.
“In 2018, we identified the need for a new telematics solution, both hardware and software, to improve communication between internal and external stakeholders, gain enhanced efficiency levels and deliver a better service towards our end customers,” said Pieter Derksen, Vos Logistics Purchase Manager. “WABCO worked out a proof of concept, combining a fixed TX-SKY on-board computer and its TX FLEX driver app. We tested the platform in 15 vehicles from five subsidiaries and it met every single one of our requirements.”
“We are happy and proud that a major logistics service provider like Vos Logistics has decided to place its faith in our technologies and replace its existing FMS with our advanced platform,” said Peter Bal, WABCO Business Leader Fleets Solutions, EMEA. “We look forward to supporting Vos Logistics in achieving ever greater levels of efficiency and safety throughout their ecosystem and to help them maintain their leading position in the transport market.”
