THE Mercedes-Benz telematics system, Fleetboard, is now part of the package for the Actros and selected Arocs distribution models.

And Mercedes-Benz Trucks Southern Africa said the system, offered on the Actros range since 2009, is now not only available as a serial standard on the selected Mercedes-Benz Trucks models, but also for other vehicle makes.

“Available in South Africa for many years, the Fleetboard system has established itself as a leading telematics solution for Mercedes-Benz Truck customers,” the company said in a statement, adding that it “boasts multiple benefits such as performance analysis and reports for vehicles and drivers, mapping and trip records including accurate fuel consumption, service and maintenance management as well as expert training and analysis”.

It said the “strategic decision” to make Fleetboard more widely available would be “beneficial to customers within the long-haul and distribution segment… This is a significant step for the brand that is set to substantially benefit fleet owners and their respective drivers, as they efficiently run their fleet across Southern Africa”.
