"Our I_Site solution is addressed to all our customers who aim to reduce their costs, improve productivity and increase safety management in their logistics operations - whether they are a one-truck customer or have a big fleet of forklift trucks across multiple sites globally. Numerous safety-oriented customers around the world have reduced the number of accidents dramatically by introducing I_Site."
Marcus: It’s about managing your trucks and managing your drivers! Each forklift truck is equipped with a telematics device which communicates over the telecom network to a web server and provides the customer with vital information on how their trucks and drivers perform. This data is accessible via the web portal or smartphone app, which is perfect when you are on the move or working remotely.
Marcus: Using a fleet management system comes with many benefits in four main areas:
Marcus: Following the current trend, in only a couple of years from now all forklift trucks will be connected – as well as many other “things” in society. We will also be able to connect other vehicles and machines in our customers’ logistics operations. The system will deliver all this information to the users in smarter ways, more efficiently and agile, in real time or exactly when and how you want it.
Marcus: We are very excited to see who will be our customer with the 50.000th connected truck! It really is a milestone in our forklift truck history since none of our competitors are even close to a similar global footprint. But at the same time that number is growing so quickly that we will soon be able to celebrate100.000 and even 500.000 connected trucks.

Lars Jonsson, Project and Fleet Manager, at Cloetta’s chocolate factory in Sweden, says: “We are very impressed by the I_Site solution, especially the safety follow-up aspect and the possibility to control driver access. I_Site was partly a reason why we selected Toyota as our forklift truck supplier one year ago”.
