Cargo Transporters transforms its fleet with virtual vehicle technology from Platform Science
Cargo Transporters will equip its fleet with Platform Science’s Virtual VehicleⓇ, which was developed in collaboration with Daimler Truck North America. Virtual Vehicle is the first open OEM platform that enables fleets to access telematics, software solutions, real-time vehicle data and third-party applications directly from their vehicles. This allows fleet operators to make changes to their software solutions without having to modify the telematics hardware inside the truck.
“Cargo Transporters has a long history as an innovation leader, and we are proud to partner with them to elevate their fleet capabilities,” said Luc Wachtel, Senior Vice President, Transportation and Logistics, Platform Science. “We are powering the future of logistics by delivering choice, configurability and simplicity to drivers and fleet operators. Working together, Cargo is now able to deliver a seamless driver experience while deploying a diverse set of virtual applications chosen from a market of both Platform Science and its partners provided solutions.”
Cargo Transporters has a fleet of state-of-the-art semi-trailers and specializes in transporting dry vans, full truck loads in contract, dedicated or expedited mode, with intrastate and interstate common and contractual authority of 48 states.
“We always strive to provide our drivers with the best tools to make their jobs easier while leveraging data in our back-office applications,” said John Pope, President of Cargo Transporters. “Platform Science provides the technology solutions we need and provides the flexibility to customize the driver workflow experience. The Virtual Vehicle platform is ideal for our fleet, which is 100% Freightliner, and we are delighted to equip our trucks with this advanced capability.”
