Freightliner Trucks will provide its vocational customers with a Telogis telematics pre-wire option. Available in Cummins-equipped Freightliner Business Class M2, 108SD, and 114SD vocational trucks, Freightliner Trucks’ pre-wire option allows for a quick upfit of the Telogis system. This includes such Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) systems as Telogis Fleet, a GPS-based fleet management system; and Telogis Route, a multi-vehicle route planning, optimization, and scheduling system.
This new product offering gives the benefits and quality of an OEM pre-wire telematics installation. It initially focuses on five key industry segments (food/beverage, utilities, waste/refuse, construction, and government) with the goal of expanding throughout 2011 and beyond.
“As a truck manufacturer, it’s absolutely critical that we do everything we can to help our customers reduce operating costs by reducing idle times, reducing emissions, and streamlining their operations through advanced fleet management and routing,” said David Hames, general manager, marketing and strategy, Daimler Trucks North America. “Offering a telematics pre-wire option to our customers will make it easier for them to achieve these efficiencies, including the integration of planning and operational data, field variables and location-based intelligence to make informed business decisions in real time.”
Freightliner vocational truck customers can take advantage of this offering by contacting a local dealer and referencing option data code 786-079.
