PeopleNet, a Trimble Company and leading provider of fleet mobility technology, recently announced that Crestwood Transportation LLC will install PeopleNet Mobile Gateway (PMG) paired with PeopleNet ConnectedTablets, and in-cab ticket printing capabilities in its fleet.
Crestwood selected these PeopleNet solutions to improve the in-cab experience for drivers by integrating with existing software from PeopleNet sister company, Trimble’s TMW business, for one streamlined interface to access dispatch, scanning, and both crude and tanker workflow applications, ultimately creating efficiencies for the back office.
“We are pleased to partner with Crestwood to optimize operations for both drivers and support staff,” said Bryan Coyne, General Manager, Trimble Transportation Mobility, North America. “By implementing PeopleNet technologies to create efficiencies, Crestwood will be able to improve their drivers’ experience, streamline operations and reduce overall costs.”
