How will a smart truck benefit your operations?

In logistics, the challenge is to create a smooth workflow within your operations with minimum downtime. If you are, for example, dealing with damage to pallet loads, forklifts and infrastructure, you’re generating cost and losing productivity. But how exactly can you avoid this and be in control of your operations? Smart trucks can be the solution to raise efficiency and manage costs.

Standard smart trucks: an industry first

Do you know exactly how much time your trucks are actually driving around the warehouse? Or how much downtime some of the trucks in your operations are experiencing? Could there be a solution to optimise service intervals and lower overall cost? There is now an easy way to monitor and be in control of your operations, allowing you to improve efficiency, productivity and safety.

Warehouse trucks from Toyota Material Handling that are ordered after 1 October 2018 are delivered with integrated telematics. At Toyota we are taking the lead with standard smart trucks in this industry because we want to offer our you the trucks and tools for a lean logistics operation. Installing telematics hardware as standard allows easy access to all data from the moment the truck is produced. This way you can easily access and analyse the data from your smart trucks, to understand and improve your operations.
