Convoy, the nations most efficient digital freight network, and KeepTruckin, the leader in fleet management technology, today announced a new technology partnership to help carriers simplify daily tasks and grow their businesses. Convoy will integrate with KeepTruckins freight visibility API to access location data for en-route shipmentsgenerated by consenting carriers in its network who use KeepTruckins Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs)to provide additional visibility and eliminate the need for additional driver check-in calls. Carriers will have total control and must consent for their data to be shared between the two companies.

Convoy relies on its industry leading mobile app to track the location of a load. Carriers on a Convoy shipment turn on their mobile app prior to pick up, enabling GPS to identify their location throughout the trip and communicate progress towards an on-time delivery. However, if the carriers mobile phone loses battery or if they enter an area with poor cell reception, GPS is unable to send precise location information to Convoys platform, requiring check-ins with the carrier to confirm the estimated arrival time.

Convoy and KeepTruckins freight visibility integration will provide a secondary location proof point to augment Convoys shipment tracking capabilities, using data from the carrier’s KeepTruckin ELD. As a result, carriers in Convoys network who consent to share KeepTruckin data with Convoy will benefit from enhanced shipment tracking eliminating check-in calls, and gaining the ability to manage their Convoy integration easily through the KeepTruckin platform.

This partnership also lowers costs for carriers by offering a 15% discount on KeepTruckins ELDs and other fleet management technology. KeepTruckins Electronic Logbook App and ELD system have more than half a million users nationwide. When compared to other fleet management vendors, carriers can use the newly offered discount to save up to $1,000 per year on each truck in their fleet.

We are excited to kick off a strategic, multifaceted partnership with a fellow industry leader in KeepTruckin, starting with the integration of their freight visibility API and offering discounts on critical fleet management products, said Brooks McMahon, VP of Partnerships at Convoy. Ensuring carriers in our network have access to high-quality ELD devices, and powerful fleet management tools at reasonable pricing is core to our commitment to help carriers earn more with less hassle.

At KeepTruckin, we have a relentless focus on driver experienceits in our DNA, said Jairam Ranganathan, SVP of Product at KeepTruckin. Were excited to create a best-in-class experience for carriers in Convoys network that gives them complete control over their data. We envision many opportunities in the weeks and months ahead to help carriers leverage their data to grow their businesses with a platform theyre already using to be compliant and with information that is already being generated. Now drivers can use that data for a competitive advantagewithout any additional work besides opting in to eliminate headaches, access more load opportunities, and make more money.

Carriers can access the exclusive discount here.
