DHL is networking transport fleets across Europe with idem telematics

Jul 11, 2019   Supply Chain

The global logistics provider Deutsche Post DHL is equipping its fleet of trailers across Europe with telematics systems from idem telematics.

Based in Munich and Ulm, idem telematics is part of the BPW Group and specialises in digital networking of transport vehicles.

With the largest individual contract in the company’s history, idem telematics is further strengthening its established position as European market leader. The open system of the idem telematics platform was key to securing the DHL contract: the system has no problem integrating software applications and hardware from third-party suppliers and can be flexibly expanded and adapted.

Matthias Bohm, vice president, Global Sourcing (ground fleet) at Deutsche Post DHL (pictured at right, with Ralf Merkelbach of BPW) said: "The idem telematics platform can be quickly linked into existing IT infrastructures. This means that we can provide a consistent Europe-wide solution and also take into account the individual requirements of our national subsidiaries with flexibility."

Jens Zeller, managing director of idem telematics said: "We are immensely proud of this contract and have already started kitting out the first DHL national subsidiaries. Customer feedback has been consistently positive so far."

One key element of the all-in-one transport solution from idem telematics is the robust TC Trailer Gateway onboard computer, which gathers, processes and links up data from sensors on the vehicle. The cargofleet3 online portal enables clear and needs-based processing, graphical presentation and exports of the data.

It was more than just the idem telematics software and hardware that impressed DHL: as a subsidiary of the BPW Group, idem telematics can also provide comprehensive Europe-wide coverage for services and spare parts supply.
