WABCO Holdings Inc. (NYSE: WBC), a leading innovator and global supplier of technologies to improve the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicles, announced today that its fleet management solutions (FMS) company, Transics International, signed a groundbreaking contract with Austria-based Hödlmayr International, a leading auto transport and logistics company operating in 16 countries in Western and Eastern Europe.
Transics will equip Hödlmayr International’s entire fleet of more than 610 auto transport vehicles with its industry-leading fleet management system, thereby helping the company to further enhance its fleet’s safety performance and operational efficiency.
Transics will upgrade Hödlmayr vehicle transporters with advanced TX-SKY on-board computers, mobile applications for out-of-cabin activities and document management solutions. Transics will also install its web-based back office system TX-CONNECT for efficient truck, driver, trailer and cargo management. Transics expects to furnish Hödlmayr International’s entire fleet of auto transport vehicles by the first quarter of 2016. Installation will take place at select customer sites, as well as Transics- and WABCO-certified service partner locations.
“After a period of comprehensive testing and evaluation, we chose to equip our entire commercial vehicle fleet with Transics’ suite of advanced fleet management solutions,” said Markus Formann, Head of Corporate Purchasing and Fleet Management, Hödlmayr International. “Transics’ systems easily integrate with our existing software. They allow for maximum flexibility and adaptability to meet Hödlmayr International’s present and future business needs. We are also excited about Transics’ and WABCO’s extensive service network to help maintain the performance of our fleet across Europe.”
“As a result of WABCO’s strategic acquisition of Transics in 2014, customers can leverage the powerful combination of Transics’ fleet management solutions with WABCO’s commercial vehicle systems expertise and extensive service network,” said Nick Rens, WABCO President, Trailer Systems, Aftermarket and Off-Highway Division. “With this contract, we are demonstrating Transics’ ability to further expand its reach in the European marketplace.”
Transics’ fleet management solutions will enable Hödlmayr International to monitor its entire fleet of trucks in real time, using valuable information on location, route adherence, vehicle speed and delays to support key operating decisions. In addition, the system captures data on driver behavior such as braking, speeding, signaling and evasive maneuvers. The Transics solution now means that Hödlmayr International has a direct link between trucks, drivers and its home office. Furthermore, Transics’ FMS offering seamlessly integrates with Hödlmayr International’s own transport management software.
