Scania Onboarding

Step-by-step instructions to connect your vehicles to RIO.


Prerequisites for activation:

  • You need an account with both RIO and My Scania.
  • Both accounts must be registered to the same company with the same VAT or tax number.
  • The Scania trucks that you want to activate on RIO must be connected with a signed connectivity agreement with Scania. In other words, you must be able to see these vehicles in My Scania. Contact your local Scania dealer for more information about My Scania and how to connect your vehicles.
  • Important: You do not need to book a Data Access Package on the Scania site to be able to transmit data to RIO!
  • You must have the rights of an administrator in the RIO account. This is the only way to access the fleet administration.
  • Have the vehicle identification numbers (VIN) of the relevant Scania trucks ready.


The Fleet Administration

Log in to your RIO account and navigate to Fleet Administration via the main menu.



Start the onboarding

Once you have arrived in the Fleet Administration, you only have to click on Add. You are ready to go.



The type of vehicle

There are four different vehicle types you can activate for your RIO account. In this case, we are only interested in the truck. Therefore, click on the corresponding truck image.



The manufacturer

You can activate vehicles from numerous manufacturers. Select your brand.



The telematics provider

Each truck can be equipped with different telematics hardware. Please select Scania Telematics here.



Data privacy policy

Read the privacy policy for the connection carefully and confirm it.



The comparison of the tax numbers

In this step we will show you the tax number of your company that is stored at RIO. If you are sure that this is also stored in My Scania, click Connect.



Your vehicles

Now enter the vehicle identification numbers of the vehicles you want to activate at RIO.



Do not forget a vehicle

You can enter as many vehicles as you like. As long as they are connected on the Scania page, they can also be activated. If you see this display, the synchronisation was successful.



The Geo L service

In order to be able to see the position data on the RIO map, you still need to book the appropriate service. In this case it is Geo L, which you need for every truck. In addition to the familiar Geo features, the costs also include all costs that arise from the connection of your external account.



Booking in the Marketplace

In our Marketplace checkout, the selection has already been made and the appropriate service has also been selected. All you have to do is click on continue.



Payment method

If you have already booked services on the RIO platform, then you know this step. Simply select the desired payment method and proceed to the last step.



The confirmation

Check everything again for correctness and then confirm the booking. Now* you can see your trucks in the fleet monitor and start working on just one map.

*Here several systems work hand in hand and exchange large amounts of data. Therefore, in some cases it may take a little while until you find your vehicle on the map for the first time. After one hour at the latest, everything should fit.


We wish you the best of success with the connection of your Scania vehicles!
