During this year’s Regional Run-on-Less www.runonless.com, the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) showcased LinkeDrive’s Geotab integration at a national level. “When we approached the LinkeDrive team, our goal was to not only leverage the Geotab data, but more importantly, present it in a way that visualized what was truly happening on the road every day; their MyDrive daily reporting technology did just that,” shares Mike Roeth, Executive Director at NACFE. “LinkeDrive’s visualizations not only incorporated the Geotab telematics data, but they also mixed in additional third-party data feeds to show some really amazing views that included environmental information, such as weather and terrain. This received an immense amount of positive feedback from the industry and provided a comprehensive picture of what the drivers were facing every day, helping NACFE truly tell the Run-on-Less story, taking our Geotab data to the next level!”
