Martin Baur GmbH switches to TIS
Bocholt, June 6, 2020
Martin Baur GmbH, member of the CTL general cargo network, is planning to simplify its local and long-distance transport processes and warehouse handling with the TISLOG telematics solution from TIS. The switch will take place in two steps in the course of the introduction of the transport management system (TMS) Komalog from Transdata. Overall, Martin Baur GmbH expects a change in fleet costs and a significant simplification of administration.
As a first step, the 35 trucks for local and long-distance transport will be converted this year. Vehicle units of the TISPLUS telematicbox Truck 3 are installed, which are connected to the digital tachograph and the FMS/CAN interface. In addition to the pure location, the solution thus offers great potential for other functions, such as the remote transmission of driving and rest times. These are transferred from the tachographs to the telematics boxes and from there via mobile radio via the TIS data center to the TISLOG server at Baur. In addition, each vehicle receives a Samsung tablet with the TISLOG app, which drivers can use to call up their current driving and rest times, manage orders and update their shipment status.
By January 2021, the eight vehicles used in the CTL general cargo network are also planned to be converted to TISLOG. Here the drivers and the employees working in the warehouse are equipped with mobile TISLOG scanners. In the future, further expansion steps will follow, allowing, for example, the forklift movements in the warehouse to be controlled as well.
"In addition to the existing references, TIS is supported by the almost limitless expandability and versatility of the solution, which fulfills all of our requirements in local and long-distance transport as well as in the warehouse," explains partner Sina Baur. Adding to this does the "simple and far-reaching configurability with which TISLOG can be adapted to our own wishes".
