Tellus – helps you comply with the new environmental requirements

The Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) has introduced new environmental requirements regarding digital sustainability reporting via the BEAST Supply 4.0 protocol, which will be implemented gradually starting from March 2024. These environmental requirements entail that suppliers on construction projects must report the fuel consumption for transports within the project. The reporting will apply to haulage companies conducting transports where Trafikverket is the client and has included the requirements in the procurement. Similar requirements are likely to be included by other in the future, which is why we have developed Tellus – an open API that helps you comply with the environmental requirements.

Connect Tellus to your app

This is how Tellus works

Tellus API is a web-based application with a REST API interface that can be connected to roughly 98% of all modern heavy trucks in Sweden. SmartCraft Tellus provides integrations against all the major truck manufacturers: Volvo, Scania, MAN and (soon) Mercedes, for the user to retrieve vehicle data such as fuel consumption between a specific time period. You could, for example, retrieve fuel consumption for an order automatically when it is completed. Read about Tellus in Swedish!
