Freightliner Trucks will offer vocational customers a pre-wire option to easily install Telogis’ telematics platform, including Telogis Fleet, a GPS-based fleet management system.

The option is available in Cummins-equipped Freightliner Business Class M2, 108SD, and 114SD vocational trucks. The pre-wire option allows for the quick upfit of a Telogis system.

“As a truck manufacturer, it’s absolutely critical that we do everything we can to help our customers reduce operating costs by reducing idle times, reducing emissions and streamlining their operations through advanced fleet management and routing,” said David Hames, general manager, marketing and strategy, Daimler Trucks North America. “Offering a telematics pre-wire option to our customers will make it easier for them to achieve these efficiencies, including the integration of planning and operational data, field variables and location-based intelligence to make informed business decisions in real time.”

In addition to Telogis Fleet, Telogis also offers Telogis Route, a multi-vehicle route planning, optimization and scheduling system.

“We’re excited to move forward in this relationship with Freightliner,” says Kevin Moore, senior director—OEM automotive business, Telogis. “This new product offering makes it easier than ever for business owners and fleet managers to take the leap forward and implement a telematics solution that will help reduce operating costs, improve the productivity and allocation of field resources, and drive business decisions based on real data — whether in real time, weekly, monthly or annually. It promises to be beneficial for all parties involved.”
