Freightliner Trucks - virtual technician

By: Freightliner  09-12-2011

Less Downtime. More Uptime.

When your check engine light illuminates it's up to you to head to the technician, who then uses sophisticated equipment and valuable time to determine the fault code and diagnose the problem. The delay between the event and service can result in even more damage. With Virtual Technician, the information goes straight to the source the second the fault code is issued.



As soon as it happens, your fleet manager or technician knows the issue and can alert the driver accordingly. The service location of your choice is contacted ahead of time so the right parts will there when you are and a skilled technician will be ready to roll. This means reduced on-site diagnostic and repair time.


With reduced diagnostic time, faster identification of emerging issues, elimination of repeat service visits and an excellent service experience by the customer, Virtual Technician is another example of how Freightliner helps your fleet run smarter.

Freightliner Trucks - cleaire

Cleaire systems are easily applied to existing equipment, allowing operators to economically comply with regulations and recapture the original anticipated equipment life cycle while avoiding costly replacement. Cleaire's retrofit technology replaces the muffler in the exhaust system of diesel-powered equipment, where it operates much like a catalytic converter in an automobile.


Freightliner Trucks - express assessment

You Can't Fix the Problem Before You Find It Normally, if you take your truck to a mechanic you have to wait until everyone ahead of you is back on the road before you can even find out what's wrong with your truck. That means at best you are waiting for hours just to find out what you can do next and at worst you spend a lot of time waiting in line to fix a tiny problem.
