International Truck, the commercial truck brand of Navistar International Corp., announced it launched Intelligent Fleet Care, a suite of connected-vehicle solutions that will be standard for its new on-highway vehicles ordered starting Dec. 15.

It’s a package approach that customers want, according to the Lisle, Ill.-based company.

“They want actionable insights into the health status of their fleet and what needs to be done to keep it up. They want a faster, more efficient service and repair process,” said Chintan Sopariwala, vice president of aftersales operation and connected vehicles at Navistar.



“And along with this, they want predictive diagnostics and other solutions that enable them to optimize the fleet’s performance," he said. "With Intelligent Fleet Care, they will now command all these benefits in one comprehensive package.”

Intelligent Fleet Care builds on International’s all-makes OnCommand Connection advanced remote diagnostics feature and its International 360 service communications and fleet management platform.

Along with these capabilities, Intelligent Fleet Care adds multiple solutions that are driven by vehicle performance and telematics data, including:

  •  Fleet Health Monitoring that delivers greater uptime by helping fleets avoid roadside breakdowns and derate events.
  •  Advanced Preventive Maintenance.
  •  Advanced Fuel Analytics.
  •  Tire Pressure Monitor Reporting.
  •  Over the Air Programming.
  •  Gateway Integrations.

Aftermarket subscriptions for Advanced Preventive Maintenance and Fleet Health Monitoring are available for existing vehicles as well. — Transport Topics
