Knorr-Bremse to launch CV telematics solution under Microlise deal

The newly announced agreement between the two firms will lead to the launch of a range of fleet solutions under the TruckServices ProFleet Connect banner. These will initially be aimed at truck fleets but will later target lighter commercial vehicles too, and will enable operators to enhance service levels, make operational cost savings, minimise carbon emissions and reduce vehicle wear and tear.  

Dr Peter Laier, member of the executive board of Knorr-Bremse AG responsible for the Commercial Vehicle Systems division, said: “With TruckServices ProFleet Connect, we are offering more than just a link between the vehicle and the fleet management system. We are delivering smart services which, based on the collected data, offer added value for fleet operators and drivers alike. And our telematics solution is not only modular, it’s also compatible with any make of vehicle. In Microlise we have found a partner who already has working relationships with a whole series of vehicle manufacturers and together with whom we are going to launch our range of attractive products and services for the transport management sector in Europe.” 

Nadeem Raza, chief executive officer, Microlise, added: “We welcome this new cooperation which offers us a unique opportunity to partner with one of the industry’s best known brands and extend our channel partner programme to increase our footprint in Europe. We look forward to our ongoing partnership and continued cooperation.”
