High vehicle use

Efficiency is the sum of the details.

The third pillar of RoadEfficiency comprises the innovative Mercedes-Benz Uptime service and other pioneering advantages. In addition to simpler handling and work procedures, these also include the intelligent networking of driver, vehicle and logistics processes, which enables noticeable improvements in vehicle use and capacity utilisation.

With Mercedes-Benz Uptime we are pursuing a clear objective: to permanently minimise unscheduled vehicle downtimes and to make repairs predictable – thereby further increasing your vehicle availability.

Advantages at a glance:

  • Individual, personal support from Mercedes-Benz Service
  • Maximum planning control and efficiency for your workshop visits
  • Increased vehicle availability within your fleet
  • Transparency over the vehicle status of the entire fleet in real time
  • Prompt information and clear indication of recommended action when repair or maintenance requirements are identified
  • Integrated solutions for trucks and trailers
  • Attractive price of Service Contracts thanks to the integration of Mercedes-Benz Uptime

The new service Mercedes-Benz Uptime225, 226, 241 makes for even more reliable and cost-effective fleet operation. Because repair and maintenance needs can be identified at an early stage, making them predictable.

Constant communication from all the connected on-board systems generates several gigabytes of data per truck per day, which can be used for a range of vehicle diagnostic functions. The majority of diagnostic processes are already automatically and remotely monitored by Mercedes-Benz Uptime. This means that the cause of the fault is already known by the workshop before your vehicle arrives there.

After the data from the truck has been received, Mercedes-Benz Uptime automatically provides the Dealer with recommendations for action by the workshop within an average of 240 seconds. This enables diagnosis, clear recommendations for action and identification of parts required based on the repair instructions. In other words: the workshop is optimally prepared for your visit, even if it is unscheduled.

This shortens the diagnosis time at over 1500 of our Mercedes-Benz Dealers across Europe who are certified for Mercedes-Benz Uptime. This saves time and money. With the majority of Mercedes-Benz Uptime vehicles, workshop visits have already been reduced by over half thanks to early fault detection. That's not a promise, it's a fact.

This means: your trucks are back on the road faster. Mercedes-Benz Uptime means increased vehicle availability resulting in even more efficient vehicle use.

Intelligent connectivity linking driver, transport office and job opportunities, maximising efficiencies throughout the supply chain. Fleetboard Performance Analysis, coupled with our TruckTraining ensures that you continuously improve and maintain fuel efficiencies throughout your fleet.

Fleetboard’s next generation advanced telematics solutions help maximise utilisation, capacity and fuel efficiency of your fleet, providing you with clear visibility of your fleet anywhere and at anytime.

Fleetboard Performance Analysis supports and monitors your drivers to adopt a fuel-saving driving style that reduces wear at the same time. To this end, the telematics system records and analyses technical data from the truck. In addition to this, Fleetboard has exclusive access to data, allowing you to monitor the maximised use of the truck technologies, for example how often the Predictive Powertrain Control system is being used. All this information is continuously analysed and the driving style assessed which results in a corresponding grade being awarded. This enables an objective assessment of the driving style allowing training to be tailored to the individual driver's results. All in all, up to 15% fuel savings are possible as a result.
