PeopleNet has announced a new integration with McLeod LoadMaster that inserts fuel stops in the driver¹s route to optimize fuel purchases and consumption and curb out-of-route fuel expense. It’s said to be an industry first.

It’s an automated approach to controlling fuel costs, enabling dispatch to create routes with fuel stops that ensure optimum consumption and driver efficiency and safety.

Carriers equipped with PeopleNet Tabletor BLU onboard computers that run Automated Workflow and In-Cab Navigation, McLeod dispatch software, and a fuel-optimization package can automatically insert in the driver¹s dispatch fuel stops that optimize routing and reduce out-of-route miles. Spoken directions help drivers execute routes and fleet managers can easily confirm and track fuel-stop arrival/departure.
