TIP and Schmitz Cargobull set digital milestone for frictionless digital data provision

AMSTERDAM, 06 September 2022 – TIP Trailer Services, a portfolio company of I Squared Capital and one of the leading truck and trailer leasing, rental, maintenance and repair, as well as other value-added services provider across Europe and Canada, is partnering with Schmitz Cargobull to integrate their standardized telematic interfaces for the respective systems. 

It is now possible for transport companies using telematics systems from Schmitz Cargobull and TIP Insight, TIP's telematic solution, to access the data provided for all their vehicles via their individual access points, regardless of the telematics hardware installed or the telematics portal used.

This straightforward and convenient solution is made possible thanks to the cooperation between the two providers. "For transport companies, the topics of data standardization, inter-operability and consolidation, and thus open interfaces, are key expectations to make the digital real", explain Theo de Vries, Commercial Vice President M&R and TIP Insight, and Marnix Lannoije, Managing Director of Schmitz Cargobull Telematics, in a joint statement.

Every customer can retrieve all the data they require in their preferred telematics portal

"The continuous analysis of real-time trailer data enables connected operations, greater sustainability and increased competitiveness. Frictionless data provision requires both data standardization and system inter-operability as elementary building blocks” continue the two gentlemen. “Our customers all speak with one voice on that matter: they want to retrieve all vehicle data as quickly, easily and transparently as possible in order to manage their fleets and operations even more efficiently. This we now assure with the compatibility of TIP Insight and Cargobull Telematics.”

This partnership enables an important milestone to gain insights into the activity and health of assets for a safer, more transparent and efficient transportation eco-system for many transport companies.
