TransFollow and Speed Telematics partner up to offer full-cycle digital fleet management solutions
The partnership will provide a digitalized document-handling experience as well as a more efficient operational process with TransFollow eCMR.
TransFollow, the leading e-CMR provider (what is eCMR?) and expert in the supply chain digitalization for the logistics and road transport sector, and Speed Telematics, the Spanish-based company specializing in the development of telematics solutions, have formed a partnership. The new partnership will allow more international companies, particularly Spanish logistics and transport companies to benefit from TransFollow’s data-sharing platform and the e-CMR solution when allocating their fleets hitting the road.
At SIL 2022 event in Barcelona, Hans Lip, Viaservice | TransFollow COO and Joan Banchs, CEO & Founder at Speed Telematics, signed the partnership agreement to boost the digitalization of international transport.
A joint approach
The cooperation bundles complementary capabilities in a joint approach, combining the advantages of both solutions: collecting telematics data independent of the source, easily integrating partners into own processes, exchanging profound data, seamlessly tracking transports and flows of fleets across the entire supply chain, as well as optimizing and optimizing the internal administrations. Compared to other solutions, the approach clearly stands out due to the secure, controlled and barrier-free data exchange between the systems of the market participants.
The partnership with TransFollow enables logistics and transport companies to simplify and digitalize their transport operations and administration by using the TransFollow eCMR – the digital format of the CMR, and they are able to customize their own workflow of transport operations to meet their specific requirements in different scenarios via the TransFollow Portal - the transport management platform where consignors, consignees and carriers can create, plan, monitor their transports, and exchange data. Speed Telematics’ terminal devices will include the TransFollow Drive App – one App to exchange on all transport operations, ensuring a better mobility experience for your fleet drivers.
Spain: Accelerating supply chains’ digitalization at a national level
Since 2020, Spain has started speeding up the digital transformation of the Spanish supply chains and promoting the use of electronic transport documentation at the national level as a critical tool to improve costs, efficiency, and security of transport and logistics (read more about Entire Spanish Supply Chain Supports the Implementation of the eCMR). The TransFollow eCMR is also recognized as the Spanish state level for the intra-community VAT exemption process. Recently, The Next Generation European funds have been established by the Spanish authority, which aims to support more logistics companies digitizing their business processes. These are funds of up to €12,000 per company, destined to recover the economic damage caused by the pandemic. Speed Telematics is offering the possibility of accessing the funds Digital Kits program. Since the TransFollow eCMR is included in the Digital Kits, by accepting the Digital Kits, you are able to experience the TransFollow products including eCMR free of charge.
