Contino equips its fleet with Transics’ fleet management solution

Contino order strengthens Transics’ foothold in the Danish transport market

Fleet management expert Transics is quickly making inroads into the Scandinavian transport and logistics market. Just recently, the company signed a major deal with Danish carrier Contino. Transics will equip more than 300 Contino trucks with its TX-MAX on-board computers, which will be seamlessly integrated into the carrier’s existing IT solutions. Contino is confident that Transics will help it raise efficiency, cut costs, improve customer services and even reduce its impact on the environment.

Firmly rooted in Denmark, the Contino group has a large, modern fleet that conveys goods to and from Denmark or between other European destinations. To offer its customers the best possible services, Contino strongly relies on state-of-the-art technology. After a few months of extensive testing, Transics’ fleet management solutions proved a perfect fit for that strategy. Contino was so impressed with the advanced functionality and easy integration of Transics’ TX-MAX on-board computers that it immediately decided to replace its existing solution and install TX-MAX devices in all trucks.

Carrier is impressed by features like TX-ECO and TX-DOCSCAN

While the basic fleet management features that Transics offers, such as positioning and smooth communication between dispatchers and truck drivers, all met Contino’s requirements and wishes, there were some extra features, such as TX-ECO and TX-DOCSCAN, that even exceeded the carrier’s expectations.

“At Contino, we make every effort possible to lessen the burden of our activities on the environment. TX-ECO really is a great tool to help our drivers reduce fuel consumption and costs, while saving the environment,” explains Allan Jepsen, CEO of Contino Group. “The TX-DOCSCAN mobile scanner, which is connected to the on-board computer, allows drivers to directly scan all documents in their cab and forward them to the office. In this way, it helps us speed up jobs like invoicing, which, again, helps us save money.” In addition, Contino praises the driving and resting times module and translation features.

Peter Frost Rasmussen, CEO of Contino Transport, also points to a good chemistry between Contino, Transics and their Danish representative Christian Johnstad-Møller.

Seamless integration of Transics’ systems into existing ERP system

The extensive, powerful functionality was one reason for Contino to select Transics. Another argument pro-Transics is the Web services platform, which ensures a user-friendly and quick integration of the fleet management system into other software packages. The TX-CONNECT back office software will be seamlessly integrated into Contino’s ERP system.

Spreading the word in Denmark

Transics welcomes this new agreement with Contino. Walter Mastelinck, CEO: “Contino is a big player on the Scandinavian market. This new deal will further highlight our strength in fleet management and reinforce our foothold in Denmark and neighbouring countries.”
