Seven principles for the connected fleet

Gain unprecedented visibility into your assets, vehicles, and drivers to deliver through the supply chain.

 
  1.  
     

    Establish a highly secure foundation for your operations from edge to edge.

    Protect your fleet from dispatch to driver through a comprehensive cybersecurity solution. Layer in what you need in a consulting, planning, monitoring, and response strategy to fit your business.

  2.  
     

    Manage your business more efficiently by knowing where your assets are.

    Monitor the location and status of equipment and remotely manage field employees. Manage labor and fuel costs, maximize scheduling and dispatch, improve fleet maintenance, and reduce response times.

  3.  
     

    Reduce spoilage by monitoring cargo temperatures inside each trailer.

    Track GPS locations, temperature, and humidity levels to monitor cargo conditions for proper quality delivery. Automated mobile alerts deliver status and cargo updates.

  4.  
     

    Stay connected with your drivers and provide the information they need to succeed.

    Use mobile devices to connect dispatch to drivers, through delivery schedules and manifests. Proof of delivery and timecard data can be sent directly to the back office.

  5.  
     

    Enable safe and efficient driver communications with AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk.

    Deliver a one-touch microphone solution that works with a variety of smartphones, rugged devices, and apps, and adheres to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s “one touch” guidelines for Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) operators.

  6.  
     

    Monitor engine diagnostics to automate logging and foresee problems.

    Comply with ELD mandates using platforms that provide all hardware, connectivity, and reporting to electronically log Hours of Service and perform Electronic Driver Vehicle Inspections. Use on-board engine diagnostics and maintenance to identify problems, protecting driver safety as well.

  7.  
     

    Enhance time off the road with in-vehicle entertainment through DIRECTV.

    DIRECTV provides hundreds of channels of news, sports, and entertainment to drivers on laptops, phones, and tablets to help attract and retain good drivers.

Today’s IoT, network, and communication technologies provide new opportunities for fleet operators.
