Updated Oct 12, 2012

XRS Corp., a provider of mobile fleet optimization software, announced on Tuesday, Oct. 9, that its Turnpike mobile solution has been selected as the official fleet optimization platform for the American Trucking Associations’ Interstate One truck used by America’s Road Team.

XRS said this is the first time that the high-tech image tractor-trailer will use an electronic log. The Turnpike solution is being installed in ATA’s Interstate One during the ATA Management Conference & Exhibition this week in Las Vegas, Nev., where the America’s Road Team captains also are receiving training.

XRS describes Turnpike as a technologically advanced low-cost easy-to-install solution that runs on drivers’ existing cell phones, smartphones and tablet computers. Turnpike will run on Motorola Xyboard for the America’s Road Team Captains. Interstate One’s exterior will feature ATA and XRS logos, as well as logos of other premier sponsors.

“We’re honored to have America’s Road Team Captains use our system,” said Christian Schenk, vice president of market development and product marketing at XRS. “Turnpike puts safety and compliance in the palms of drivers’ hands using mobile devices, and we’re excited that ATA’s public image and outreach program recognizes the importance of electronic logs in improving safety on the road.”
