A.N. Webber is a great example of Teletrac Navman's work. A.N. Webber, transportation, logistics, and warehousing company wanted a new fleet management solution that would enable quick and effective communication with drivers. The company selected Teletrac Navman’s platform that not only provides GPS location and vehicle operational data, but also includes in-cab computers that allow dispatchers and drivers to exchange two-way messages. “Having access to more detail about how the trucks are being used, has allowed us to reduce idling and fuel consumptions and provide better information delivery for our customers,” says Rob Koch, Vice president of operations at A.N. Webber. It also has automated monitoring of driver hours-of-service (HOS) logs, which has reduced paperwork, data entry, and HOS violations for the company. “With a deployment of new fleet management solution, Transportation firm A.N. Webber has decreased idling by 15 to 20 percent,” says Flores.

The company's mission is to address cross-market problems based on the growing demand for integrated fleet data.
