To support this TIP has integrated the Novacom Europe Vwise telematics solutions into its contract maintenance services – FleetCare – covering maintenance and tires, as well as its trailer rental service.

The recent award that Novacom Europe has received clearly supports our choice."

Detailed information about trailer performance is transmitted digitally to the customer, facilitating decision-making to optimize performance via most effective use of TIP’s services.

"Quote Hans Cleijsen …on the importance of tire pressure monitoring for DB Schenker …"
Hans Cleijsen, Transport Manager Schenker in Tilburg, says, "Logistics service provider DB Schenker Logistics stands for continuous innovation and improvement. When the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment in autumn 2011 organized a contest to stimulate driving with the correct tire pressure, we were immediately enthusiastic. As a pilot, four trucks and trailers of DB Schenker were equipped with the Novacom Europe telematics solution, which in addition to tire pressure, also yields other very useful data. Not only whilst driving it is possible to monitor tire pressure, but also when stopped.
Driving with the correct tire pressure has a positive effect on the environment and has significantly reduced the number of breakdowns in our fleet, resulting in reduced road congestion and CO2 emissions. This fits perfectly with DB Schenker’s ‘green logistics’ policy, to avoid, reduce and offset environmental taxes."
