PacLease Partners with Trimble to provide Telematics

Trimble announced today that PACCAR Leasing Company (PacLease), one of the fastest-growing commercial truck leasing companies in the global transport industry, has rolled out Trimble’s telematics solution – Truck4U – across its new truck rental and leasing fleet in Australia.

PacLease launched its Australian Truck Rental and Leasing Services division earlier this year and has deployed the Truck4U solution, enabling rental and lease customers to better monitor and manage their operation with access to accurate, real-time information.

Truck4U is a fixed on-board unit that provides real-time fleet management capabilities such as vehicle tracking, engine management, vehicle performance and accident reconstruction.

PacLease’s rental and leasing customers will now have access to a range of Trimble fleet tools designed to improve driver safety, lower running costs and better manage assets.

“We are excited to be partnering with PacLease Australia to deliver our telematics platform to its customers, providing them with increased fleet visibility and efficiency,” said  Michel Van Maercke, general manager, Trimble’s Transport and Logistics Division, Asia Pacific and EMEA.

“PACCAR Leasing is at the forefront of the global transport industry and the extension of our partnership with Trimble reaffirms our commitment to investing in innovative solutions that help us provide our customers with a superior full-service offering that meets their specific transport needs,” said Olen Hunter, director, PacLease Australia.

Trimble launched Truck4U to the Australian market in May 2015. Trimble offers end-to-end support for its Truck4U solution. For more information on Truck4U, visit:  www.trimbletl.com/board-technology/truck4u.
