Mack Trucks was awarded the 2015 Commercial Vehicle Maker of the Year Award by TU-Automotive at the TU-Automotive Detroit Awards ceremony in Novi, Mich.
Mack was recognized for its Mack GuardDog Connect integrated telematics and Mack Fleet Management Services.
“Mack is honored to have been selected as the TU-Automotive Commercial Vehicle Maker of the Year,” said David Pardue, Mack vice president of aftermarket business development. “Our groundbreaking approach to telematics and data integration is enabling our customers to effectively and efficiently manage their operations and improve vehicle uptime.”
GuardDog Connect is a diagnostic and repair planning solution that monitors critical fault codes on a vehicle. GuardDog Connect is available and standard in Mack Granite, Pinnacle, Titan by Mack and TerraPro vehicles and is currently in use in 25,000 Mack models.
Mack Fleet Management Services combines data from the integrated GuardDog Connect telematics hardware with cloud-based software to help fleet owners improve operational performance, reduce costs and increase safety.
