Rand McNally unveils fleet management solutions at UMA Expo

Posted on February 20, 2014

Rand McNally unveiled at the UMA Motorcoach Expo this week e-logs that are compliant with Hours of Service (HOS) regulations specific to the passenger-carrier market as part of it mobile fleet management solutions.

Motorcoach HOS is available on Rand McNally’s TPC 7600, a full featured in-cab mobile computing device; the TND 760, a one-box, one-cable mobile fleet management device; and the HD 100, a small black box about the size of a deck of cards designed to pair with tablets, phones and the company’s IntelliRoute TND 720 GPS device to create a mobile fleet management solution.

“The bus/motorcoach transportation industry faces regulatory and operational challenges similar to over-the-road commercial transportation fleets,” said Steve Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally. “It was a natural extension of our efforts in the commercial transportation market to develop a solution that meets the specific requirements for passenger-carrying drivers as well. Now motorcoach companies have access to  the compliance and safety benefits of mobile fleet management, cost reduction due to automation of tasks, navigation specific to larger vehicles, and monitoring of vehicle and driver behavior for maintenance and training.”
