Telematics – a widely used tool for internal optimisation
The term telematics refers to the integration of GPS-technology, communication channels and board computers in the vehicle. This synergy relates to the use of wireless devices and “black box” technologies to transmit data to freight forwarding companies and customers in real time, as well as providing assistance to the driver in the form of route optimisation, traffic forecasts and notifications.
