IoT platform enhances driver experience and provides unprecedented level of flexibility
Dallas, TX, September 14, 2021 – Stevens Transport, the largest refrigerated trucking company in Texas and North America’s premier multi-modal, temperature-controlled transportation and logistics company, today announced a partnership with Platform Science, a leading connected vehicle platform, to roll out its open IoT technology to Steven Transport’s fleet of over 2000 trucks. With the integration of Platform Science, which gives fleets the ability to deploy, develop and manage its apps and devices through one centralized platform, Stevens Transport will leverage the technology to increase its efficiencies for trip planning and overall driver productivity.
“Stevens Transport is constantly looking to the future, making them a perfect partner for us,” said Michael Bray, CCO of Platform Science. “Not only do they value technology, but they value their drivers and strive to find new ways to optimize the overall experience. We are thrilled to partner with the Stevens Transport team to ensure their unique needs are met and that they have all necessary tools to set themselves and their drivers up for success.”
Stevens Transport chose Platform Science for its next-generation telematics solution, flexibility and trip planning services, such as its partnerships with industry leaders like Trimble Maps and Drivewyze. In particular, the fleet will leverage the Trimble Maps’ MileOn integration to provide drivers with highly accurate navigation and seamless trip planning to keep deliveries on track, while ultimately improving customer service.
“We are always on the lookout for new technologies that meet our fleets’ evolving needs. Through this partnership with Platform Science, we can ensure our drivers are equipped with the most efficient, up-to-date technology that significantly increases their productivity levels and maximizes their time,” said Clay Aaron, President of Stevens Transport. “We are proud to join Platform Science in its ongoing mission to make transportation smart.”
Steven Transport will begin to roll out the Platform Science solution to its entire fleet starting September 2021.
