By On-Site StaffTrucks
A new telematics platform for fleet managers and drivers is available now from Mack Trucks.
The manufacturer announced a partnership with fleet management and tracking firm Geotab June 22 that will provide a range of data points and reports to improve productivity and uptime.
Geotab Connected by Mack includes Geotab Driver, which leverages cloud computing and devices installed in every Mack vehicle to send engine and positional data to the cloud and generates automatic duty status logs.
“The driver can access these through the Geotab Drive app on a mobile device, allowing for an easy-to-use option to receive a comprehensive and accurate record of duty status,” Mack said in a release.
The platform requires no additional installation or hardware on Mack models from 2015 on.
