As illustrated by a number of recent industry acquisitions, we expect to see the pendulum swing toward further consolidation across the transportation technology market. This enables many solution providers to bring additional functionality and value to their customer base. So, what opportunities and challenges does this trend pose to fleets moving forward?
As a past participant and current Certified Transportation Professional (CTP), I’m thrilled that we’ve sent five of my colleagues to NPTC’s Private Fleet Management Institute (PFMI) which is being held this week in Jacksonville, Florida. The PFMI is a five-day intensive educational program offering courses on Fleet Finance, Operations, Safety, Human Resources, and Fleet Equipment & Maintenance...
Welcome to the second post in our series of “Meet the Team” blogs! Occasionally, we will profile one of our valued Qualcomm team members, showcasing their experience and expertise, role at Qualcomm, how their work positively impacts the fleets we serve and their insights on industry trends. Today we feature Tom Neppl, Qualcomm’s new appointed vice president of operations.
By reducing out-of-route miles by even a quarter of a percent a month, CoPilot® TruckTM pays for itself. The highly customizable and flexible application helps you operate more efficiently, cost effectively, and safely. But don't take our word for it. Attend a webinar at which Load One president and CEO John Elliott will share firsthand how CoPilot Truck helped reduce out-of-route miles by over 3%.
Over the past year, I’ve attended a number of industry events, many of which centered on fleet safety. Based on the various topics debated at these discussions, it is clear the industry continues to be highly invested in keeping drivers safe and connected, and enabling fleet managers to proactively monitor and address driver behavior. Each of these issues are spurring investigations around the new EOBR mandate, CSA and HOS initiative, and subsequent implications to driver and fleet safety, which will carry over into the New Year.
As we approach the end of the year, we would like to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season! With many of our Qualcomm associates taking time off to be with family and friends in the coming weeks, we will resume our blog posts after Jan. 1. During this time of year, many of our employees have had the opportunity to give back to their community through various service events and projects. We are particularly proud to support Wreaths Across America...
This week’s “Fleet Connections” video features Thom Pronk from C.R. England and Victor Malchesky from Swift Transportation talking about how their organizations have made safety a value, not just a priority. As Thom points out, “Obviously safety is a priority for everybody in our industry and that is something that everybody says but when you say ‘safety as a value,’ it’s something where it’s not just what you talk about but it’s really who you are as a carrier.” C.R. England has been around for over 92 years and they attribute their success to the fact that they’re able to show their customers how important their freight is to them through their safety programs.
During a recent interview with Red Eye Radio, we discussed the benefits of Qualcomm’s MCP50 platform for smaller carriers. At Qualcomm, we understand every fleet’s operation, size and budget are unique. We know this necessitates the development of a range of mobile fleet management solutions, which allow carriers to select the platform and applications that best meet their operational needs and price constraints.
Transportation companies face obstacles: increasing competition, fluctuating fuel costs, demanding delivery schedules, rising costs and stricter government requirements for safety and compliance. For less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers and other carriers with multiple stops, these challenges can be even greater as they operate within metropolitan areas. With the right technology, fleets can consolidate and manage freight; plan and monitor transit time, enable drivers to plan and record trip information automatically, and improve delivery time for customers. Dayton Freight Lines, a LTL carrier, realized early on that adopting mobile information technology was crucial to their success.
For the third consecutive year, we’re honored to support Wreaths Across America (WAA). WAA is a nonprofit organization whose mission to Remember, Honor, and Teach is carried out in part each year by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies on National Wreaths Across America Day each December. We are proud and honored to be able to join with so many others in the trucking industry to support Wreaths Across America in its annual initiative...
