Safe Fleet acquires FleetMind Solutions Inc.

Posted on June 6, 2016

Safe Fleet has announced the acquisition of Montreal-based FleetMind Solutions Inc.

FleetMind delivers the waste industry’s leading “smart truck” solution — onboard computing systems that enable waste and recycling fleets to link their drivers and vehicles to business operations in real-time to ensure improved safety, productivity, sustainability and customer service. FleetMind solutions have been successfully installed in thousands of refuse collection vehicles across North America, providing unprecedented real-time information to drivers and dispatchers about a truck’s load-weight, route status, service completion, vehicular telemetry, driver activities and more.

As a result, FleetMind-powered fleets enjoy optimized safety, total visibility into route progress, greater driver accountability, improved customer service, and vastly improved fuel efficiencies.

FleetMind will maintain both the operations out of its Montreal headquarters and its regional representation throughout North America. Co-owners, Martin Demers, CEO, and Martin Lord, CTO, will continue their leadership roles as VPs within the Safe Fleet organization.

FleetMind is the company’s fourth acquisition in the video and telematics sector, an area of rapid growth for Safe Fleet.

Financial terms of the purchase were not disclosed.
