Transdanubia chooses Dynafleet for its 350-truck fleet

International transport and haulage company Transdanubia has chosen the latest version of Dynafleet, Volvo’s transport information system, for its 350 trucks. Over the next three years the company will replace its existing system with the new Dynafleet “Operate” package.
Austrian company Transdanubia Spedition GmbH has been an innovative Volvo customer for the past 36 years. Volvo delivers more than 100 vehicles per year to the family-owned company. In the beginning of this year, company owner KR Franz Grad made the decision to install Dynafleet in the entire fleet.

"We chose “Operate” due to the system’s compact design and the comprehensive driver and vehicle data it offers. The truck location facility and in particular the possibility for the driver and the dispatcher to communicate without difficulty are immensely important for optimal transport operations," explains Franz Grad.

The complete Dynafleet system consists of a range of services and functions, for instance a GPRS SIM card with unlimited communication between the Dynafleet system and the vehicles, system support provided by the Volvo Action Service as well an E-Learning module for both the Dynafleet system and driver training. It gives updated information reports in detail, via any PC with an Internet connection, on just about everything relating to the drivers and vehicles. In addition, the Dynafleet “Operate” package has a facility that allows drivers to communicate with colleagues and the office.
All these functions provide information to everyone in the transport chain and help the company report on and keep track of all the activities the driver is engaged in during a transport assignment.

The first truck equipped with the new Dynafleet, a Volvo FH with a 480 hp 13-litre engine, was delivered in February.
