I.D. Systems is the leading supplier of smart OEMindependent fleet management systems for forklifts and other industrial trucks for increasing the safety, reducing the operating costs and driving the productivity of MHE fleets.

The company’s US headquarters recently announced that Toyota Motor North America Service Parts and Accessories Operations (Toyota) group has agreed to purchase its PowerFleet® industrial vehicle management solution for 11 parts distribution centers throughout the U.S.

Initial distribution center (DC) deployment plans have been finalised with remaining DC’s to roll out in 2018. The agreement continues the established relationship between Toyota and I.D Systems, building on prior generation solutions used to manage and control forklifts in Toyota’s manufacturing operations.

I.D. Systems’ patented PowerFleet® Fleet Management System for forklifts and other industrial trucks helps improve supply chain safety and productivity by restricting vehicle access to only trained and authorized operators, providing electronic vehicle inspection checklists, and sensing and reporting vehicle impacts. In addition, PowerFleet® reduces fleet maintenance costs by automatically uploading vehicle operational data, reporting equipment problems, scheduling maintenance based on actual vehicle usage rather than by calendar or manual data entry, and helping determine the optimal economic time to replace equipment.
