Telia Company has joined forces with Finnish Neste to reduce emissions from the transportation sector and to improve business efficiency.

The first result from the co-operation is the Neste SmartTruck service for heavy-duty vehicles which allow companies to use a single interface to access numerous applications, including fuel consumption optimization, tachograph data transfer automation, and mobile refueling for professional drivers.

The Neste SmartTruck service has been designed as a platform for new features and applications. It is the first common step between Telia Company and Neste towards new types of services.

Lorries, buses and coaches produce around a quarter of CO2-emissions from road transport in the EU and around six percent of the EU’s total CO2-emissions. To curb the emissions the EU Commission has proposed to set the first ever CO2 emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles in the EU.

The Neste SmartTruck service for heavy-duty vehicles allows companies to use a single interface to access numerous applications, including fuel consumption optimization, tachograph data transfer automation, and mobile refueling for professional drivers.

The service also includes GPS positioning, which helps with fleet management, planning, and the driving itself. 

Kalle Mehtola, Head of IoT Sales, Telia Finland
With new technologies and business models, we can jointly develop responsible solutions for many industries. The challenges with transportation are so great that strategic and deep-rooted co-operation between the various parties is needed to resolve them. 

Mika Hyotylainen, VP of Marketing, Business Area Marketing & Services, Neste
Our business customers have been waiting for new solutions that both reduce emissions and improve business efficiency. Through the collaboration with Telia, we can offer an even broader range of services to our customers.
