Why Trucking Navigation Needs a Reboot

Wednesday, October 12, 2016 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Times have changed; big data is everywhere. If your drivers have ever found themselves frustrated with outdated mapping or loss of navigation signal, they aren’t alone. Lucky for fleets, drivers aren’t the only ones convinced there’s got to be a better way.

Join Omnitracs and Maverick Transportation on October 12th for an in-depth look into why traditional navigation technology has hit a dead end, and how drivers themselves, their feedback, and the big data they’re generating every haul greenlights the kind of mapping innovation that not only keeps pace but stays ahead of trucking’s needs.
