EROAD bolsters its focus on driver safety and productivity by partnering with HERE to enable truck-friendly routing and navigation in its solutions for commercial vehicle fleets.
Portland, Oregon – EROAD, a leading global transportation technology services company, and HERE Technologies, the leading location data and platform company, today announced an expanded partnership to bring new routing and navigation solutions to commercial vehicle fleets in North America, New Zealand and Australia.
HERE and EROAD jointly designed the navigation application that is integrated into EROAD Go+, a new solution in North America for enhanced pickup and delivery workflow. EROAD Go+ connects to a truck fleet’s transportation management system to mobilize dispatch and capture proof of delivery data digitally, yielding better visibility, less paperwork and safer, more productive drivers. The navigation tool will automatically import assigned stops from the driver workflow mobile app, providing both an optimized route overview as well as turn by turn navigation. Routing is truck-friendly and accounts for truck dimensions, vehicle weight, number of trailers, etc. The tool also optimizes routes based on road attributes and conditions including truck restrictions, bridge heights, hazardous material restrictions and traffic. The app features live turn-by-turn navigation with lane assist, and audible guidance on upcoming turns, so drivers can safely stay focused on the road and traffic conditions around them.
“EROAD’s fleet management solution is focused on giving the driver an easy, reliable experience from capturing logs to doing inspections to completing their work,” said Norm Ellis, President of EROAD North America. “By working with HERE to integrate truck-friendly routing right into daily workflow in EROAD Go, we’re making it easier for drivers to find the best routes, which means safer driving and fewer delays.”
“Our expanded partnership with EROAD will bring new innovations in fleet management and most importantly driver safety, which in turn enhances driver satisfaction. We are really excited to be able to partner on EROAD Go as this solution will empower both business and drivers with real-time feedback such as alerts and traffic conditions and ensure truck drivers have the most optimized routes to travel on,” said Stanmira Koleva, SVP and General Manager APAC at HERE Technologies. “With our complementary strengths in fleet management and location technology, a partnership between HERE and EROAD is a natural fit.”
Please register to attend a webinar co-hosted by EROAD and HERE presenting the EROAD Go+ solution and discussing driver safety and productivity. The webinar is October 8th at 2pm Eastern/11am Pacific.
