WABCO Introduces New Fleet Solutions Business to Support Transport Ecosystems

| July 8, 2019

Digital portfolio will include extension of its Internet of Things and cloud-based technologies for commercial vehicle fleets

WABCO Holdings global supplier of braking control systems and other advanced technologies that improve the safety, efficiency and connectivity of commercial vehicles, announced that it has established a new Fleet Solutions organization which will develop solutions designed to further connect today’s complex transportation ecosystem. The new business builds on WABCO’s former Aftermarket and its Digital Customer Services units, delivering an organization that focuses on improving fleet and road transport safety, environmental efficiencies and enables leaner operations.

WABCO’s Fleet Solutions powerfully combines both advanced digital solutions and best-in-class services under one roof. Beyond spare parts and services offering, the expansion of its digital portfolio will be high on the agenda, including a rapid extension of its Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud-based technologies for commercial vehicle fleets and transporters globally. WABCO Fleet Solutions is already developing and delivering several of these innovations today, including solutions for fuel efficiency, downtime reduction, regulatory compliance, workforce management and load optimization, thanks to its advanced Fleet Management Solutions (FMS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and cloud-based technologies.

WABCO Fleet Solutions will seek to further extend its offering in digital services to better connect the many ecosystem players in transport, including parts distributors, maintenance workshops, goods owners, rental companies, payment service providers and vehicle component providers, to mention but a few. The company’s ever expanding digital offering will allow transport operators to continuously improve their connectivity across the ecosystem enabling these to operate in an increasingly leaner, greener and safer manner.

“Modern-day transporters face a multitude of challenges in a world that is fast changing, driven by more regulation, higher customer expectations and fast paced technological change,” explained Philippe Colpron, WABCO Vice President and Global Fleet Solutions Leader. “And it is here that we want to play a key role; with a significant expansion of our digital IoT enabled and cloud based capabilities we aim to deliver new levels of safety and efficiency for transport operators globally. What makes us unique is that we are blending this advanced digital technology with the many best-in-class services we already offer our customers today to ensure all parts of the ecosystem are connected and effective. Our mission in the extensive and complex transport process is to help the commercial road transport industry achieve zero accidents, maximum environmental efficiency and the delivery of radically leaner operations across their business.”

Included in the Fleet Solutions portfolio will be WABCO’s extensive and leading Fleet Management System suite, the recently launched TX-FUELCOMPASS™, TX-TRAILERPULSE™ and TX-TRAILERFIT™, Remote Diagnostics, a growing portfolio of advanced retrofit solutions, WABCO Academy and an extensive selection of replacement parts including OE original, Remanufactured Parts, a range of reliable budget parts called ProVia and a wide offering of repair kits distributed across more than 115 countries by over 4,600 distribution points and supported by a network of 3,100 official WABCO Service Partners.

In support of driving improved market proximity and in a push to reflect the globally diverse sector it services, WABCO Fleet Solutions’ 900-strong team operates from over 45 markets – represented by over 30 nationalities worldwide – enabling it to be as close to its customer base as possible.

The introduction of WABCO Fleet Solutions anticipates a rapidly changing transport industry where global mega-trends such as population growth, the Internet of Things, higher customer expectations and a push towards sustaining a greener world, combined with increasingly demanding customer requirements for flexibility, speed and safety are putting further pressure on supply chains and fleet profitability. As the commercial vehicle industry moves decisively towards increasingly autonomous, connected and electric vehicles to meet these challenges, WABCO’s Fleet Solutions organization will drive the technological advancement that will continue to enable smarter operations across the commercial road transport ecosystem.
