According to Qualcomm, its new Mobile Computing Platform 110 (MCP110) will become the fleet management system of choice for Nationwide Express. Shelby, TN-based Nationwide is an asset-based provider of irregular route truckload services; contract equipment; drivers and maintenance; warehousing and distribution services; and land, rail, air and sea transportation services.
Nationwide participated in trials of the new system and was pleased with operation savings related to the MCP110, according to the firm’s president..
“MCP110’s PDF viewer, on-board tutorials and in-cab scanning and printing capability contribute to improved information sharing and operational efficiency, both of which helped solidify our decision to adopt the solution,” said David Coffey, president of Nationwide Express.
“Our drivers like the new, high-resolution Driver Interface Unit and, from a safety perspective, we’re very impressed with the in-motion user interface,” he continued, “which allows drivers to keep their eyes on the road while the tractor is moving.”
MCP110 operates using terrestrial communication, with the option to upgrade to terrestrial plus WiFi communication. With Wi-Fi-enabled communication, customers can access static content on both the Internet and web-based email programs, as well as scan documents over the WiFi network without paying a per page charge.
