Newsletter January 2021

Truck-trailer detection in TISLOG, truck parking app, new accessories and new webinars

Newsletter der TIS GmbH aus Bocholt

Bocholt, January 26, 2021

Markus Vinke - Gescchäftsführer der TIS GmbH

Over the years, our TISLOG logistics software has developed into a multifunctional solution for various application areas in logistics, among others also for fleet management. In the first edition of the newsletter in 2021, we are reporting about a lesser-known yet extremely useful function in our software: the truck-trailer detection.

Unfortunately, most truck drivers are painfully familiar with the challenge of finding a parking space. Now a new truck parking space app from the R + V subsidiary KRAVAG can help. The offer, which is extremely interesting for drivers and fleet owners, connects companies and enables them to find and book truck parking spaces on enclosed premises.
Find out how this works in our telematics blog.

Anyone who controls their vehicle fleet digitally not only needs software but also the right hardware. Therefore, as a full-range supplier, we also hold hardware from well-known manufacturers ready in our product portfolio, under the brand name TISWARE.
In addition, our specialists at TIS develop clever accessories for this hardware under the brand name TISPLUS.
You will find the latest accessories from our in-house development in this newsletter.

In February it's time again, time to start our new free webinars in 2021. In this edition you will find the dates in February. Take a look and register now, because the first online courses will already be held on February 8th, 2021.

Enjoy reading this newsletter!

The topics of this issue

Many advantages for fleet management through truck-trailer detection in the TISLOG logistics software

Today, numerous large and small logistics companies rely on digital solutions for automated data acquisition. Scheduling and mobile order management are handled on the go with the help of telematics applications such as TISLOG from TIS GmbH.
So far, a little less known, but no less useful, are the possible applications of these technologies in the field of fleet management.
Therefore, today we are dedicating an article to this special area of application and introduce the intelligent truck-trailer detection in our TISLOG logistics software to you.

KRAVAG app for the truck parking space search

Safety first when parking, that could be the slogan of KRAVAG Truck Parking. An app that is as hip and useful as your own parking lot, especially in these times.

Every day, professional drivers face the challenge of finding a suitable parking space for their semi truck and trailer in time for the start of their break or at the end of the legally permitted driving time.
The new KRAVAG app helps drivers with a special offer: truck parking spaces on enclosed grounds with various amenities.
Find out how it works in this article, written by our colleague, Oliver Krahmer, for our Telematics Magazine.
