Volvo Trucks enters partnership with Omnitracs

Volvo Trucks North America and Omnitracs have agreed in principal to form a partnership that would allow them to develop future fleet management services for customers.

The agreement allows the leveraging of Volvo’s Remote Diagnostics telematics-based proactive diagnostic and repair planning system to offer solutions that help fleets run their businesses more effectively.

“Volvo’s integrated telematics capabilities are key to our industry-leading uptime services, but they also provide customers more options for powerful and cost-effective fleet management services,” Conal Deedy, Volvo Trucks director of connected vehicle services, said. “This relationship with Omnitracs will advance our connected vehicle strategy by opening the door to another leading provider of services to help our customers run their businesses more efficiently.”

Fleet management services provide trucking operations with vital information on their assets and operation, such as vehicle location, vehicle and driver performance data, regulatory compliance and more, allowing fleets to control costs, improve customer service and increase safety.

“By joining forces, Volvo and Omnitracs can deliver even more customer value than what the two leaders in their fields can accomplish independently,” Richard Glasmann, Omnitracs vice president of original equipment manufacturer strategy, sales and marketing, said. “The two companies make for great partners, as they share a passion for efficiency, productivity, safety and up time.”
