The backstage secrets of the EU Presidency

During the six months of the Hungarian EU Presidency, monitoring the fleet of 148 vehicles transporting the diplomats and distinguished guests was one of the greatest logistic challenges. The task was successfully completed thanks to Best Way Traffic, a member of a Hungarian- owned transportation informatics group operating in 14 European countries. The company supported the work of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs with its dynamic traffic congestion monitoring system and other innovative technological solutions.


The monitoring of the148- vehicle fleet which was provided for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by Porsche AG and operated by the Republic Guard Regiment - 48 Audi A8 3.0 TDI Quattro, 50 Audi A7 3.0 TDI Quattro and 50 Volkswagen Multivan – was a real challenge. The technology developed by the transportation informatics group, Lambda-Com Ltd. meets the highest quality standards and enabled up-to-the-minute information for the colleagues of the Republic Guard Regiment regarding when a vehicle started, arrived at its destination or a stopover, how long it stayed and how many kilometres it travelled. The vehicles could always avoid congested high-traffic routes with the help of the so-called speed map, ensuring the timely arrival of diplomats at the EU-Presidency events.
