Qualcomm has announced that Averitt— a truckload, dedicated and LTL service provider— has implemented Qualcomm’s OmniTracs and OmniExpress mobile communications systems across its entire truck fleet.

The installation of OmniExpress systems and OmniTracs units for a combined solution will help improve shipment visibility for logistics planning and reduce time and administration costs for Averitt's customers, Qualcomm said.

OmniExpress system is a terrestrial-based digital wireless fleet management system operating in North American metropolitan areas and main highway corridors. The OmniTracs mobile communications system is a satellite-based wireless fleet management system with coverage throughout North America. Data from the two systems is integrated with Averitt's dispatch, accounting and other operations software.

“Our 3,500 trucks are now always connected at more than 100 locations, including our service centers, dedicated fleet accounts and corporate headquarters via a direct link to Qualcomm's network communications center for complete visibility throughout our company,” said David Henry, director of systems design of Averitt.
