Elevating Logistics Efficiency: The Partnership Between Fleethand and Schmitz Cargobull

In the ever-evolving landscape of logistics and fleet management, seamless integration and data transparency have become paramount. Recognizing this, Fleethand and Schmitz Cargobull have joined forces to bring unparalleled efficiency and comprehensive monitoring to their customers. This collaboration leverages Schmitz Cargobull’s TrailerConnect® Data Management Center, enabling customers to manage both their trucks and semi-trailers through the Fleethand platform.

A Unified Platform for Comprehensive Monitoring

With the Schmitz Cargobull TrailerConnect® Data Management Center, Fleethand customers can monitor not just their trucks but also their semi-trailers from a single platform. No more toggling between different portals or applications – everything managers need is conveniently consolidated in one place. For Fleethand customers, particularly those with refrigerated vehicles, this integration is a game-changer. Traditionally, managing refrigerated trailers involved navigating through separate systems, which often led to inefficiencies and time-consuming processes. Now, clients can effortlessly monitor and analyze data from both trucks and refrigerated trailers without the hassle of multiple logins or complex data transfers. Tomas Sergadejevas, CEO at Fleethand, highlights the efficiency gains:

“The biggest advantage is that the telematics of this integration provide a lot of useful data, such as temperature information, tire pressure information, tailgate status, odometer, etc. The TrailerConnect® Data Management Center also eliminates the cost of an additional GPS unit and its maintenance, thus avoiding additional installation work. Monitoring and controlling the data of such semi-trailers on a single Fleethand platform, together with the trucks, makes the work very efficient.”

A Vision for Transparent Supply Chains

For Schmitz Cargobull, the partnership aligns with their strategic vision of creating an open and transparent supply chain. Soeren Danielsen, Manager of Strategy & Business Development at Schmitz Cargobull, emphasizes the importance of collaboration: “To ensure our customers fully benefit from telematics data, different logistics systems need to work together and share information. We’re happy that Fleethand shares our vision regarding an open collaboration for a transparent supply chain.”

The TrailerConnect® Data Management Center empowers customers with full control over their data, allowing them to efficiently share selected information with Fleethand. This intelligent linking of vehicle, tour, and order data enables a more comprehensive data selection, processing, and transmission, enhancing overall logistics management.

Soeren Danielsen adds, “The TrailerConnect® Data Management Center stands for connectivity and transparency through controlled data exchange. Everyone involved along the supply chain benefits from this.”

A Future of Intelligent Connectivity

The ability to intelligently link and process various data points—from vehicle and tour information to order details—ensures that the Fleethand platform remains a robust tool for logistics management. The future of fleet management lies in such integrations, where data flows seamlessly across systems, providing a comprehensive view and control over every aspect of logistics operations.

The collaboration partnership between Fleethand and Schmitz Cargobull is a testament to the power of shared vision and open collaboration in achieving a transparent and efficient supply chain. By integrating the TrailerConnect® portal with Fleethand’s platform, fleet managers gain unparalleled visibility and control, driving efficiency and reducing costs.
