Hardware components for smooth fleet management
The Linde connect hardware components connect the forklift truck fleet with the associated database software. They collect and transmit control and sensor data and make them available for further processing. They also serve as an electronic ignition lock with PIN or RFID identification.
New trucks are delivered with the Linde connect hardware as standard, and all components are also available as retrofit solutions for existing forklift trucks and those from other manufacturers. The connection to the Linde Cloud is established via GPRS transmission as standard. The communication with local databases works via WLAN.

connect: desk in Detail
The dashboard serves as the communication hub for connect:desk. Fleet managers can use individually adaptable widgets, such as the calendar, forklift truck notifications, and accesses, to monitor and inspect their fleet. All messages can be forwarded to them directly by email if necessary.
In the organization area, fleet managers can edit the driver, job location, assigned forklift trucks and other information. The hierarchically structured list display offers an overview of the organizational structure and simplifies the assignment and management of access and usage rights.
Tables, detailed views and various input elements enable flexible viewing, maintenance and expansion of large amounts of data. For example, drivers’ licenses, training, and health checks can be managed with ease.
The log book provides an overview of all recorded events for the individual forklift trucks. The pre-op check table lists all pre-op checks carried out for the selected forklift trucks as well as the associated answers from the drivers. Interactive diagrams show unusual charging levels and logouts and can be grouped according to driver and forklift truck. This allows fleet managers to see exactly who used which forklift truck and when.
In the zones area, fleet managers use their own hall or plant plans to plan and configure zone areas and hall accesses and define automated speed adjustments if necessary. For example, forklift truck speed is controlled in a targeted manner at crossings or in narrow areas, which increases safety.
The usage analysis provides an overview of the usage and capacity utilization of all forklift trucks. The interactive diagram shows how long and for what purpose the drivers have used the selected forklift trucks. It also lists shock values, the progression of the battery charge status and the distribution of the zone passages.
The coordination category provides data about drivers as well as the usage and capacity utilization of all forklift trucks. The forklift truck distribution provides an overview of the composition of the entire fleet—organized according to manufacturer, forklift truck type and other criteria. The fleet lists all forklift trucks with their most important characteristics. All training carried out and outstanding for the drivers can be found under driver training.
The service area lists the service and maintenance dates for all fleet forklift trucks. On this basis, fleet managers can bundle maintenance dates in a targeted manner and reduce costs.
What is Fleet Management?
Fleet management allows a company’s forklift truck fleet to be controlled centrally. This mainly involves optimizing the availability of the individual forklift trucks and coordinating the distances that are traveled. Modern forklift trucks continuously collect data for this purpose, which provides information about your status and current capacity utilization. Fleet management helps to make optimum use of resources and detect problems such as capacity bottlenecks at an early stage.
For whom are Fleet Management Systems relevant?
Fleet managers have the task of planning forklift truck deployment in advance, optimizing processes and reducing the operating costs of the forklift truck fleet. The requirements for fleet management differ from company to company, as they are very much dependent on the size of the fleet. Modern fleet management software ensures that you can get the most out of any fleet size. It benefits the experienced fleet manager just as much as the casual user who only requires individual functions.
