Business Benefits

The beUpToDate mobile app was introduced to give Logistics companies more flexibility in their workflows. This enables them to meet tight deadlines more easily and keep stocks low. The mobile app increases the efficiency and effectiveness of fleet management by allowing dispatchers to receive information and make decisions on the go.

    • Dispatchers can always keep an eye on the entire vehicle fleet and each individual vehicle
    • Fleet managers stay informed around the clock via notifications and real-time positioning
    • Logistics providers are sure that their cargo arrives intact thanks to comprehensive metrics, such as temperature in refrigerated trailers, the condition of the brakes, the fuel level and more

Business Need

The company’s TrailerConnect® portal already offers telematics as a desktop application. Along with the evolving needs and expectations of Schmitz Cargobull’s customers, real-time decisions are becoming increasingly important, while fleet managers need more control, flexibility and better access to information.

After a two-week start-up phase, where requirements and UX design were defined in workshops, iOS and Android teams developed a native iOS and Android app, respectively, over a period of just eight weeks. This has since been continuously improved and updated during the project period. To avoid dependencies, developers only used native technologies
