Mack, Volvo bringing remote diagnostics to older trucks
LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Mack and Volvo announced at the American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition, deals with telematics provider Geotab that will bring remote diagnostics to older vehicles.
“We are pleased to sign this agreement with Geotab because it will offer Mack customers who previously did not have access to data and services the ability to be connected,” said David Pardue, Mack vice-president of connected vehicles and uptime services. “Customers with Mack vehicles not already equipped with GuardDog Connect now will have the opportunity to utilize proven connected services to enhance fleet operations.”
“The partnership with Geotab offers customers not currently connected the ability to access data not previously available to them,” said Conal Deedy, director of connected services for Volvo Trucks. “The easy accessibility of this information will enable customers to make informed decisions to enhance uptime, productivity, fuel efficiency, compliance and safety.”
Specific details of the agreements have not yet been released.
