UD Trucks Telematics Services will now come standard on every new UD Trucks vehicle purchased, effective from 1 March 2020.
“We have extended telematics services to be included in the entire UD Trucks range,” said Filip Van den Heede, Managing Director of UD Trucks Southern Africa. “To maximise the profitability of your business, you need to be able to manage your fleet effectively, keeping them on the road for longer while reducing ongoing costs. UD Telematics Services is a high-tech wireless communications system designed to help you do just that.”
The service will be free for one year from date of purchase, whereby fleet owners will have the option to renew the contract.
UD Trucks’ telematics system basically monitors the heartbeat of the truck as it provides real-time positioning, information on preventative maintenance and manages the breakdown assistance. This also provides fleet owners and UD Trucks dealers with all the information they need to do the required preventative maintenance on time, and to schedule standard services more efficiently.
“It will help fleets to improve profitability by increasing vehicle uptime and enabling better fuel efficiency, while reducing unplanned stops and operational costs,” explained Van den Heede. “Ultimately, it is about peace of mind. Empowering you to protect, guide and utilise your fleet to its fullest potential.”
