What is telematics?

Telematics describes the combination of at least two different information systems, for example IT and telecommunications. The information from the systems is then linked together. Special programs and systems are used for linking in order to record and process the data.

In logistics, telematics is primarily used to record traffic and transportation data. This allows some important information to be displayed quickly and up to date. These include, for example:

  • Location of vehicles
  • Estimated time of arrival at the recipient
  • GPS tracking of loading units or vehicles

What is needed for telematics in logistics?

In order to use telematics in logistics, a telematics unit is required. The unit can be installed in containers or on vehicles, for example. A program or an online portal can then be used to display the current location of the unit to within a few meters. This means that information about the status of a transport can be provided in a matter of seconds.
