Daimler Fleet Management also has tailor-made fleet management solutions for truck operators so that they too can get the best out of their fleet.
CharterWay is a flexible mobility solution that promises to get the most out of your fleet. The CharterWay service offering starts with a basic service only contract (CharterWay Service BestBasic) and ends with a lease and maintenance offering (CharterWay Maintenance Leasing Complete). The top of the range product includes full leasing, maintenance and repair on your Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles. As an operator you will benefit from the enhanced cash flow in your business due to the fact that no deposit is required up-front and that there will be no unforeseen costs in terms of the daily maintenance of your vehicles. Flexible contract terms, ranging from 24 to 60 months, are offered.
With CharterWay your biggest concern is driving your truck while we worry about the maintenance and servicing of your truck for you. CharterWay also includes other comprehensive services which you can select from.
An all-in-one package: to help high-performance trucks optimise their efficiency, Daimler FleetBoard offers market-leading standard equipment and telematics-supported Internet services at an international flat-rate charge. The company brings together many years of experience from the truck sector with IT and communications know-how under one roof. Since its implementation in 2000, FleetBoard has revolutionised approaches to managing commercial vehicle fleets. With information on vehicles, trips and tachographs instantly available for analysis or further processing, material planning and vehicle fleet management profit from product portfolios. All data can be easily integrated in existing haulage programs. Hardware is developed in line with automotive standards and complies with Mercedes-Benz guidelines for control units. Services are carried out, monitored and developed on a permanent basis at our own data centre by a team of experts.
Efficient communication with the driver: order data is sent to the vehicle in real time and trips managed professionally. The co-ordinator has a complete overview of vehicles on a digital road map. This generates a significant increase in service quality for customers and the vehicle, and trip/order statuses are available at all times.
Potential analyses addressing economic driving, wear data and operating fluid levels help to reduce consumption figures and wear rates for trucks. This is the basis for driver training measures. Information on upcoming maintenance seminars are sent to workshop and fleet managers in order to minimise downtime
All legal requirements regarding driving and rest times are met automatically. Driver card and mass storage files are recorded remotely and without a company card in the vehicle, which generates considerable documentation savings. The obligatory journey to headquarters is no longer necessary and the vehicle co-ordinator can plan to optimum effect on the basis of remaining driving times.
