Knight Transportation has chosen the Zonar 2020 Mobile Tablet as the new telematics platform for its fleet. The 2020 is an Android-based tablet and will use Zonar’s telematics platform.

Knight made its decision after a yearlong testing process and went with the Zonar tablet in order to modernize its operations, according to the company. Knight wanted a flexible and portable system for its drivers to stay in touch, improve safety and improve productivity.

“Knight Transportation chose the 2020 because it offers our drivers cutting-edge next generation technology,” said David Jackson, CEO of Knight. “Plus with Zonar’s open platform we have the ability to customize and deploy new applications to further enhance our operations.”

Zonar also offers an EVIR through the platform which allows for simple pre- and post-trip vehicle inspections with a visual inspection option to allow drivers to more efficiently fill out reports.

“We’re thrilled Knight Transportation has chosen Zonar as its new telematics platform,” said Brett Brinton, president and CEO of Zonar. “With 2020 Mobile Tablet, Knight drivers can submit more accurate logs and stay in touch with company dispatchers more easily, providing the company and shippers greater visibility.”
