The Swiss forwarding company G. Leclerc Transport AG handles a large quantity of refrigerated transports for its food and pharmaceutical customers on a daily basis and delivers the ordered goods to their destination quickly, safely, in a resource-saving manner and fully documented. Without the telematics from idem telematics, this would hardly be possible.
Truck and trailer are equipped with idem telematics technology: The telematics boxes from idem telematics are installed in the entire fleet of the company with its approximately 200 tractor units and 160 semi-trailers. “This means that everything is located in one portal, we can handle the order processing and the monitoring of the vehicles and temperatures via one system and only need one interface,” explains Edwin Kohli, Head of Sales and Projects and member of the company’s management. “This system is easy to use for everyone involved, and the quality is just right”.

Enormous relief for the driver
Ten percent savings in consumption
Environmental protection is a strong focus for the company: “We are strongly committed to sustainable production, make considerable annual investments in our modern vehicle fleet and make use of technical optimisations. In addition to driver training, for example, the trucks are adjusted to optimise consumption and are equipped with eco tyres, and detergents are used consciously and economically. For long distances, the company uses its own swap-bodies whenever possible to switch to rail.
The vehicle with the vaccine on board now arrives at the clinic on time. A member of staff is already standing by at the ramp, acknowledging receipt and pushing the goods directly into the building’s cold storage rooms. From there, the medical team can access the medicines – and rely completely on the reliability of the freight forwarder Leclerc.
