Logistics transport company, Linfox, is rolling out the latest MTData in-cab technology into its Australian truck fleet.
Known as Fox Trax, the technology has been incorporated into 75 per cent of its commercial vehicles to reportedly help its customers with greater visibility of stock movements while simplifying critical safety and compliance processes.
Developed by Linfox in collaboration with Industrie & Co, MTData, Amazon Web Services and Google, the Smart Fox system uses live GPS location information and Google traffic data to predict truck arrival times and provide early notice of possible delays across the network.
According to Nik West, Linfox Manager In-Field Technology and Tools, the technology records the accuracy of estimated arrival times and collects data on route changes after a truck has departed to facilitate continued learning and improvement of the system.
“Through these engagements, we can tackle challenges and develop solutions that help us better deliver for customers,” he said.
“By exploring a challenge and bringing together insights and available technologies we can create new systems that enhance the customer’s experience,” said West.
“Collecting more data through these systems can help us improve algorithms and enhance the visibility of parts of the network which are key to innovation.”
“This will help accelerate machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities across a new range of Linfox applications.”
