GeoLogic Solutions announced that Birmingham, AL-based Southern Cal Transport has renewed its service agreement with the company and will upgrade the fleet’s 400 MobileMax mobile communications and fleet management systems with GeoLogic’s new Cingular Wireless GPRS data solution.
“We initially chose the MobileMax system for its highly reliable multi-mode communications capability and lower cost of operation,” said Danny Blalock, Southern Cal vp of operations. “The decision to renew our contract and upgrade to the GPRS-equipped MobileMax units was based on our satisfaction with the performance of both the system and the company.”
Ken Adams, president of Southern Cal, said his company is anticipating improvements in driver retention with the new system, along with better business processes and customer service due to the increased speed and reliability the GPRS will provide in communicating to and from the trucks.
Southern Cal’s fleet includes Southern Cal Transport, a long-haul transcontinental dry van carrier operating from the Southeast to the West Coast, and its Eagle Motor Lines Division, a regional dry van carrier that primarily services customers from the Northeast and Southeast to Florida and select areas in Ohio, Oklahoma and Texas.
