Refrigerated carrier Stevens Transport will install Qualcomm’s Mobile Computing Platform 200 (MCP200) across its entire fleet of approximately 2,000 tractors. MCP200 incorporates the Qualcomm hours-of-service electronic onboard recorder (EOBR) application to automate driver logs, and performance monitoring to record critical vehicle and driver performance that affect fuel consumption.
“With the adoption of Qualcomm’s MCP200 and many of our key applications, Stevens Transport will be able to better optimize its fleet operations by leveraging important analytics and critical business information to increase productivity, run more loaded miles and generate more revenue, all while providing its customers with the best possible shipping experience,” said Norm Ellis, vice president of sales, services & marketing at Qualcomm Enterprise Services. “We are committed to providing our customers with smooth, comprehensively managed operations that ultimately ensure success for their own customers.”
Also included in the MCP200 solution is Qualcomm’s circle of service workflow that will integrate with Stevens’ dispatch software to automate functions such as load assignments, work process forms, and other task required by drivers at each stop. In-cab navigation with turn-by-turn directions and accurate routing to reduce out-of-route miles and media manager, which allows for the delivery of audio and video messages and pdf documents to individual drivers, a group of drivers, or the entire fleet.
“Qualcomm is one of the most experienced providers in the industry as evidenced by its impressive track record of technology innovation and customer service,” said Scott Mellman, director of logistics at Stevens Transport. “When it came to choosing the right solution for our business, Qualcomm’s MCP200—and its industry-leading applications—was the proper technology investment for our business model and will play a critical role in our ongoing success by creating access to the best solutions available for our fleets today,”
