TAMPA, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pegasus TransTech, a leader in enterprise mobility, telematics, and
business process automation for the transportation industry, announced
today that it has reached another telematics milestone by signing
Texas-based 1845 Oil Field Services, one of the largest proppant
transportation, freight management, and logistics companies in North
With its selection of Transflo Telematics, 1845 is deploying electronic
logging devices (ELDs) throughout its fleet. Hundreds of fleet drivers
and owner-operators will use these ELD-equipped trucks to move millions
of pounds of sand and other oil field materials in and out of client
sites. Drivers will simply manage logs and receive communications
through Transflo’s industry-leading mobile solution.
“Oil field logistics is a very dynamic area of the transportation
industry,” shared Chad Hall, VP of Safety and Compliance at 1845 Oil
Field Services. “To plan and coordinate large-scale projects in remote
locations, we were looking for real-time visibility of our fleet.
Transflo is helping us do that with map-based GPS and reporting
capabilities, and we’re already seeing great results.”
Installing new software and hardware well ahead of the Federal Motor
Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) December deadline, 1845 achieves
an early start to both Texas intrastate and federal interstate
compliance. The company has implemented the full enterprise telematics
version of the product, which provides electronic logs plus vehicle
analytics, maintenance notifications, and advanced reporting with
driving pattern insights.
“It’s exciting to see the safety and compliance results that 1845 is
achieving,” said Frank Adelman, President and Chief Executive Officer of
Pegasus TransTech. “Their focus on next-generation telematics technology
demonstrates their strategic vision and further positions them as a
leader in the oil field services space. They have a keen understanding
of the supply chain.”
Commercial drivers at 1845 will save time and reduce paperwork on each
log. The FMCSA estimates that companies can save $705 or more per driver
each year by eliminating paper logs, submissions, and filings. In
addition to the ELD and telematics reporting, 1845 is using Transflo
Mobile to deliver customized training to drivers, who will receive video
updates and messages from the fleet and access Transflo’s video library.
