Mack and Volvo Explore Telematics for Fleet Management
Samsara brings telematic solutions to recently inked deal.
In today’s trucking industry, technology is in the driver’s seat. Especially when it comes to fleet management. To help stay ahead of the curve, Mack Trucks and Volvo Trucks recently teamed with the Internet of Things provider Samsara to look for ways to improve truck safety and efficiency.
The Mack and Volvo fleet management systems are already using telematics to help fleet managers make their businesses run smoother. But Samsara is about to take things to a whole new level. Their portfolio brings together software, hardware and cloud to offer real-time visibility, analytics and AI to fleet management. And they serve a wide variety of industries such as field services, energy and construction in addition to transportation and logistics.
Focused on a Bright, More Efficient Future.
Volvo Trucks North America Director of Customer Productivity Solutions, Conal Deedy, had this to say, “We look forward to working with Samsara and their unique data systems. This opportunity allows us to explore how our customers can leverage Samsara’s integrated solutions for more efficient fleet management.”
Of course, one of the main priorities is to give fleet operations what it needs to be successful. “We hope to provide fleet managers and drivers with a more holistic understanding of their date and in turn, operate a safer and more efficient fleet,” according to Rushil Goe, Vice President and GM, Fleet Management at Samsara.
