Telematics: Kochtrans switches to TIS
Bocholt, May 5,2020
Kochtrans Patrick G. Koch GmbH, part of the CargoLine groupage network, is investing in a new transport management and telematics solution from TIS and is primarily aiming to increase the productivity of their contractors. In the future, automatic notification based on the geofencing function is also planned. The introductory phase is scheduled to be completed by July 2020.
"With TISLOG, TIS offers us a future-proof transport management and telematics system that enables us to obtain exact key figures and statistical evaluations of the tours actually completed without wasting time," explains Kochtrans Managing Director Erich Baumgärtel. The company plans to use the figures above all for a performance-based and motivating remuneration for the 22 transport companies that work for Kochtrans around the Munich metropolitan area with 100 vehicles a day.
As part of the introduction, the drivers will be equipped with Honeywell EDA 51 mobile computers with a telematics app developed by TIS. The app can be easily configured with the new Live Configurator (www.live-konfigurator.com) and guides the drivers step by step through the delivery process between order receipt and delivery receipt.
At Kochtrans, TISLOG will not only play an important role on the mobile end devices, but also in the central disposition. Both pick-up and delivery scheduling are covered by TIS. Dispatchers will be able to track the location of the vehicles, the expected arrival time at the recipient and the pick-up status in real time.
