Aliso Viejo, Calif. – July 16, 2014 – Telogis now brings built-in compliance, telematics and navigation services to Volvo Trucks customers. Volvo customers are able to access Telogis’ services via smartphones and tablets by leveraging Volvo’s integrated connected vehicle hardware, standard on new Volvo-powered Volvo trucks. It is also available for the existing 60,000 Volvo trucks already equipped with the connected vehicle hardware, making the Telogis platform ideal for all-Volvo or mixed fleets. Actionable information delivered through the Telogis platform helps transportation companies control costs, increase safety and Hours Of Service (HOS) compliance, improve customer service and enhance operations.
In commercial trucking’s evolving legislative and regulatory landscape, Telogis’ offerings for Volvo Trucks help drivers and back office teams manage FMCSA compliance and keep drivers safer by delivering electronic log tools and routing information that is specifically designed commercial drivers.
“We’re pleased to collaborate with Telogis to deliver tremendous value to motor carriers seeking flexibility and the robust information needed to fine-tune their operations,” said Göran Nyberg, president, Volvo Trucks North American Sales & Marketing. “Leveraging the connectivity of our vehicles to facilitate fleet management services represents a breakthrough for fleet managers, who are no longer captive to hardware. As part of our long-term strategic focus, we’ll look toward further integration of our vehicles with best-in-class fleet management solutions.”
“With increasingly complex compliance regulations and the need to more effectively manage safety, productivity and costs – telematics, compliance and navigation software are no longer a ‘nice to have’ – it’s now a ‘have to have,’” said Susan Heystee, executive vice president, worldwide sales at Telogis. “The ability to easily access mission-critical tools and information from the Telogis platform will transform the way Volvo Trucks customers do business.”
For-hire and private fleets can eliminate paper logs and more easily manage and meet federal, state and local mandates with Hours of Service (HOS), Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIR) and more with Telogis Compliance. Coupled with Compliance is Telogis Navigation that delivers truck-specific, real-time road conditions and community-based navigation updates that help to maximize uptime and improve on-time arrivals.
Through hardware that is built into all new Volvo trucks, customers can activate Telogis services over the air, delivering the most reliable, scalable and comprehensive fleet management solution on the market. Drivers and back-office teams gain insights that help improve operations, asset utilization and driver safety for fleets of all sizes. Customers also benefit from viewing their entire fleet of vehicles and assets on one dashboard whether they are all Volvo or mixed fleets.
Volvo Trucks and Telogis will offer three fleet management packages all of which are currently available for order – Telogis Fleet for Volvo Trucks, Telogis Compliance & Navigation for Volvo Trucks and a bundled option that provides the full suite of services offered in the Fleet and Compliance & Navigation packages. Telogis services are enhanced by the addition of Volvo- specific vehicle data, providing fleet managers and operators with an inside look at driver/vehicle performance and history.
