The service expansion will allow industrial vehicle OEMs to gain connectivity between fleets across North America, Europe and Australia.

HED is hoping to further expand coverage in future with certifications in South America, the Middle East and Africa.

Paul Ludwig, the company’s President and CEO, said, “This effort is just the beginning of the globalisation of our CANect Telematics solution for customers who operate across multiple countries.”

CANect Telematics is an end-to-end solution designed to provide OEMs with complete flexibility in the design of their own telematics solutions.

Deployed by the OEM, the CANect portfolio provides software applications for end users to monitor their fleets and has proven to be a useful tool for a variety of applications, from condition-based maintenance to system integration for monitoring moisture, air and power levels.
