Truck Management with Advanced Telematics

ORBCOMM’s Truck Management platform is the most comprehensive, open, scalable and reliable truck telematics solution on the market today. By combining driver-focused in-cab devices based on Android, BT 500 truck tracking hardware and powerful back-end reporting from FleetManager, ORBCOMM’s truck platform helps you achieve higher ROI by improving compliance with tachograph rules and working time legislation, driver performance, fleet safety, operational efficiency and workforce productivity.

Comply with Tachograph and Working Time Legislation
Protect the fleet with the most accurate and up-to-date tachograph information, automatic data download, customised reporting, integrated driver infringement letters and in-cab compliance scoring apps.

  • Live Data from TachoVision: Plan ahead with live data on compensation rules, extended driving days, daily/weekly rest periods and much more.
  • Automated Downloads: Eliminate wait times and administration costs of manual downloads with automated, remote, scheduled tachograph downloads.
  • Scheduled Reporting: Full tachograph analysis with a large suite of standard and customised reports.
  • Driver Infringement Reporting: Leave letters and calendar controls remove the need for third-party analysis and processing.
  • In-Cab Compliance: Communicate to the driver in the cab on mobile devices.

Enhance both Fleet and Driver Safety
Keep your fleet’s assets and reputation protected by improving truck driver safety through correcting unsafe driving behaviours that lead to accidents, fines and higher insurance risks.

  • Driver Performance Scoring: Give live, on-board driver scoring, feedback and coaching to drivers who are measured on safety, compliance and driving performance
  • Safety Reporting and Analysis: Review how drivers operate different vehicles across the fleet and score drivers on safety data points such as anticipation, harsh acceleration and deceleration, harsh braking, speeding and hard cornering.
  • Truck-Specific Navigation: Select safe and optimal routes based on vehicle height, weight and length restrictions.
  • Electronic DVIR: Complete Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports at the push of a button.

Improve Fleet Productivity
Enhance customer communications and workflow for better asset utilisation, fewer empty miles and reduced overtime costs.

  • Driver Messaging: Improve communication between drivers and the office, using customisable form messages and text-to-speech functionality for additional safety.
  • Jobs & Workflow: Organise drivers and vehicles with Jobs and Workflow. Automatically schedule drivers’ work for the day to improve customer communications.
  • Media Portal: Keep drivers informed with training guides, videos and images distributed to individuals or groups.
  • In-Cab Scanning: Enable drivers to scan documents, capture signatures and take vehicle images with in-cab scanning.

Boost Fleet Efficiency
Reduce operating and maintenance costs, improve utilisation and mitigate financial risks through real-time truck tracking and cargo visibility, reduced risk of fuel loss and preventive maintenance.

  • Live Truck Tracking: Live views show vehicle location and status information including driver name, drive time remaining, fuel level and more. See stop details, trip information and route replay and monitor against predefined fleet KPIs.
  • Fuel Management: Use the Fuel Auditor to protect against fuel theft by comparing actual fuel burned to fuel purchased over any period. Monitor fuel down to the last litre; the Fuel Auditor records fuel tank levels every five minutes to detect fill and extraction events together with the time, date and location of each event.
  • Maintenance Planner: Schedule services and inspections based on time elapsed (e.g. every six months) or distance.
