• Gives drivers a more seamless driver workflow via an Electronic Proof of Delivery (ePOD) solution
"Trimble is dedicated to enhancing the final mile delivery experience for fleets, drivers and customers," said Brian Larwig, general manager, Final Mile. "Trimble SmartDelivery enables fleets and drivers to reach new levels of connectivity and efficiency while reducing delivery costs and increasing accuracy, all through one seamless driver workflow."
Trimble SmartDelivery utilizes single sign-on capabilities to take drivers from start to finish on their routes.
