Commercial vehicles on-road
Although commercial vehicles are generally subject to the technical trends in the automotive industry. They are tightly integrated in the logistics processes of operators. Manufacturers of commercial vehicles are following this development and providing new marketing models (for example full service leasing) as well as the integration of commercial vehicles into the customer processes. This means that information systems also support other marketing and cost calculation models throughout the product life cycle. This requirement forms a bridge between commercial and technical information management.
The following current conditions characterize the business segment:
- New design and polarization of OEM and trailer manufacturers
(OEM: total solution providers, trailer manufacturers: suppliers)
- New complexity in the power train and at driver assistance systems
- Demand on consistent intelligent transport solutions (ITS) consisting of telematic and logistic systems
- New legal requirements in the security area (e.g. active brake assistent)
