SiriCOMM has announced that FleetNav Express by Maptuit is available at all SiriCOMM Wi-Fi Hot Spot locations. SiriCOMM is introducing FleetNav Express by offering a bundled services package that includes a one-month subscription to both InTouch and FleetNav Express. The bundled services package is offered at a 30 percent discount and is available to all customers through April 30.

This relationship reinforces SiriCOMM’s strategy to market its network as a robust application host platform, says Hank Hoffman, president and chief executive officer for SiriCOMM. “Our vision is to build a powerful network that brings value to the entire trucking industry, whether through our own services or by working with other industry leaders,” Hoffman says.

FleetNav Express is designed to allow owner-operators and small fleets to create accurate directions and optimized fuel plans for single-point or multi-point routes on truck-designated roads. Drivers access FleetNav Express through the use of an Internet connection: Once the driver has typed in the load origin and the stops along the way, FleetNav Express will return a direction set and map to the driver in a printer-friendly format.

“SiriCOMM is an ideal partner for Maptuit,” says Jeff Papows, Maptuit CEO. “Our intent is to make FleetNav Express accessible to the growing owner-operator market. To meet that goal, we needed a network solution that made FleetNav Express readily available to drivers while they are on the road. The SiriCOMM Wi-Fi Hot Spot network provides over 300 convenient connecting points for drivers to use the service. It only makes sense for us to work with SiriCOMM.”
