Transics Will Equip the Entire Commercial Vehicle Fleet of DISCORDIA, its First Customer in Bulgaria, With Advanced Fleet Management Solutions

Transics International, a full solutions provider for truck, driver, trailer, cargo and subcontractor management, will equip the entire commercial vehicle fleet of DISCORDIA, a Bulgarian provider of international transport services, with its advanced fleet management solutions (FMS). Thereby, Transics will further expand its reach in the European market.

Didier Nulens, Global Sales, Marketing and Operations Leader at Transics: “Headquartered in Sofia, DISCORDIA is a very agile international freight transport company, with a strong focus on operational excellence, built on partnerships with strategic suppliers. To meet their need for a uniform telematics solution, we will equip part of their multi-brand fleet trucks with Transics’ FMS. DISCORDIA is Transics’ first customer in Bulgaria, paving the way to further strengthen our market position in the Eastern European Region.”

Transics will supply advanced fleet management technologies to DISCORDIA, including TX-SKY and TX-CONNECT. TX-SKY is a fixed mounted on-board computer with a touchscreen. It is fully integrated into Transics’ TX-CONNECT back office software and connected to the vehicle’s CAN bus and tachograph. TX-SKY registers all truck and driver information as well as data from other sources, such as document scanners. As a secured gateway, TX-SKY enables the driver and dispatcher to exchange information in real time.

Hristo Hristov, President and CEO of DISCORDIA AD: “We searched for an advanced solution with full integration between our Enterprise Resource Planning and the telematics solution. We selected Transics, as their Web service platform allows us to quickly integrate our back office application with the fleet management solution. In this way, we can significantly increase our productivity utilizing one single platform.”

Starting now by equipping 20 new trucks, the installation process will continue over the next four years. In addition, DISCORDIA plans to invest in Transics’ driver app TX-FLEX, a mobile add-on for the TX-SKY on-board computer which facilitates all driver activities outside the truck cabin such as barcode scanning, picture transfer, digital signatures and customer comments, pallet information and problem reporting. The data streams are synchronized via Bluetooth with the TX-SKY and sent to the TX-CONNECT back office platform. Thus, the dispatcher can react and handle accordingly to this information in real time.

Willi Betz Applies Transics’ Advanced Telematics Solutions to Further Enhance its European Fleet

One of the most vital challenges for fleet managers is optimizing their vehicle fleet capacity and processes in order to meet customer demand. Willi Betz, a well-known international forwarding and transport company in Europe, is well aware of that. The logistics expert equips approximately 370 commercial vehicles in Europe with Transics’ advanced telematics solutions, including the fixed TX-SKY on-board computer and TX-CONNECT back office software.

Dietmar Munding, Project Leader at Willi Betz: “A year ago, we started substituting our old, satellite-based solution with the advanced Transics’ telematics solutions. By now, we have equipped more than 120 trucks in eight of our European subsidiaries with TX-SKY on-board computers. The solution helps us to significantly upgrade our fleet management capabilities. Based on the positive results, we decided to equip an additional 250 trucks with Transics’ advanced telematics solution by the end of this year.”

Enabling Willi Betz to meet all customer needs such as on-time delivery, TX-SKY is connected to the vehicle’s CAN bus and tachograph, tracking and exchanging all driver- and truck-related information in real time. Via Transics’ online Web service platform, the company’s Transport Management System is integrated into the TX-CONNECT back office software.

Also integrated within the back office platform is Transics’ document management solution TX-DOCSCAN, which allows drivers to forward transport documents directly from the cab, thus accelerating billing and payment processes. Furthermore, the navigation functionality is linked to the order and charge-based workflow, improving driver efficiency.

Both companies are committed to fully analyzing and understanding their customers’ needs, in order to deliver professional solutions that perfectly match demands.
