ANTOINE Group innovates thanks to telematics

Brest, France, April 17th, 2014: The ANTOINE Group specialized in cold transport, key member of the UNTF (the French Cold Transport Federation), invests for the first time in an innovative solution for the management of its vehicles.

The chosen solution, delivered by Vehco, equips the entire fleet - about 400 heavy trucks - with an on-board computer and a high resolution touch screen for drivers. Document scanners will be installed in the vehicles in order to digitalize letters of transport and to allow faster invoicing. For a better temperature traceability, 465 probes have been installed in each trailer and record the temperature. The temperature data are displayed in real time in the vehicles and are downloaded at wharf thanks to 9 RFID receivers.

For the ANTOINE Group, this turning point in the management of the vehicles, the drivers and the orders of transport is the result of a long preparatory work. According to Philippe Antoine, President and Chief Executive Officer of the ANTOINE Group and Co-President of the UNTF, “we sought a total and powerful solution in terms of temperature monitoring, social management and orders of transport. After a successful pilot, we chose Vehco for its capacity to offer solutions tailored to our business including an integration with the TMS solution from Systrans (in deployment)”.

Serge Gautheron, Sales Director of Vehco France comments “we are proud to be trusted by the ANTOINE Group. This rewards our investments on the transport sector where we have been innovating in partnership with our customers for many years. The complementary developments required by the ANTOINE Group will enable us to go even further, and to offer to cold transport carriers the most complete and innovating solution of the market”.

Stephane Croguennec, President of the company SYSTRANS, a TMS software publisher, adds: “we are extremely satisfied to work with Vehco with which we have a particular relationship thanks to our proximity in terms of business and location - since we both develop and support our products in France.”

The finalization of the contract with the ANTOINE Group strengthens Vehco’s good position in the cold business due to a long series of contracts won among UNTF members (Staff, Médina…).
