LEXINGTON, S.C. (Oct. 15, 2019) - Southeastern Freight Lines, a leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, received the title of Analytics Achievers in the 2019 Trimble Ovation Award Best in Data Utilization category.
Presented at the 2019 in.sight user conference + expo, the Ovation Awards celebrate Trimble customers that have best leveraged technology through innovations in integration, custom-tailored applications, process implementation, training methods and more.
Southeastern was recognized for the streamlined migration of its 3,000-vehicle fleet from automatic on-board recording device (AOBRD) driver logs to electronic logging device (ELD) driver logs.
"We are honored to be recognized by Trimble for the second year in a row," said Michael Owings, vice president of corporate services and support for Southeastern Freight Lines. "With the deadline to migrate to ELD approaching, carriers across the nation have been facing this same undertaking. With our dedicated team closely working with Trimble, we were able to effectively measure resource utilization to ensure a smooth transition."
Bill Brown, consultant and retired Manager of Fleet Telematics for Southeastern Freight Lines, accepted the award at the conference, held Sept. 15 - 18 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.
"With Bill's work on the migration, in one three-day period our testing and changes led to a major breakthrough in how we handle malfunction and diagnostics (M&Ds) in our ELD driver logs," added Owings.
