WABCO Signs its Largest Ever Fleet Management Contract

| March 6, 2018


WABCO Holdings Inc., a leading global supplier of technologies that are engineered to improve the safety, efficiency and connectivity of commercial vehicles, announced its largest ever Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) contract with Girteka Logistics, Europe’s leading asset-based transport company.

Under the agreement, 2,700 trucks across Girteka Logistics’ European fleet will be equipped with WABCO’s advanced FMS.

Headquartered in Vilnius, Lithuania, Girteka Logistics has a fleet of more than 4,000 trucks and 4,300 trailers. It delivers over 320,000 Full Truck Loads (FTL) annually for some of the world’s largest retail brands.

This multi-year agreement will see Girteka Logistics trucks upgraded with WABCO-owned Transics’ comprehensive FMS portfolio, including advanced TX-SKY™ on-board computers and TX-FLEX™ mobile app connectivity as well as TX-CONNECT™ back-office IT and software integration via the TX-TANGO™ web service platform. This powerful combination of advanced FMS solutions provides significant benefits for Girteka Logistics, including improvements to its overall fleet efficiency and an enhanced customer service capability.

Providing real-time communication between Girteka Logistics’ dispatchers and drivers, TX-SKY onboard computers constantly monitor and collect high quality truck data. This enables fleet managers to plan advanced route management as well as receive real-time alerts and alarms on vehicle speeds, GeoFences, driving times and activity duration. These functions, including efficient remote tachograph downloading, are all critical to support compliance with European driving and resting time regulations. TX-SKY also delivers truck performance and driving style analysis to aid more economical and ecological driving. This is complemented by TX-FLEX mobile app connectivity which further enhances driver efficiency with out-of-cabin information support.

Transics’ FMS will enable Girteka Logistics to closely monitor and communicate with more vehicles per dispatcher than previously possible. In addition to a clearer picture of its fleet performance, new functionalities including order follow-up guidance and out-of-cab information support will give Girteka Logistics increased visibility of its customer supply chain.

According to Edvardas Liachovicius, Girteka Logistics Chief Executive Officer, “To be competitive in this dynamic market we are continuously seeking to improve operational efficiency and, as our fleet grows, this can only be achieved with the most advanced solutions on the market.”
