Southeastern Freight Lines Equips Tractors With Onboard Mobile System
By: Southeastern Freight Lines May 13, 2014
Southeastern Freight Lines, a provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) services, has equipped its fleet of 2,850 tractors with an upgraded onboard mobile system.
Dubbed Blu.2, the technology was provided by PeopleNet. It draws on applications that incorporate the location, navigation, vehicle performance and other data related to a truck and its route. Southeastern’s fleet services department can now monitor the health of vehicles while they are on the road, send advance notifications if service may soon be required, or alert the maintenance team if a truck experiences an issue such as overheating. The new onboard technology comes in a mobile device and accommodates the carrier’s customized fleet-management applications, including electronic driver logs and driver vehicle-inspection reporting systems.
