LAS VEGAS - For the first time, America's Road Team will be using electronic logs in the American Trucking Associations' Interstate One truck.
This is the first time that the high-tech image tractor-trailer will use an electronic log. The national public outreach program is designed to educate the public about highway safety and the trucking industry.
XRS Corp. installed its Turnpike solution in ATA's Interstate One during the ATA Management Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas, this week, where the America's Road Team captains also received training on the device.
Turnpike is a technologically advanced, low-cost, easy-to-install solution that runs on drivers' existing cell phones, smartphones and tablet computers. Turnpike will run on Motorola Xyboard for the America's Road Team Captains. Interstate One's exterior will feature ATA and XRS logos, as well as logos of other premier sponsors.
Interstate One, the ATA Image Trailer, travels the United States visiting state capitols, high schools, community events and more. The 53-foot custom drop deck show trailer, fully wrapped in an American flag themed graphic, features a mobile conference room with seven projection screens, educational displays and a truck-driving simulator.
America's Road Team Captains, elite professional truck drivers with millions of miles of accident-free driving, take a few days each month to meet with the motoring public, the news media, students, transportation officials and government, business and community leaders to demonstrate the trucking industry's commitment to safety and serve as the industry's ambassadors.
