Mack Trucks and Volvo Trucks North America have entered into a memorandum of understanding with Samsara to work on integrated connectivity solutions. The truck makers will work with Samsara to investigate providing an all-encompassing, single-source telematics service, including compliance services, cameras, trailer sensors, safety, maintenance services, and more available via Samsara’s platform.
Samsara’s portfolio of Internet of THings solutions combines hardware, software and cloud to bring real-time visibility, analytics and artificial intelligence to fleet operations. Samsara serves more than 15,000 customers across a range of industries, including transportation and logistics, field services, energy, construction, and more.
“We look forward to working with Samsara and their unique data systems,” said Conal Deedy, director of customer productivity solutions, Volvo Trucks North America. “This opportunity allows us to explore how our customers can leverage Samsara’s integrated solutions for more efficient fleet management.”
“We are pleased to be working with Samsara and their unique approach to analyzing data,” said David Pardue, vice president of connected vehicles and uptime services for Mack Trucks. “Through our planned collaboration, we will investigate how Mack customers can benefit from their integrated fleet management solutions.”
Details regarding specific offerings to be developed have not yet been finalized.
“With a number of Mack vehicles currently on the Samsara platform, we’re thrilled about this opportunity to examine how to make their embedded telematics data even more seamlessly integrated,” said Rushil Goel, vice president and general manager, fleet management at Samsara. “Through this MOU, we hope to provide fleet managers and drivers with a more holistic understanding of their data and in turn, operate a safer and more efficient fleet.”
