Schmitz and Krone to share telematics data

Schmitz Cargobull and Krone Telematics have made their telematics data collectively available via individual access points.

Transport companies using telematics systems from either manufacturer can now access the data from both, regardless of the hardware installed or the type of telematics portal, a joint statement said.

Both companies claimed that common platforms and standardisation would make data processing and management easier and cheaper.

“Standardisation becomes an elementary building block for holistic fleet management and reduces internal process costs significantly,” said in the joint statement by Krone Service MD Ralf Faust and Schmitz Cargobull Telematics managing director Marnix Lannoije.

“Open data processing becomes highly important not only for monitoring, securing and tracking the load, but for all automation processes around the trailer. Ultimately, our customers only look for one thing: they want to retrieve all vehicle data as quickly, easily and transparently as possible in order to manage their fleets even more efficiently. This we now assure with the compatibility of Cargobull Telematics and Krone Telematics.

“Every customer can retrieve all the data they require in the preferred telematics portal. A real digital milestone for many transport companies”.
