J&R Schugel Trucking will be installing Maptuit’s FleetNav Directions, FleetNav Alert and FleetNav Fuel routing technologies throughout its national fleet in support of its drivers’ needs.

“Consistent with our corporate mission, at Schugel we want our drivers and managers to have the tools they need to keep drivers safe by keeping them on truck-approved roads,” says Brad Schugel, co-owner and vice president of New Ulm, Minn.-based J&R Schugel. “Using Maptuit’s FleetNav will also help us to improve our customer satisfaction by delivering our customers’ goods on time. With Maptuit’s FleetNav Directions, Fuel and Alerts, our drivers will receive the industry’s best fuel-optimized truck routing available anywhere via the mobile communications units. Our dispatch center will now be able to manage our fleet with increased efficiency by knowing where all our trucks are at any given time, making sure trucks are not out of route.”

Maptuit’s FleetNav Suite of tools is designed to provide trucking companies with a solution to help increase efficiencies and improve their bottom line through intelligent routing, fuel optimization and fleet monitoring capabilities. These tools enable back-office staff to manage customer locations and monitor fleet performance from any computer with Internet access, Maptuit says. FleetNav is a subscription-based solution designed to integrate with all leading fleet management and mobile communications systems to provide a comprehensive transportation optimization solution.

“Technology has become increasingly accepted by carriers of all sizes, and it helps trucking companies and drivers become more efficient, ensuring operators get to their final destination faster, safer and with greater detail than ever before” says Jeff Papows, chief executive officer of Burlington, Mass.-based Maptuit. “Our customers benefit from a bi-directional, real-time service and connected community of this scale. That is why it is important to us and to our customers to be able to work together as we’ve been doing with America’s premier fleets, who we consider to be our partners.

“By continuing to grow our community of drivers, Maptuit can increase our ability to improve on unknown truck restrictions, as drivers are continually providing them directly to Maptuit as they encounter them,” Papows says. “That information is fed to our servers and available quickly, making our network the most up-to-date and accurate in the nation. No other provider of truck routing can claim this but Maptuit.”
