Recently, one of the largest exhibition halls in Donetsk, «Expodonbass», has opened its doors to «Expo-Trans», a specialized transport and logistics exhibition. Gurtam partners in Ukraine, Overseer representatives, have kindly shared their visions on this occasion.
Located in the heart of Europe, vastly benefitting from its geographical location, Ukraine has all the necessary potential of giving its transport industry the decent dynamics. This year the exhibition has served as common grounds both for small and upstream players, embracing the vast audience from Ukraine and the neighboring countries.
The exhibition delved into the latest developments and achievements in the area of commercial, municipal, railway transport, covering the properties of storage equipment, logistics, GPS tracking systems and other aspects of transport segment.
A single open platform offered the residents to clearly evaluate the properties of new vehicles used for construction and agriculture; urban and intercity buses of Ukrainian produce, including those with a capacity of carriage for disabled passengers.
The exhibition also facilitated a marquee event – the first specialized conference on industry, «The transport sector as a modern business segment», was also embraced in the framework of the event.
The participants of the conference were heads of regional and city councils, representatives of the International Freight Association of Ukraine, Ukrainian Transport Union, transport enterprises of Donetsk, Lugansk, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhye regions.
According to Alexander Ryschenko, the first deputy head of the Chief Department of key industries and energy of Donetsk regional administration: «The empowerment of autos and inevitable replacement of the rolling equipment with modern and comfortable vehicles is becoming a future fad. The introduction of GPS monitoring for inter-regional and inter-urban route tracking, controlling each vehicle for speed violations, safety regulations, deviation from the intended route, is gathering pace».
Overseer has presented its latest achievements in the area of GPS navigation, fuel control, CAN bus data reception, methods of personal security enhancement and cargo integrity. Other navigational equipment could be found at the stalls of our partners, including the famous brands of Teltonika, Ruptela, Queclink, GalileoSky, BCE, Technoton and many others, used for providing their customers with satellite tracking and navigation services. Although Overseer is monitoring the different suppliers for optimal solutions, in terms of quality software ˗ Overseer has always been loyal to Wialon Pro.
In the course of event, Overseer performed the walk- through demonstration of Wialon Pro software solutions for satellite monitoring in sketching their own routes, running fuel reports, tracking the movement of monitored units in real time, along with setting up notifications and receiving messages on the status of operations, spoke on the cases of pressing the alarm button, and other.
The exhibition has brought some positive dynamics, expanding Overseer’s professional client network, whereas other companies were showcasing their techniques. According to Vladimir Fitenko, the Director of Technical Department of Overseer: «Despite the fact that the exhibition lasted for less than 3 days, we managed to get in touch with a large number of potential customers. The surprising fact, however, was the lack of recognition of some obvious benefits of GPS services from the people professionally engaged in these areas. Many people still don’t recognize all the obvious advantages of on-line fuel monitoring, and the importance of other factors, crucial for companies, providing GPS tracking services for years. The event was held in high gear, as we managed to sufficiently expand our client database by letting the potentially feasible agreements. We are thinking of holding on to the fine tradition of running such events in the future».
In less than a few months this year, from June 4-7, the Transport Logistic exhibition focused on logistics, mobility, IT and supply chain management, will be held. The event will take place in Germany with Gurtam introducing the advantages of Wialon software solutions to the international audience.
