HABBL: Real-time information for every trip

Efficient transports

If your vehicles are expected at Mercedes-Benz car factories, we will now guide your drivers – without making a single phone call. What do you do after a traffic jam? Take a break or keep driving? When will a loading dock be available? HABBL pushes out the latest information to everyone along the logistics chain. Effortlessly – no need to ask. Order Management guides drivers using the app. In the portal, dispatchers can see a trip’s current status and ETA. That way, everyone has plenty of advance notice about when and where the lorry will be unloaded. Of course, the drivers still have to accelerate, steer and brake.

Sign up and participate

VDA 4996: Get there easily with HABBL

Join up and send off all your drivers with HABBL. They can then automatically drive ahead to Mercedes-Benz car factories. No sign-ins or other interruptions required. They can pull right up to the correct loading dock, too. That will keep things rolling for you!

Arrive on time in comfort

With HABBL, drivers have to do only one thing when heading to Daimler: sign in at the start of the trip with the cargo manifest number. Everything else is handled by a process that was developed by Daimler Logistik, Inform and HABBL based on VDA Recommendation 4996 and that runs in the background automatically. Every 15 minutes, the HABBL app sends the current GPS position and the lorry’s expected arrival time (ETA) at the factory gate.

No more waiting

To shorten processing times at the factory gate, the driver is sent a message before he reaches his destination. If incoming traffic is moving nicely and the right dock is clear, the driver can drive up straight away. If traffic is backed up, the app asks the driver to take his next break early. This eliminates unnecessary waiting times for the driver.

Straight to the dock

Shortly before reaching his destination, the HABBL app automatically shows the driver an access code for the factory. The driver can punch in the code to drive right inoffroad navigation then takes him straight to his loading dock from the entrance gate. That does away with paper maps and complicated route lookups.
