UD Trucks introduces telematics across their range

Telematics is a high-tech wireless communication service that helps keep trucks on the road for longer, reduces costs, allows for planned maintenance, and provide immediate assistance case of emergency. As it is now integrated into every UD Trucks produced in South Africa, fleet owners can maximise the effectiveness and profitability of their business.

This high-tech wireless communication will pay an increasingly important role in the ever-changing transport environment. It empowers fleet owners to streamline their operations, getting the most out of their investment while delivering added value, included enhanced turnaround times, to their customers.

UD Trucks telematics system basically monitors the heartbeat of the truck as it provides real-time positioning, information on preventative maintenance and manages the breakdown assistance. This also provides fleet owners and UD Trucks dealers with all the information they need to do the required preventative maintenance on time, and to schedule standard services more efficiently.

Connectivity is the enabler of both automation and electromobility, technology that UD Trucks has already made great strides in. UD Trucks has around 45 000 vehicles connected worldwide through the UD Information Service, which uses data collected from each vehicle to help improve uptime. By analysing digital data collected from customers driving behaviour, UD Trucks also gains insight on how to design even safer more dependable trucks.

“We are committed to ensuring that our customers receive the full benefits of the solutions and products we are developing, which will ultimately make life better for everyone in our society,” said Filip van Den Heede, managing director of UD Trucks South Africa. “Ultimately, it is about peace of mind. Empowering you to protect, guide and utilise your fleet to its fullest potential,” explained Van den Heede.

UD Trucks Telematics Services will come standard on every new UD Trucks vehicle purchased, backdated to 1 March 2020. The service is free for one year from date of purchase, whereby fleet owners will have the option to renew the contract.
