Rand McNally has been chosen by Aramexto help optimize the organization's fleet performance. The global logistics and delivery company is rolling out the solution to 11 locations in the Middle East and North Africa region, with plans to expand the program in coming months.
Aramex said it chose the Rand McNally Fleet platform due to the solution's "API-first" architecture. The platform is device-agnostic and supports multiple asset types, which was what Aramex said it needed with its varied vehicle fleet that includes vans, motorcycles, trucks, and warehouse vehicles, among others.
"Aramex's requirements are a prime example of why our platform works for diverse customers across the globe and across the supply chain," said Jakub Felinski, Rand McNally Fleet's chief technology officer. "The connected vehicle solution we offer enables a single platform for fleets from long-haul and local trucking to government and rental fleets, to OEMs. And it doesn't matter if a fleet's vehicles are fuel-based, EV, or mixed."
The deal with Aramex includes Rand McNally supplied hardware, a driver app and manager app, and a customized web portal from which managers can track vehicles and driver metrics. The hardware is a mixture of OBDII plug-in devices as well as hard-wired equipment for two-wheeled and older vehicles that don't have OBDII ports.
"Aramex continues to leverage the latest innovative technologies and solutions to further enhance our operational efficiencies and deliver exceptional service to our customers," said Alaa Saoudi, COO for Express at Aramex. "By implementing the Rand McNally fleet management solution, we gain valuable insights that we can use to make our fleet safer and more productive. The streamlined data collection and management also enables us to further optimize our fuel costs, boost efficiencies, and enhance customer experience."
