Helping fleets become leaner, greener and safer, the latest expansion of ZF’s capabilities addresses the important role of LCVs within the logistics and transportation industry.

“Light Commercial Vehicles fulfill a vitally important role within the logistics and transportation industry and our pioneering suite of LCV solutions is specifically designed to address growing demand from this key sector,” said Peter Bal, Business Leader, Digital Customer Services EMEA with ZF Commercial Vehicle Control Systems. “Further demonstrating ZF’s differentiating solutions for commercial fleets of all sizes and vehicle types, this important launch reflects our unwavering determination to help operators and fleets achieve ever greater levels of safety, operational efficiency and customer service.”

Helping Fleets Become Safer

ZF’s relentless drive to enhance safety through its technologies is also underlined in its suite of LCV solutions. This includes furnishing fleet operators with a safety performance overview including real-time safety alerts to rapidly highlight driving style anomalies. Drivers are also offered greater peace of mind with the provision of a safety panic alarm hidden in the cabin. Further enhancing LCV security, ZF’s immobilizer solution prevents the vehicle from starting, unless the driver has correctly logged on to the system.

Helping Fleets Become Leaner and Greener

The new LCV solutions portfolio includes ZF’s Vehicle Tracking Solutions allowing fleet managers and vehicle operators to accurately track the location of each LCV and inform their customers of cargo arrival times. Additionally, dispatchers can assign the next job to the most appropriate driver based on factors such as the shortest travel times. This helps reduce mileage and fuel costs and helps ensure drivers arrive on time as well as improving customer response times.

At the heart of the front-end platform is the Transics-branded TX-FLEX™driver app. TX-FLEX is a one-stop shop to manage all elements of each individual delivery, including electronic signatures, photographs of delivered or damaged goods, barcode scans and any other detail that may be relevant to a specific delivery or collection. This extensive range of features embedded in one single app allows fleet managers and fleet drivers alike to further improve operational efficiency and customer service.
