PeopleNet, a provider of fleet mobility systems for reducing cost per mile and improving safety/compliance, announced that Southeastern Freight Lines is replacing its technology with PeopleNet’s open platform.
“PeopleNet’s flexibility has made it very easy to move our extensive collection of in-house applications without major conversion issues,” said Braxton Vick, Southeastern Freight Lines senior vice president of corporate planning and development. “Plus, PeopleNet offers us tremendous expansion opportunities for future applications that will continue to enhance the safety of our drivers’ environment.”
SEFL’s proprietary applications — driver logs, vehicle/driver tracking, real-time pick-up and delivery workload management, electronic driver vehicle inspection report, survey system for driver feedback about maintenance performance, and more — are integrated with PeopleNet’s Vehicle Management data and other telematics information such as GPS location. The company is also integrating PeopleNet’s In-Cab Navigation and other driver performance metrics.
“Forward-thinking fleets like Southeastern Freight Lines that want to leverage technology and communications to make their operations as safe, efficient, and compliant as possible are interested in a COPE model (company owned, personally enabled) fleet mobility platform that will take them into the future and enable profitable growth,” said Mark Kessler, PeopleNet senior vice president.
The fleet will have installed 2,800 units when the implementation is complete.
