MAN Truck & Bus Middle East support manager Stefan Schnitzler has presented to an audience of logistics professionals on how vehicle intelligence and telematics can be used for improved safety and profitability.
The Microlise-sponsored event in Dubai, hosted by the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport (CILT), focused on optimisation, safety and conformance and also featured speakers from AECOM and the UK branch of the CILT.
Late last year, at The Big 5 show, MAN Truck & Bus Middle East & Africa launched a next generation telematics solution, based on the Microlise platform, for customers in the Middle East and Africa called MAN Ecostyle.
EcoStyle has been designed to help transport operators improve driving standards, reduce vehicle wear and tear, enhance safety levels and improve vehicle health, as well as reduce overall operating costs, emissions and fuel usage.
The event, which was attended by companies from across sector in the Middle East, also covered The Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS) and how its principles could apply in the region, and the future of freight in the Middle East.
