Hino Trucks is now offering a web-based location and telematics solution for the medium-duty commercial truck market. Hino Insight offers GPS-based, remote fleet management capabilities to fleet operations of all sizes.

Insight offers a dashboard page on the web portal, which allows fleet managers to gain a daily snapshot of their fleet’s critical diagnostics and performance against established targets. The dashboard allows fleet managers to simultaneously access real-time vehicle and driver-related information including key metrics such as: Idle time fuel savings; targeted fleet performance for speed, acceleration, braking and fuel usage; identification of trucks with greatest performance improvement opportunities; in-route/driving fuel economy versus overall fuel economy and operating time utilization (drive time, idle time and PTO time), and more.

Insight also includes an automated email scheduling system that can be customized for user-defined groups of vehicles or drivers for selected reports, dashboards, vehicle critical and truck performance alerts, geofence/landmark parameters and planned maintenance items.

Advanced options available include: two-way dispatch/driver communication, electronic driver logs with hours of service (HOS) reporting, real-time job management, navigation routing, security/blind spot video monitoring, axle payload weight monitoring, security alert system with emergency call centre integration, seat belt and tire pressure monitoring, accelerometer accident reporting, and fully customized vocational solutions for applications such as snow plow, waste management, fuel delivery, and more.

Hino Insight is currently offered for Hino’s 2008 through 2012 model year trucks.
