Florilli Transportation renews
XATA MobileMax contract
Jun 24, 2009 10:04 AM
Florilli Transportation LLC has renewed its contract for XATA Corp’s MobileMax fleet operations system. The carrier will also run a pilot program with XATA’s navigation feature running on XATA’s TREQ-L color display.
The Iowa-based company, which specializes in delivery of temperature-controlled commodities, uses MobileMax by XATA to help use its 224-truck fleet more efficiently.
Florilli maximizes its fleet efficiency through MobileMax in-cab communications functions for sending and receiving driver messages, load information, and driver/vehicle data. MobileMax’s dual-mode communication system automatically switches between cellular- and satellite-based communications networks, depending on truck location and network availability. MobileMax automatically uses the least-cost communications mode.
“It is crucial that we have the ability to communicate with our drivers quickly and easily, and MobileMax provides that ability,” said Murry Fitzer, chief executive officer of Florilli Transportation. “With our fleet dispersed throughout the United States, hourly tracking information is equally critical, and it serves as a vital data feed to our monitoring tools and reporting systems.
“MobileMax’s reporting also supplies us with valuable engine data that helps us mitigate excessive idle time, improve our fleet’s fuel economy, and keep our fleet properly maintained,” said Fitzer. “This type of data helps drive our overall fleet optimization.”
