• A new logistics platform

    As a digital brand of Volkswagen Truck & Bus, RIO offers digital solutions for the entire transportation and logistics ecosystem on its open and cloud-based platform. The RIO Box, which forms the basis for connecting the vehicles with the platform, has already been fitted as standard in all brand new MAN truck series in Europe since August 2017. The services offered on the RIO platform allow RIO and MAN to make a significant contribution to protecting the environment and the climate: for example, MAN customers can save fuel and CO₂ by improving tour and route planning and avoiding empty journeys.

  • Platooning

    A research project initiated by DB Schenker, MAN Truck & Bus, and the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences puts networked trucks into practical operation in everyday logistics for the first time. As part of the cooperation project agreed in May 2017, DB Schenker will be testing truck platoons as part of its regular operations and in real road traffic conditions on the A9 highway digital test field between Munich and Nuremberg for several months starting in June 2018.
