Make your fleet management intelligent
Digitisation is changing the world of intralogistics. Modern logistics devices continuously collect data, which is analysed and can then be used to optimise complex warehouse and transport processes. Networking and advanced sensors even enable the forklift trucks to act autonomously. This results in the fleet and fleet management becoming intelligent, and networking and real-time data access becoming increasingly important.
The Linde connect fleet management system provides precisely the information that you need for efficient fleet management. Whether it is in production or the warehouse, connect networks your forklift trucks and continuously informs you of the current status of the entire fleet. connect thus makes fleet management more cost-effective and increases the availability of each individual forklift truck. You can choose between the local connect:desk fleet management software or the connect:cloud cloud-based version as required.

Fleet management – FAQ
What is fleet management?
Fleet management allows a company’s forklift truck fleet to be controlled centrally. This mainly involves optimising the availability of the individual forklift trucks and coordinating the distances that are travelled. Modern forklift trucks continuously collect data for this purpose, which provides information about your status and current capacity utilisation. Fleet management helps to make optimum use of resources and detect problems such as capacity bottlenecks at an early stage.
For whom are fleet management systems relevant?
Fleet managers have the task of planning forklift truck deployment in advance, optimising processes and reducing the operating costs of the forklift truck fleet. The requirements for fleet management differ from company to company, as they are very much dependent on the size of the fleet. Modern fleet management software ensures that you can get the most out of any fleet size. It benefits the experienced fleet manager just as much as the casual user who only requires individual functions.
