The new integration partnership with Platform Science will give Stevens’ fleet the ability to deploy, develop, and manage its apps and devices through one centralized platform, enabling it to leverage technology to increase efficiencies in trip planning and overall driver productivity, according to the two companies.
The Platform Science rollout was expected to commence this month.
“Stevens Transport is constantly looking to the future, making them a perfect partner for us,” said Michael Bray, CCO of Platform Science, a leading connected vehicle platform. “Not only do they value technology, but they value their drivers and strive to find new ways to optimize the overall experience.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Stevens Transport team to ensure their unique needs are met and that they have all necessary tools to set themselves and their drivers up for success.”
Stevens chose Platform Science for its next-generation telematics solution, flexibility, and trip-planning services, such as its partnerships with industry leaders like Trimble Maps and Drivewyze, the companies said. In particular, the fleet will leverage the Trimble Maps’ MileOn integration to provide drivers with highly accurate navigation and seamless trip planning to keep deliveries on track, while ultimately improving customer service.
“We are always on the lookout for new technologies that meet our fleets’ evolving needs,” said Clay Aaron, president of Stevens Transport. “Through this partnership with Platform Science, we can ensure our drivers are equipped with the most efficient, up-to-date technology that significantly increases their productivity levels and maximizes their time.
“We are proud to join Platform Science in its ongoing mission to make transportation smart.”
