Cargo Transporters Inc. has introduced two new features for its driveCT mobile app for drivers. The additions address two important areas identified by drivers: trailer locating and online (remote) safety training.
The driveCT app’s new Find The Trailer feature allows drivers to quickly locate trailers. By simply entering a trailer number they can find the location of a unit in the carrier’s lot and at customer locations, including large distribution centers. During relay operations, the capability allows a driver to map how far a trailer is from an exchange point.
On the driveCT app, drivers can now access online training provided by Instructional Technologies Inc. (ITI). The courses in the ITI PRO-TREAD library that are assigned to drivers cover a range of safety and seasonal topics and can be based on analysis of areas where instruction is needed.
Eleos Technologies, the app provider to Cargo Transporters, enabled the new features of driveCT. The time saving ability to toggle between tractor and trailer locations is driven by information from Omnitracs in-cab systems and SkyBitz and ORBCOMM trailer tracking technologies.
