Transportation is becoming more dynamic trough the rise of new technologies. One of the most significant changes is the way that transportation fleets can be monitored from a distance. Companies are provided with detailed information about their fleet, which enables them to plan the schedule and vehicles in the most efficient way possible.

Nedap plays pivotal role within these changes. Systems automatically conduct error free data gathering pertaining to vehicle and vehicle related activities. Due to our solutions distribution centres, mining operators, industrial factories and public transport services can work more efficiently and improve processes.

Increased efficiency and process automation 
Vehicle identification ensures that equipment such as (un)loading docks, weighing platforms and refuelling stations can be utilised more efficiently by facilitating  process automation. As a result more transactions can be handled during the same time period. As a consequence less equipment is needed and capital costs are decreased.

Error free real time tracking
Integrating important yard management information such as vehicle maintenance history, fuel consumption and availability becomes readily available, enabling efficient yard and fleet management. Dynamic driver and vehicle situations can be monitored to analyse vehicle movement, and keep track of drivers by vehicle. Operational changes can easily be implemented based on the data collected.

Improved vehicle and equipment utilisation
By identifying vehicles at several strategic locations in a vehicle depot, fleet managers can obtain detailed information about of vehicle readiness. Based on this real time information vehicle utilisation can also be increased thus potentially leading to reduced new vehicle requirements.

Applications include:

  • Access control
  • Yard management
  • Corridor monitoring
  • Fuelling
  • Weighing
  • Washing
  • Loading
