EROAD signs multiyear agreement with Andretti Autosport to supply fleet management, ELDs, dashcams and asset tracking for the team’s truck fleet.
PORTLAND, OR – November 17, 2020 – EROAD, a leading global transportation technology services company, today announced a partnership with Andretti Autosport to supply hardware and services to the iconic auto racing team to enable fleet management, compliance, and safety.
Andretti Autosport, based in Indianapolis, Indiana, is led by racing legend Michael Andretti and fields multiple entries in the INDYCAR SERIES, Indy Lights, and GT4 Americas. Also under the Andretti racing umbrella are its Andretti Formula E program and Walkinshaw Andretti United in Australia. The global racing enterprise boasts over 200 total race wins, four IndyCar Series championships, three Indy Lights titles, one Indy Pro 2000 and one USF2000 championship, and has captured victory five times at the famed Indianapolis 500-Mile Race.
Andretti Autosport runs a seven-month season, with its fleet of tractors hauling custom transporters containing racecars and highly specialized parts, tools, and equipment on board. Often crisscrossing the country several times a month and working with precise scheduling, the team is dependent on its logistics operation running smoothly and predictably. With highly visible rigs sporting sponsor brands front to back, adherence to traffic laws, compliance regulations and high safety standards is critical.
”Just like Andretti Autosport, EROAD uses technology to improve performance,” said Rob Edwards, Chief Operating Office of Andretti Autosport. “We are excited to partner with EROAD to better manage our fleet operations, compliance and safety. Reliability and dependability are key for us as we travel from racetrack to racetrack. EROAD has a proven record and is easy to use.”
“Andretti is a name that is synonymous with precision, reliability and winning,” said Norm Ellis, President of EROAD North America. “EROAD strives for those same qualities and we are thrilled to be named the official fleet technology and ELD supplier for Andretti Autosport. We look forward to helping them achieve the same outstanding levels of performance and safety in their logistics and fleet operations that they achieve on the track.”
The Andretti Autosport fleet began using the EROAD solution in October to ensure regulatory compliance as the NTT INDYCAR SERIES trucks headed to St. Petersburg to compete in the re-scheduled Firestone Grand Prix in St. Petersburg as the season finale.
