WABCO Holdings has established a new Fleet Solutions organization which will develop solutions designed to further connect the complex transportation ecosystem. The new business builds on WABCO’s former Aftermarket and its Digital Customer Services units. WABCO’s Fleet Solutions combines both advanced digital solutions and best-in-class services under one roof. Beyond spare parts and services offering, the expansion of its digital portfolio will be high on the agenda, including a rapid extension of its Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud-based technologies for commercial vehicle fleets and transporters globally.
WABCO Fleet Solutions will seek to further extend its offering in digital services to better connect the many ecosystem players in transport, including parts distributors, maintenance workshops, goods owners, rental companies, payment service providers and vehicle component providers, to mention but a few.
“Modern-day transporters face a multitude of challenges in a world that is fast changing, driven by more regulation, higher customer expectations and fast paced technological change,” explained Philippe Colpron, WABCO Vice President and Global Fleet Solutions Leader. “And it is here that we want to play a key role; with a significant expansion of our digital IoT enabled and cloud based capabilities we aim to deliver new levels of safety and efficiency for transport operators globally. What makes us unique is that we are blending this advanced digital technology with the many best-in-class services we already offer our customers today to ensure all parts of the ecosystem are connected and effective.”
Included in the Fleet Solutions portfolio will be WABCO’s extensive and leading Fleet Management System suite, the recently launched TX-FUELCOMPASS, TX-TRAILERPULSE and TX-TRAILERFIT, Remote Diagnostics, a growing portfolio of advanced retrofit solutions, WABCO Academy and an extensive selection of replacement parts including OE original, Remanufactured Parts, a range of reliable budget parts called ProVia and a wide offering of repair kits distributed across more than 115 countries by over 4,600 distribution points and supported by a network of 3,100 official WABCO Service Partners.
