Van den Bosch invests in new board computers


10 February 2017 – Van den Bosch Transporten invests in new board computers. The present communication system used in trucks is being replaced by the Trimble CarCube. In many ways, this modern and user-friendly board computer is an improvement. 


The CarCube is an advanced communication system for trucks. This next generation board computer has all kinds of modern functions, such as track & trace, use and performance data exchange, automatic driver identification and driving and rest times integration. The system is also equipped with truck navigation and documents can now be scanned and sent from the truck. 

Better communication

“The big advantage of the new board computer is the real time exchange of data”, Business Unit Manager Barry Gruijters of Van den Bosch Transporten says. He is involved intensively with the modernisation of the board computers. “We will now instantly have all important data at our disposal through the corresponding software. That means the driver is more and better able to keep track, thus simplifying and improving the cooperation between drivers and planners. Moreover, manual reading of data cartridges and driver cards will now be things of the past.”

Positive sounds
The replacement of the board computers started late last year. All Dutch trucks now have the new system. First reactions are positive, Gruijters finds. “Everyone had to get used to it, of course, but the advantages are crystal clear. Continuous data exchange enables us to keep track better and to be able to work more efficiently. We are looking forward to the coming period in which the phased introduction of the new board computer will take place.″
