1845 Oil Field Services adopts Transflo Telematics

Pegasus TransTech, a provider of enterprise mobility, telematics, and business process automation for the transportation industry, 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 America, the company said.

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.

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.

Commercial drivers at 1845 will save time and reduce paperwork on each log. The FMCSA estimates that companies can save USD 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.
