Trimble’s CarCube on-board computers were successfully deployed in “Leszek i Agata” Sp. z o.o. truck tractors in January 2015. “Leszek i Agata,” which is part of the Oscar Group and headquartered in Tomaszów Lubelski, Poland, provides international transportation services for food and refrigerated products. Trimble’s telematics technologies have already brought tangible benefits to the company through lower fuel consumption.
“Leszek i Agata” realized that it needed a telematics system to plan journeys and to monitor and communicate with drivers since 2009, but due to complications in the Polish transportation market at the time many investments, including purchases of telematics systems, were put on hold.
With a large number of telematics system providers in the Polish market “Leszek i Agata” needed to carefully research what types of systems were available before it finally selected Trimble’s CarCube on-board computers. The key features of Trimble’s system included an affordable price, innovative technology and excellent customer service provided by Trimble during the planning, deployment stage, and actual use of the system.
In addition to fuel savings, another objective was to reduce carbon dioxide emissions as the company focused on implementing a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy. The company also expects to be able to improve its fleet management and to speed up the planning and dispatch processes involving its vehicles and drivers.
Preparations to roll out the Trimble telematics system for “Leszek i Agata” were made in 2014. In the beginning two people including a dispatcher were assigned for the deployment. Now, their jobs are to ensure that both dispatchers and drivers are adequately trained using the CarCube computer.
A truck makes money only when it is on the road. The goal of the Trimble CarCube on-board computers is to enable drivers on the road to increase mileage and reduce consumption whenever possible.
According to Paweł Wojtysiak of Trimble Transport & Logistics, “Leszek i Agata” is an excellent example of a comprehensive implementation of Trimble’s telematics system
