Increased efficiency with connectivity

The world is facing challenges in terms of globalization and urbanization. The demand for even more efficient transportation of both people and goods is growing. When it comes to efficiency, uptime is essential – and connectivity is one of the keys to keep vehicles and machines up and running.

Increased efficiency with connectivity

Data from connected customer assets in combination with machine learning enables even better uptime services. For example, Renault Trucks offers Excellence Predict, a solution that predicts wear on crucial parts, plans services, and orders spare parts in advance. Other possible data-based solutions could be vehicles that share traffic information with each other, or fleet managing systems that optimize routes in real time.

Connectivity enables handling of complex situations, but it can also solve more tangible problems. One major issue within the transportation field today is the shortage of drivers. Real-time connectivity data and digitalization open up opportunities to match drivers with trucks and loads in a more flexible way. Drivers’ time is valuable. Finding ways to share drivers, or provide flexible set-ups adapted to their individual needs, could lead to increased driver availability.

Increased productivity is essential for freight and construction companies. Utilizing the full potential of vehicles and machines means both higher productivity and a better environmental footprint. One example is the onboard system CareTrack that allows customers to monitor load efficiency, number of cycles, and overload percentages.

There is no doubt that connectivity will increase efficiency. Other possible connected solutions to increase productivity in our customers’ business could be vehicles that share traffic information with each other, or fleet managing systems that optimize routes in real-time.
