Boels to use ZTR telematics

11 December 2019

Boels Rental has partnered with US-based telematics provider ZTR Control Systems to roll out a telematics programme across a portion of its fleet with the intention that Boels will be able to make better informed business decisions based on the data collected. The number and type of machines included in the programme have not been disclosed.

ZTR will act as the factory install partner for eight of Boels’ OEM suppliers: Kubota, Niftylift, Kärcher, Tobroco Giant, Trime, Keyter-Intarcon, Ruthmann and BBA Pump.

Machines in the fleet that are equipped with telematics will be marked with special branding by Boels.

Access to all the necessary Internet of Things (IoT) data from the machines is made possible by the business API (application programming interface) solutions used by ZTR’s ONE i3 platform.

Guy Cremer, Boels’ Director of Fleet Operations, said, “ZTR has provided a turnkey solution for us. The blend of industry-leading IoT hardware combined with the programme support and fully-managed software services has enabled a future-proofed solution with full support for mixed fleet aggregation and the vision for the sharing economy.”

Director of Commercial Development and Program Management at ZTR, Paul Wilson, said, “Boels shares ZTR’s vision to leverage IoT across the OEM, rental and customer value chain.

“As a partner, we look forward to their journey and to supporting them in their programme expansion to meet their growing needs and goals in the European Union.”
