Wed. J. De Bruyn & Zonen (NL) equips trucks with Transics’ fleet management solution

Confident that Transics’ solutions will help raise efficiency, cut costs and boost sustainable image

Transics, the European leader in fleet management solutions, has signed an agreement with Wed. J. De Bruyn & Zonen, at its booth during the recent ICT & Logistiek trade fair. The Dutch logistics services provider will equip its entire fleet – 56 trucks – with TX-MAX on-board computers and TX-CONNECT back office software, which will be integrated into ORTEC TD – a software suite purchased just recently too. De Bruyn is confident that Transics will help raise efficiency and save costs, thus making its business more profitable. Moreover, the eco-driving functionality will reinforce its image as a sustainable, eco-friendly carrier.

De Bruyn & Zonen, which took over De Rijk Transport en Logistics in 2011, provides national and European transport and warehousing services. Boasting a fleet of 56 trucks and 100 trailers, the carrier employs 70 drivers and 4 freight planners, who ensure high-quality services. Until today, De Bruyn ran a Centric ERP package, including modules for administration, wage calculation, planning and fleet management. As the trucks did not feature on-board computers, freight planners and drivers communicated by phone. In its search for new ways to drive its competitive edge, De Bruyn decided to join forces with market leader Transics.

No more surprises

De Bruyn’s exceptional commitment to quality is reflected in, for example, the high-quality training courses it provides to its entire staff and its quality management system to ISO 9001, ISO 2000 and GMP standards. “Competition is fierce in our industry. So quality is crucial to retain an edge – as are cost management and efficiency. Transics can help us in all these fields. We believe that their solutions will generate a fast Return on Investment, by offering detailed insight into our costs, ensuring more meticulous planning in order to, e.g. reduce waiting times and avoid unpleasant surprises, and by boosting our sustainable image,” said Xavier Duyn, General Manager, Wed. J. De Bruyn & Zonen. “Equally interesting is that TX-CONNECT, Transics’ back office software, can be seamlessly integrated into the existing systems. For all these reasons, Transics helps us even better achieve our motto “Always on the road, Always on time”. And much more besides.”
