With DKV LIVE, the mobility service provider DKV is to launch a fully-fledged telematics system with numerous additional functions on the market. Its Track&Trace and Estimated Time of Arrival Services offer users real-time transparency along the supply chain – taking into account the driver’s individual driving and resting times. DKV LIVE also offers efficient route planning based on high-quality map material from Here. The route planning considers the fill level of the truck and any customer-specific discounts when selecting the closest and cheapest fuel station.
All customer’s need to do is connect a box the size of a packet of tissues to the FM (Fleet Management Interface) in the vehicle. This provides the necessary information, which can then be passed on and processed via the cloud. All data can be viewed in real time via the DKV LIVE Portal.
“DKV LIVE establishes digital solutions, which we already know as standard in the B2C sector, now also in the B2B segment for our customers,” explained Marco van Kalleveen, CEO of DKV Mobility. “This includes real-time tracking of deliveries and fleets, for example. On this basis, new services such as the exact determination of the estimated time of arrival can significantly increase transparency in the forwarding business, thus effectively reducing costs and saving CO”.
Numerous expansion stages for DKV LIVE are planned for the second half of the year. At that time, drivers and dispatchers will communicate via the DKV LIVE app and DKV LIVE will gradually be expanded into a comprehensive portal solution for intelligent fleet management.
