Krone boosts telematics services

Werlte, Germany: Trailer maker Krone and Shippeo, which makes automated tracking systems, have partnered to provide real-time estimated time of arrival (ETA) for Krone’s trailer telematic systems.

Customers will be able to receive the ETA for deliveries, powered by Shippeo’s proprietary machine learning algorithm.

“There’s a growing demand for trailers with built-in ETA prediction capabilities to manage transportation more effectively” says Stefan Binnewies chief operating officer, Krone.

“Krone trailers are state of the art and now we’re adding more world-class connected services to our portfolio. Our trailers will be prepared for the digital requirements of the shipper. We want to offer the leading solutions in the market and Shippeo’s ETA is the most accurate and reliable available.”

Shippeo plans to integrate Krone Telematics temperature monitoring data on its real-time visibility platform, allowing all active users to monitor delivery status and shipment integrity in real-time and all from one portal. “Today many logistics companies still rely on a paper-based system where drivers have to verify that cold chain shipments have met stringent regulation but with real-time temperature monitoring, customer defined clients are notified as soon as temperature starts to change. This allows potential breaches of maximum temperatures to be avoided and enables electronic delivery documentation.” says Lucien Besse, chief operating office Shippeo.
