Werner Selects Spireon's FleetLocate Asset & Trailer Intelligence Solution After Successful One-Year Proof of Concept

OMAHA, NE--(Marketwired - Feb 2, 2015) - Werner Enterprises, one of the five largest truckload carriers in the United States, and Spireon Inc., the leading innovator of Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and Business Intelligence Solutions that connect companies to their mobile assets and workforces, today announced an agreement under which Werner will deploy Spireon's FleetLocate Asset & Trailer Intelligence solution. The deployment program includes outfitting all new dry van trailers, as well as an aggressive retrofit program for existing trailers, this year.

Werner's coverage area spans six continents, and the company maintains offices in the United States, Canada, Mexico, China and Australia. Werner's diversified portfolio of transportation services includes dedicated; medium-to-long-haul, regional and local van; expedited; temperature-controlled; and flatbed services. The company's fleet consists of more than 7,000 tractors and nearly 24,000 trailers, which are predominantly dry van trailers.

"Our mission is to deliver value to our customers, business partners and shareholders by providing leading-edge, global supply chain solutions that exceed expectations and promote safety while we remain customer-focused and asset-backed," said Steve Phillips, senior vice president of Fleet Resources at Werner Enterprises. "Our decision to partner with Spireon for trailer intelligence solutions supports that mission. During the one-year proof of concept with Spireon, we experienced a superb level of commitment to our needs, from professional services to onboarding support to installation expertise. Spireon really looked at our business and identified ways we could better utilize our fleet and streamline processes to improve our bottom line."

Spireon's FleetLocate solution provides customers with a highly scalable GPS transportation and logistics solution delivering unprecedented, real-time visibility into their fleet. FleetLocate, powered by Spireon's award-winning NSpire M2M platform, connects fleet owners and managers to the Rich Data, analytics and fleet intelligence that drives:

  • Higher productivity and turns per trailer
  • Automated efficiencies that save time and money and eliminate error
  • Better trailer pool management -- ensuring the right trailer is at the right location at the right time
  • Opportunities to capture more revenue
  • Improved driver satisfaction

"We are extremely proud to be selected by Werner Enterprises as the asset and trailer intelligence solution of choice," said Marc Brungger, CEO of Spireon.
