Transics, Europe’s leading player in high-end fleet management solutions for the transport and logistics sector, reports a major contract with the Swedish police force for the supply of tachograph data download and archiving solutions. In a first phase, over 300 police officers throughout Sweden will be equipped with software and hardware to manage and monitor tachograph data and control carriers’ compliance with legal requirements. For Transics, the tender win illustrates the strategic value add of last year’s takeover of DIS, developer of analog and digital tachograph download and archiving solutions. The contract win also proves the market potential of DIS’ products outside its French home market.
Transics/DIS hardware and software solutions will enable 300 police officers throughout Sweden to access information contained in analogue and digital tachographs on the roadside as well as on company premises and to control compliance with Swedish and European driving and resting time legislations. Transics was awarded this contract following a Europe-wide competitive public tender organised by the Swedish National Police.
Market leader in tachograph data management solutions
Tachograph data management solutions are an integral part of Transics’ range of high-end fleet management solutions. The software and hardware was developed by Transics’ French subsidiary DIS, a leader in the field of tachograph solutions that was acquired by Transics in April 2007. DIS has over 15 years of experience in the field of tachograph data management and its solutions are also used by the French control authorities as well as by hundreds of transport companies in Europe.
Extended value proposition
“With the digital tachograph being compulsory for trucks within every European member state since 2006, the demand for smart systems to manage tachograph data has risen substantially over the past two years. The takeover of DIS was a great opportunity to offer our existing and future customers a fully fledged fleet management solution, including advanced tachograph data management solutions. For DIS, the acquisition provided a chance to strengthen its organisation and to leverage upon Transics’ European footprint. The contract win in Sweden illustrates the potential of this acquisition and underlines Transics’ innovative product leadership, not only for fleet operators but also for related parties such as controlling authorities” said Walter Mastelinck, Transics’ CEO.
