The Swedish truck manufacturer, Scania, has launched a new fleet management system that connects the truck fleet to the office via the Internet.
New modules in the system can be combined in several ways to suit operators' needs. Communication is either one-way, allowing the office to monitor each vehicle in the fleet, or two-way, enabling interaction between office and vehicle. The messaging system can be used to handle driving orders. Positioning and alarm modules are also available.
Web-based office interface provides around-the-clock access via the local web sites of Scania distributors. Password-protection gives users exclusive access to their own data.
