The dominant role of commercial vehicles


It is hard to imagine what would happen if there were no commercial vehicles on the roads of the world. Trains and ships are good alternatives over long distances (mainly in China, USA and Canada), but less effective for short-haul and delivery transports, local distribution and transports requiring shorter travelling times. In short, a lack of commercial vehicles means scarce, non-existent freight transport. Its strength is, still, its great flexibility: trucks and drivers can move directly from the sender to the loading ramps of retail stores and to the doors of delivery recipients. Such an advantage makes commercial vehicles indispensable for local transport. Our current situation and various future scenarios pose a whole series of challenges in terms of efficiency and environmental sustainability, but especially in terms of road safety. However, the trend is still positive: thanks to the enormous progress in areas such as infotelematics and driver assistance systems, the number of car crash victims has decreased significantly throughout the EU in recent years. Furthermore, the connectivity will determine the future of the sector: the networking between means of transport and infrastructures will also be decisive for maximizing the efficiency of the transport field. If telematics has already become a fundamental tool in terms of competitiveness because of its advantages in terms of management, cost optimization, improvement of company performance, and greater security, the Webconsole Viasat Fleet, in connection to its exclusive on-board unit, represents the better response to optimization needs and greater operational efficiency of trucking companies. New, fast, intuitive, with renewed graphics design; fleet managers can instantly monitor the position and conditions of vehicles and employees, checking the number of run kilometres, unauthorized deviations, loading/unloading time, activities management and much more. Webconsole Viasat Fleet ensures smart activities and performance management and provides monthly or periodic analytical graphic reports for a better understanding of processed information and related trends (travelling, vehicle activity, maximum drive hours rules, tachograph rules on breaks, driving style, excise duties reimbursement).The dominant role of commercial vehicles
