Celcom Axiata Berhad (Celcom) and Vale have entered into a partnership to deploy smart fleet management solutions in the Teluk Rubiah Maritime Terminal (TRMT).
In a joint statement, the companies said the vehicle telematics and drowsiness detection system technology is enabled by Celcom’s LTE connectivity and Internet-of-Things (IoT) platforms whilst the safe and secured logistic ecosystem for Vale is powered by cloud global positioning system (GPS) and machine-to-machine technologies.
The smart fleet management solution will be deployed for Vale’s and its vendors’ vehicles that consist of trucks and heavy machinery, covering both indoor and outdoor areas in TRMT, Celcom said.
In addition, Celcom said the partnership also includes the provision of 4G mobile connectivity to all Vale employees, GPS solutions for any of Vale’s vehicle applications, cloud connectivity for remote working and operating smart app for web and mobile functions for alerts and base views.
The application of the array of IoT solutions will contribute towards enhancing efficiency, safety and security of Vale’s fleet and machineries operations in TRMT – an important iron ore distribution hub for Vale in the Asia Pacific region, it added.
Idham Nawawi, CEO of Celcom Axiata Berhad said the collaboration with Vale signifies Celcom’s growing IR4.0 presence as a digital enabler and driving IoT adoption across industries.
“Celcom is honoured by this recognition from Vale as it further demonstrates our commitment in advancing Malaysian and international industries,” he said.
CEO of Vale in Malaysia, Rodrigo Ribeiro de Araújo said, “Safety is at the heart of everything that we do in Vale.
The use of new IoT technologies at TRMT will help us to improve risk management, incident prevention and operational excellence; in line with our focus towards becoming a safe and reliable operator.”
The vehicle telematics and drowsiness detection system solution technology effectively measures and ensures fleets are well functioning in accordance with road safety guidelines, Vale said.
Through the Fleet Management solution, drivers’ behaviours can be monitored and analysed remotely.
The initiative is also aligned with Vale’s commitment to enhancing its safety performance, by leveraging on the latest innovative solutions, it added.
“Analytics is an integral component of the solution. It is backed by a state-of-the-art AI-powered mobile surveillance and processor, elevating driving experiences with driving behaviour alerts and real-time monitoring for fleet managers to manage and reduce potential risk.”
“This will transform the nation’s road and transport ecosystem, as well as the heavy-industriallandscape, towards the development of a smart digital nation.” Idham added
Meanwhile, Celcom has included Vale’s TRMT as one of its top priorities when 5G is made ready.
The arrival of 5G technology at the fully automated port and its surrounding areas will also boost digital experiences within the communities nearby – in line with Vale’s community development strategy that promotes an inclusive development in Manjung, Celcom said.
