The tracking, reefer monitoring and in-cab fleet management system from Blue Tree Systems is now compatible with pickups, vans and other light-duty commercial vehicles, according to the company. Blue Tree’s R:COM fleet management system provides remote temperature control, hour-of-service management, driver performance analysis and fuel-use monitoring, as well as in-cab communications, satellite navigation and vehicle tracking.

“After consultation with various fleet operators we identified the demand to extend our system to be compatible with pick-up trucks and other smaller vehicle types,” said Mark Whitney, product development manager at Blue Tree. “Reducing fuel costs, improving driver performance and optimizing fleet deployment are just as crucial to operators of fleets of smaller vehicles for increasing profitability and customer satisfaction as they are to larger truck and trailer fleets.”

 The company also recently announced the availability of a new HOS management feature at no cost to current users of R:COM.
