GREEN BAY, Wis., Sept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Schneider (NYSE: SNDR), an industry leader in transportation and logistics services, has announced its deployment of Platform Science, an enterprise IoT telematics platform.
The product suite provides Schneider the flexibility to quickly and easily deploy new applications and services that responds to ever-changing compliance requirements, while matching its unique operational profiles and greatly increasing the quality of the driver experience.
Schneider revolutionized trucking more than 30 years ago by implementing the very first generation of vehicle telematics with in-cab satellite communications. Today, Schneider continues that tradition of forward thinking with the selection of Platform Science as its provider for next generation telematics innovation. The decision illustrates Schneider's commitment to improving driver experience and its mission to innovate at a pace never seen before. Schneider will use Platform Science's driver-friendly ELD, and leverage the platform to deploy any apps and services that improve operations, whether developed internally, by Platform Science or by third-party developers.
"Schneider has always been committed to operational excellence and identifying opportunities to use and create new technology. Our work with Platform Science allows us to immediately improve the driver experience, enhance efficiency and productivity, and provide the tools to future proof our telematics capability in an industry that needs speed to market more than ever," says Mark Rourke, Schneider CEO.
Through tens of thousands of hours working side-by-side with drivers, compliance teams, back office staff and third-party developers, Platform Science has incorporated real-world operator experience and influence into the design of its platform. The result is a first-of-its kind set of applications and tools for transportation and logistics companies and those that seek to better serve them through technology.
The Platform Science solution, comprised of a Connected Vehicle Device (CVD) for data, a web portal for fleet managers and mobile devices for drivers, is now being installed throughout Schneider's fleet, which is responsible for moving 9.3 million freight miles per day.
"Platform Science is thrilled to work with Schneider on the launch of our fleet management technology. They are the perfect partner to support our vision of enabling fleets to improve drivers' lives, improve efficiency of their operations and to rapidly innovate on their own technology vision. We look forward to seeing how Schneider will use and innovate on the platform to address their unique needs," said Jack Kennedy, CEO at Platform Science.
