TOTAL, the international oil major, already offers one of the widest, premium ranges of lubricants for commercial vehicles across the world, with the RUBIA brand.
TOTAL’s RUBIA lubricants provide fleet managers with increasing vehicle efficiency, performance and protection help reduce costs and reduce the amount of maintenance required for your fleet management.
But for TOTAL, it is not just about demonstrating lubricants, but helping fleet operators to go even further with the launch of TOTAL Truck Solutions (TTS); the free transportation portal that is customised to support individual fleet needs. TTS is a platform dedicated to road hauliers, fleet managers, maintenance managers, owners and drivers.
What is TOTAL Truck Solutions?
TTS is a solutions-oriented online portal dedicated to providing truck drivers, fleet supervisors and maintenance managers with time-saving and cost-efficient tools to better manage their businesses. TTS supports road hauliers to optimise the productivity and performance of their vehicles and fleet management.
It does this by offering logistics operators money and time saving advice such as reducing fuel usage, preventive maintenance to avoid breakdowns, toll services, tax payments and regulations. There is also advice for drivers about the dedicated HGV AS 24 station network in the UK and Europe, and where to find AdBlue®.
TTS also keeps members informed with the latest industry updates such as new technologies, the environment, safety, fuel economy, availability of new lubricants, additives and added value services.
To achieve such useful insights, TOTAL decided to create a one stop place where you can access all products and services dedicated to fleet operators, such as the AS 24 fuel cards, cutting edge lubricants, oil analysis, toll badges, geolocation and tax recovery. TOTAL is also supported by partners such as OnTruck to help logistics operators optimise their routes and mutualise shipments.
Global savings simulator
TTS also boasts a comprehensive cost savings calculator, so fleet operators can save money on their fuel usage and fleet management. It considers distances travelled, fuel consumption, fleet size, fuel cards and the various countries visited.
By offering recommendations on increasing MPG, vehicle reliability, reducing toll expenses with discounts and dedicated services, plus improvements to cash flow, members can see what their savings could be if they made simple changes within their overall business.
TTS isn’t just a public platform managed by TOTAL, it is also a portal and community network of its own. Members can connect with their peers on personalised community forums, post questions and answers, or discuss the latest news.
The community site also allows for posting of job vacancies across the industry, which can be applied for directly from within the portal. This truly makes TTS the number one website for road hauliers to visit.
Keeping the transport community in the loop, TTS also provides a free monthly newsletter, so visitors can stay on top of all the latest updates and changes within the industry. Truck festivals, regulations, road building and much more will be covered, keeping recipients abreast of the latest transport industry news.
