Toyota Corporation and Grab are the largest ride-hailing service company in Southeast Asia. They recently announced a collaboration from them to provide better ride-hailing services throughout Southeast Asia.
Toyota developed the data-transmission “TransLog” driving recorder which is a device that captures driving patterns and deliver telematic services like the vehicle position management system to fleet customers. This project will now be extended to Southeast Asia for the first time.
With TransLog installed in 100 Grab rental cars, Toyota can analyze driving patterns captured by the recording devices, and consider steps to deliver connected services including user-based insurance, financing programs, and predictive maintenance that make up the Toyota Mobility Service Platform (MSPF).
Grab offers the widest range of on-demand transportation services in the most markets in Southeast Asia, with more than 55 million app downloads and over 1.2 million drivers in 87 cities across 7 countries.
This collaboration wants to explore new ways of delivering secure, convenient and attractive mobility services to their costumers in Asia.
As we all know, Toyota is a global leader in the automotive sector and one of the most popular brands with drivers across Southeast Asia. Grab said that they are excited and confident that this will benefit their drivers and they are looking forward to explore other ways to collaborate with Toyota in the future.
With this partnership, we can also look forward with a great opportunity with Toyota and Grab to give us greater and safer experiences throughout the days.
