TAMPA, Fla. — Transflo, a mobile, telematics and business process automation provider to the transportation industry, is now offering the digital ecosystem called Transflo Bundle+, a suite of features helps truck fleets and drivers manage efficiency and compliance directly from their mobile devices.

The Transflo Bundle+ extends the capabilities of Transflo Mobile+ to include ELD compliance, weigh station bypass, fleet navigation and unlimited scanning.

“Fully integrating these features with Transflo Mobile+ and offering them in one package deepens our commitment to helping users stay connected and manage their business with powerful telematics, mobile devices, and cloud-based applications,” said Marketing Director Don Mitchell.

The Transflo Bundle+ includes several features that take advantage of Transflo’s T-Series telematics and GPS-based vehicle tracking device from Geotab to improve fleet and driver compliance including:

  • Electronic logs. The Transflo T-Series ELD is connected to both the vehicle and Transflo Mobile+ on the driver’s mobile device. Drivers can access everything they need to stay productive and in compliance with Hours of Service rules on one app, including electronic records of duty status, notification of remaining drive time, and real-time communications with dispatch.
  • Weigh station bypass. The Transflo Bundle+ includes Drivewyze, North America’s largest weigh station bypass service, which helps fleets and drivers save time and money by providing bypasses at more than 750 sites in 44 states and provinces. Drivewyze is integrated with the Transflo Mobile+ app and requires no special transponder or hardware.
  • Fleet navigation. With CoPilot Truck navigation integrated into Transflo Mobile, drivers can simply connect with the industry’s best navigation system right from the main menu. Fleets and driver instantly see savings by reducing out-of-route miles and avoiding fines with truck-legal routing. The new integration also steers drivers away from low bridges and truck-restricted roads with the help of PC* MILER’s routing technology.
  • Vehicle inspections. Transflo’s electronic Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIR) let drivers complete and submit pre- and post-trip inspections right from their mobile device running Transflo Mobile+, which saves time, reduces the risk of paperwork errors, and helps fleets respond to reports as soon as possible.

Mitchell said Transflo’s Bundle+ plan includes no upfront hardware costs for fleets of 26 trucks or more and lifetime upgrades and warranty on ELD hardware. Plus, drivers get access features that streamline their entire day including unlimited mobile document scanning.

COSTA MESA, Cali. — Agility Fuel Solutions and XStream Trucking have announced that Agility will be the exclusive distributor of Xstream’s TruckWings aerodynamic systems for compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks in North America. Agility will also distribute TruckWings on a non-exclusive basis to the diesel truck market.

The patented TruckWings design incorporates folding panels made of impact-resistant, glass-reinforced composites attached to the rear sides and roof of the cab that automatically swing out to close the cab-to-trailer gap at highway speeds and retract against the rear of the cab at lower speeds to leave room for turning maneuvers.

“TruckWings is the first device which completely solves the turbulence problem created by the open area between the tractor and trailer that contributes significantly to a truck’s overall aerodynamic drag,” said Daniel Burrows, XStream Trucking’s founder and CEO. “We are pleased to now partner with Agility to offer TruckWings as a factory option for CNG trucks in North America.”

Agility, a business area of Hexagon Composites ASA, and XStream Trucking have previously partnered to provide TruckWings systems for over 750 CNG trucks used by major fleet operators. Agility’s leadership in providing clean fuel solutions for commercial vehicles coupled with its extensive customer base and value-added aftermarket services will expand XStream’s TruckWings solution to reach the growing CNG truck market throughout North America.

“Agility’s trucking fleet customers are focused on fuel cost savings and on increasing the fuel economy of their CNG trucks. TruckWings are a great answer to this problem, as we’ve demonstrated in real-world use with some of our major fleet customers,” said Eric Bippus, Agility’s senior vice president of global sales and marketing. “We are very pleased to enter into this distribution agreement and to continue to work with XStream Trucking to deliver clean and efficient transportation solutions for the North American trucking market.”
