Smart mobility company Be-Mobile, part of the Proximus Group, and the Zeebrugge Port authority (MBZ) launched the free Flux app, enabling smoother and safer freight traffic in the port and beyond.
Via the app, truck drivers receive warnings and updates about the current situation at the port, but also about traffic on international roads in Europe. As such, the app contributes to an optimal supply chain, efficient freight traffic and safer roads.
Flux bridges the gap between the truck driver on the one hand and the port and its terminals on the other. Every terminal has been mapped, offering truck drivers the chance to easily find the way to their destination. With the Be-Mobile fleet management system, the port authority can warn or redirect drivers in case of dangerous situations.
Taking into consideration the current traffic, Flux will send the estimated time of arrival (ETA) to the connected terminals so they can take action when the truck would arrive too soon or too late. If necessary, the trucks can be guided to a parking space where the terminal can give the instruction to leave for a new slot. As such, the app optimizes the supply chain.
