At Omnitracs, we take great pride in all of our customers. They serve the trucking industry everyday with their safety and hard work, and uniquely deliver quality customer service across the country. With special mention of one customer for particularly standing out as a leader amongst its peers, we would like to highlight Transport America. Recently named Innovator of the Year by Commercial Carrier Journal, it was recognized for its weather alerts project. The innovative project is a truck specific weather alert application that overlays truck route data with weather information from the National Weather Service to systematically identify trucks within its fleet that are headed towards severe weather such as winter storms, blizzards, high winds, and more.

CCJ’s editorial team uncovers the impact of severe weather on the fleet, the highly advanced safety standards that Transport America operates under, and the innovation and perserverance that went into the design and build of the app. I encourage you to read the feature that is both interesting and inspiring.

Congratulations to Transport America on this incredible recognition and for leading the industry in safety and innovation!
