Tata Motors also introduced a Telematics & Fleet Management Service called "Tata FleetMan" today.

Features:
  • Real time vehicle tracking
  • Geo-fencing - setting specific zones where you'll be notified of any movement by your truck
  • Alerts designed to notify you via email or SMS regarding multiple situations like over-speeding, stoppage, main supply removal, entering or exiting a geo-fence etc.
  • Trip management which defines start and end locations with intermediate landmarks, estimated time and allows you to track the actual progress of the specified vehicle against the set parameters
  • Report generation to provide performance for individual vehicles as well as the fleet
  • If you don't have internet on the go, you can check the vehicle's location with the SMS-based query facility
  • Tata FleetMan units installed in the vehicles can be diagnosed, programmed or configured remotely

This only includes the Tata FleetMan access charges. Telecommunication charges to be paid separately to the telecom service provider.

Thanks for the coverage, was the Prima 3138.K been used as a demo vehicle earlier? some awkward spray painting on the wheels (extended to the tyres) looks like already registered.

Why TATA is still keeping old Headlamp place covered with sheet? It has already placed Headlamps on bumper as per new govt. guidelines.

They should have re-designed it and made smooth. Truck owners put two extra aftermarket HL without leveler in those places and this is dangerous for oncoming traffic also defying new govt. guidelines.

Any clue on this?

The Tata LPT 3723 looks like its eyes have been scooped out!! Can we get drive report of these beasts?? please!!!

This seems to be a very good move from TATA when there is a onslaught ready from international players with very India specific models!

The headlamps have been moved to the bumper since the inception of the LPT 3118 I believe.

This is because the lower the mounting position, the more the road is illuminated.

The original position has been left as an option for custom body builders.



@Parrys:

Please upload more pics of the 3723 if you can. This thing is incredible, as if the LPT 3118 wasn't satisfying transporters, they had to come out with this .



Furthermore, why is the wiremesh screen missing in the 3723 grill? The LPT 3118Cs came with them, and they made them much more handsome.
