Worldline teams up with MICHELIN® Solutions to launch EFFITRAILERTM, a new connected solution for managing truck trailers
Paris, December 8, 2015
EFFITRAILERTM, launched by Michelin Solutions during the SOLUTRANS trade fair, relies on the truck data collection and processing telematics platform from Worldline, [Euronext: WLN], European market leader in payment and transactional services.
Backed by partners, MICHELIN® Solutions has developed a series of offers that meet the current challenges facing European truck fleets. MICHELIN® Solutions’ existing offers include EFFIFUELTM, a global package for reducing fuel consumption, and EFFITIRESTM, a tire subcontracting package including, if clients so require, a commitment to cut fuel consumption. Following on from its existing offers, MICHELIN® Solutions, together with Worldline, is now launching EFFITRAILERTM.
Boosted by the standard modules of Worldline’s Connected Vehicles solution, EFFITRAILERTM provides Michelin Solutions clients with a value-enhancing services package that optimizes management of their trailer fleet. EFFITRAILERTM receives real-time data from trucks (e.g. GPS location, tire pressure, stationary trucks etc.) that is uploaded to the reporting system on the fleet’s operations and performance and issues alerts ensuring real-time control.
Philippe Miret, Michelin® Solutions CEO, said: “EFFITRAILERTM improves haulage firms’ operating margins while strengthening the safety of their loads and enhancing delivery reliability. Thanks to the Worldline platform’s modularity and operational capacity, we rely on Worldline to develop innovative offers and to roll them out throughout Europe”.
Olivier Stuckens, Worldline managing director Mobility & e-Transactional Services, explained: “The introduction of WL Connected Vehicles solution on Michelin® Solutions clients’ trailer fleets shows how effectively we can fulfill the data collection and analysis needs of our customers regardless of the connected device. We strive to market ourselves as a trusted partner capable of supporting customers end to end”.
