“More and more options with DAF Connect”
The Dutch firm Vonk & Co is one of DAF Connect’s launching customers. “For us it is a crucial instrument for improving the efficiency of our company”, says fleet manager John van Hattem. “It is extremely user-friendly and there are more and more options being added.”
Vonk & Co is an international transport company with its head office in the Dutch town of Tiel. The firm is specialised in the transport of domestic appliances. The goods are first transported from Germany, Austria and Italy to the company’s central depot, from where they are distributed to retailers and consumers. “DAF Connect is fitted in our XFs and LFs”, explains Van Hattem.
“The more kilometres we clock up, the more data we receive. That makes it easier for us to compare and to analyse. Why is one truck using more fuel than another? Is it because of different routes or drivers, or because of different idling times? DAF Connect gives us the answers to these questions and we have already been able to cut back on costs as a result.”
