VW RioVolkswagen Truck & Bus is to launch a digital logistics portal in Brazil in tandem with the group’s digital brand, Rio.

The Rio portal, which is based on vehicle data intelligence and stored in the cloud, will offer up to 20 services, which are currently purchased individually. These range from ordering parts, overhauling security monitoring and providing tailor-made insurance policies.

The Rio portal mirrors similar services introduced in Europe and aims to increase logistics revenue.

The company said it aimed to extend Rio to Mexico, Argentina and Chile. It will also expand its range of services, allowing the tracking of delivery across all logistics services.
