More profitability through more insight
The world is becoming ever smaller. Connectivity allows us to work more quickly, easily and effectively. The possibilities are endless. DAF Trucks believes that smart connectivity is also the key to even more efficient logistics solutions. That is why we developed DAF Connect.
Introducing the DAF Connect App
The DAF Connect App is the latest addition to DAF’s fleet management platform. This brand new app coaches drivers on efficient fuel consumption via their mobile phones, while the online portal offers fleet managers and planners real-time insights into the long-term performance of their drivers, vehicles and logistical processes. Everything can be viewed on a dashboard, providing the driver with instant tips for more efficient driving. Since the app is linked to the driver’s Eco Score Card, they have permanent access to their own performance records. The app also facilitates two-way communication between drivers, planners and fleet owners.

DAF Connect gives you real-time insight into how your driver is performing and the status and performance of your vehicle, whatever time it is and wherever you are in the world. All you need is a PC or laptop.
DAF Connect maps the current location of your vehicles, giving you insight into performances and the routes that are being covered. You can see all the departure and arrival times at a glance, helping you to optimise the use of your vehicles and, in turn, your productivity.
Based on the information provided by DAF Connect, maintenance can be tailored even more precisely to your specific fleet and business model. Your DAF dealer supports you proactively by scheduling and carrying out maintenance and repairs at a convenient time.
DAF Connect in detail
DAF Connect is a platform designed to increase vehicle availability, reduce operational costs, improve logistical efficiency and maximise flexibility for you.
The fleet management system collects real-time information and presents it online on a clear and user-friendly dashboard that you can customise by selecting the modules that are important to you.
The Driver Report and Vehicle Report modules give you a continuous overview of how the driver is driving and of your truck's fuel consumption. You can fully configure these reports to suit your needs.
Eco Score Card
Evaluating the performance of individual drivers is now even easier; the ECO Score Card lets you compare driving behaviour in detail and monitor targets.
You are sent real-time reports in the event of a predetermined event occurring in relation to the driver or vehicle; for example, deviations in terms of speed, route, location and fuel consumption.
Fuel Level Deviation
The goal is to maintain control of your fuel consumption and maximise your return per kilometre. If the level in an individual truck's fuel tank deviates from your forecast, either positively or negatively, then DAF Connect notifies you of this.
To make sure that your fleet is always in the best possible condition, you receive immediate updates about potential deviations.
Remote Tacho Download
Remote Tacho Download is added as an app to the DAF Connect dashboard. The application offers quick and comprehensive access to the full range of tacho information available from connected vehicles and their drivers. Driving times and rest periods are shown in real time.
Through the DAF Connect Webshop you can order monthly or annual subscriptions to DAF Data Packs. This enables you to enrich your own logistics process data with DAF Connect data such as vehicle availability, fuel consumption and driving performance data, as well as integrating input from third-party systems.

Manage your subscriptions with just a mouse click
A new feature within the DAF Connect Portal is a webshop which helps you to manage your DAF Connect subscriptions with just a mouse click.

Also, purchasing DAF Connect 3rd party applications can be quickly arranged through the Portal.
Your truck data in your own solution?
The open platform from DAF Connect has been designed to truly live up to its name. Your own fleet supplies the relevant data via a central database, so you can seamlessly integrate DAF Connect into your existing fleet management solutions.
The data is available in the rFMS standard; this is an ACEA industry standard that makes it straightforward to share data with existing applications in a fixed format. As a result, the open platform is also suitable for a mixed fleet — good news if you have invested in fleet management systems but still want to use the manufacturer’s data. This delivers a unique level of flexibility and is what we mean by DAF Transport Efficiency: we pull out all the stops to help you achieve the highest return per kilometre.
