Trishield Logistics is engaged in coal transportation business in the state of Odisha. TATA heavy trucks form the backbone of the fleet. In 2008, this truck was presented as a "global vehicle" at an international road show. At that time, it was equipped only with GPS-tracker from telematic equipment. Today, in order to effectively manage a company, management needs to know complete information about the movement, the operations performed and the technical condition of the machine, as well as to receive analytics on the performance of the entire fleet.

Mohammed Salahuddin Ahmed, head of the Indian branch of MONTRANS Group: "We discussed the existing mechanisms of truck transport operation at the mines and realized that the whole management system is based solely on manual labor. As for refueling, fuel consumption, motor-hours, everything is recorded with a pen on paper. We offered our products as a realization of a complex solution for online vehicle monitoring".
According to the pilot project, Russian specialists equipped five vehicles with fuel level sensors and terminals for data processing and transmission in LTE standard. A tilt sensor was installed on a loader to monitor the operation of the lifting mechanism. The installation of telematics in the fleet was the highlight of the year for employees. Dozens of drivers and mechanics followed the actions of the Russian engineers.
To date, the digitalization of vehicle fleets in India is about 10 years behind the level of Russian companies. Already in the first days of operation of our telematic systems, top managers of the Indian company felt global advantages in new ways of fleet management. Based on the results of the pilot project, a decision will be made on the digitalization of the entire fleet.
