ZF recnly announced the launch of a comprehensive new suite of fleet solutions specifically designed to improve the operational performance, safety and customer service levels of Light Commercial Vehicle operations across Europe. Helping fleets become leaner, greener and safer, the latest expansion of ZF’s capabilities addresses the important role of LCVs within the logistics and transportation industry. Fleet operators can access a comprehensive portfolio of proven technologies to manage trucks, trailers, drivers and LCVs from a single all in one back office platform.The new LCV solutions portfolio includes ZF’s Vehicle Tracking Solutions allowing fleet managers and vehicle operators to accurately track the location of each LCV and inform their customers of cargo arrival times. Additionally, dispatchers can assign the next job to the most appropriate driver based on factors such as the shortest travel times. This helps reduce mileage and fuel costs and helps ensure drivers arrive on time as well as improving customer response times.At the heart of the front-end platform is the Transics-branded TX FLEX driver app. TX FLEX is a one stop shop to manage all elements of each individual delivery, including electronic signatures, photographs of delivered or damaged goods, barcode scans and any other detail that may be relevant to a specific delivery or collection. This extensive range of features embedded in one single app allows fleet managers and fleet drivers alike to further improve operational efficiency and customer service.Helping manage rising fuel costs ZF offers comprehensive, real time visibility of fuel costs as part of the LCV solutions suite. Fleets with LCV operations can optimize their fueling strategies as a result of clear data on fuel consumption rates. Fleet managers can utilize a simple ranking system which includes driver performance, the distances they have covered, and the fuel consumed by their vehicle to determine the fuel efficiency per vehicle. A special fuel drop module can also detect and specify fuel level anomalies giving fleet managers peace of mind and greater control over how fuel is used.
