“Go green – go Hödlmayr“: Additional route optimization due to new telematics system

Already three decades ago Hödlmayr International drew attention to itself through the use of a track & trace system based on GPS – with this it was considered as a pioneer within the sector. Route optimization has been the main objective until now. At the moment the Austrian company is investing in one of the most advanced telematics system and once again underlines the company philosophy: we can do always a little bit better.

The biggest advantage of the technical innovation is without a doubt real time reporting immediately providing and processing telematics data. “This means that the driver gets information about his economic driving behaviour while still driving and if required can make the necessary changes. In addition detours and empty kilometres can be reduced to a minimum. That is a reduction of CO2– a target which is clearly stated in our company philosophy ‘Go green – go Hödlmayr’ ”, emphasizes CEO Johannes Hödlmayr.

Within the next weeks the entire Hödlmayr fleet – that is all 610 trucks – will be equipped with the new system.
