PeopleNet in partnership with Microdea Inc has introduced In-Cab Scanning for the transportation industry. This new function provides the capability to scan and transmit documents directly from the cab of a truck using the technology of Microdea and the power and bandwidth of PeopleNet mobile communications.

In-Cab Scanning lets drivers scan and transmit transportation documents such as bills of lading and signed delivery receipts immediately from virtually anywhere. It speeds the business cycle for carriers, eliminates the need for truckstop scanning, and expedites international border crossings.

Microdea supplies a small-footprint scanning device securely mounted in the truck cab. Scanned document images are transmitted using the open interface of PeopleNet's g3 Services and are captured by Microdea, which makes documents immediately available to third parties.
