Con-way Truckload announced the installment of Maptuit NaviGo technology in all company trucks and Qualcomm-equipped owner-operator tractors. The in-cab navigation upgrade follows a successful pilot study launched in September 2011.
Fleetwide integration will occur through a developmental period, during which NaviGo systems will be individually tested in all trucks at the carrier’s facility in Joplin, Mo. The fleetwide installment and integration process will take an estimated six to eight months to complete.
“This is a significant upgrade of our navigation and communication capabilities that will raise the overall quality and efficiency of our operations,” says Saul Gonzalez, chief operating officer for Con-way Truckload. “By installing NaviGo in our trucks, we hope to improve safety performance, making life a little easier for our drivers and, in return, for our customers.”
