“At Solutrans, we will highlight how ZF's innovative and continuously expanding Transics-branded portfolio of digital solutions is helping commercial fleets accelerate improvements across their value chain,” said Peter Bal, Business Leader Digital Customer Services EMEA with ZF Commercial Vehicle Control Systems. “ZF is offering a powerful combination of technologies which significantly improve fleet efficiency and enhance customer service capabilities including our new comprehensive e-CMR service to support end-to-end digital freight processing through a single application.”

ZF’s Fully Integrated and Open E-CMR Platform Solution

Representing the full digitalization and ‘paperless’ transportation of goods internationally, ZF is offering a new seamless service with an open, integrated and interoperable e-CMR platform solution to support transporters and shippers. Having entered its first partnership agreement with leading e-CMR platform ‘Collect & Go’, ZF will support all aspects of the electronic documentation required by shippers, transporters and end customers. With over 30 countries already accepting e-CMR in what is expected to rapidly become the industry norm, ZF is supporting early adopter fleets with a comprehensive support service.

Providing a ‘single-window’ view of the transport and logistics process, ZF’s solution takes care of the whole electronic document process and is supported by its Transics-branded TX-FLEX driver app. Designed for ease-of-use by drivers and with flexibility for fleet managers, TX-FLEX offers a fully transparent, one-stop shop to manage all elements of a delivery. Drivers can use the app to obtain electronic signatures, take photos of damaged goods, scan barcodes and capture any other details that may be relevant to the delivery or collection.

As an official reseller of leading eCMR platforms, ZF will offer cost-effective packages that cover the entire process including project management, training, invoicing and service support. The solution offers significant added value for fleets including cost savings, not just on paper and printing, but by significantly reducing administration and manual paper trail processes. Enhancing the quality of the issuance process, including fully transparent delivery tracking throughout and trustworthy e-signature verification, it enables fewer inspection stops to check paperwork, takes security to a higher level and supports customers enhancing their logistics services.
