Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) and Zonar Systems, Inc. announced last month that DTNA has become a minority investor in Zonar. The two companies have been partners since 2011, but this new investment marks a milestone in DTNA and Zonar’s shared goal of improving transportation logistics through intelligent connectivity.
DTNA and Zonar’s Strategic Partnership
Zonar has long been a leader in providing electronic fleet inspection, tracking and operations solutions for public and private fleets, with an emphasis in fuel savings, simpler compliance, increased uptime, and improved safety. Partnered with one of America’s leading vehicle manufacturers, this team is sure to be unstoppable when it comes to revolutionizing telematics. President and CEO of Daimler Trucks North America, Martin Daum, said of this partnership, “The strategic partnership provides DTNA the ability to leverage the agile development and rapid innovation cycles for which Zonar is known. Zonar’s solutions, combined with DTNA’s industry leadership in engineering, will benefit customers across all markets. The future of DTNA’s and Zonar’s products will evolve, but our ultimate focus is on increasing efficiency and safety – benefitting everyone on the road.”
What’s Next for DTNA and Zonar?
DTNA and Zonar anticipate a technological revolution through connected vehicles and foresee significant benefits from their new partnership for both fleets and individual truck drivers. The two companies will continue to develop new technologies. Although Zonar will continue to operate independently as its own company, the CEO of DTNA, Martin Daum, will now sit as a member of its Board of Directors. Detroit Connect, DTNA’s complete telematics solution, was created and powered by Zonar. Today, it is used in over 150,000 vehicles across the United States.
