Integration provides a complete mobile solution that improves logistics and operations for farmers, shippers and drivers
Princeton, N.J. – November 7, 2016 – ALK Technologies, a Trimble Company and global leader in GeoLogistics® solutions and navigation software, today announced that Delta Valley Ag LLC has incorporated ALK's routing, mileage, mapping and navigation solutions into its AgLoads™ mobile application. Delta Valley Ag provides agriculture industry professionals with innovative solutions to simplify the workday of agribusinesses and farmers with easy-to-use technology.
"Logistics execution is the foundation for business growth and success in the agriculture industry. AgLoads wants to disrupt the current inefficiency and disorganization of today's processes with a simple, easy-to-use app that provides customers with more time to focus on the bottom line," said Chris Spurlock, Co-founder and CEO, Delta Valley Ag.
To achieve the goal of streamlining efficiency for farmers, shippers and drivers across the complete agriculture supply chain, the AgLoads mobile dispatch application features:
- ALK® Maps with PC*MILER® Web Services for route planning with commercial vehicle routing and restrictions and high-quality map visualization for real-time fleet tracking and load assignment
- CoPilot® Truck™ in-cab navigation, for safe, commercial vehicle specific voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions
By combining ALK Maps with Delta Valley’s AgLoads, farmers can visualize loads and grade information (including test weight and moisture levels) as well as receive precise estimated times of arrival of trucks, while shippers can view their fleet location information, all in real-time. To assist large and small truck fleet drivers, as well as owner/operators, CoPilot Truck offers reliable, paperless on board navigation with map data stored directly on the device, allowing for constant access to routing and mapping in any out of coverage area.
“Smart planning and efficient operations in farming is vital to business productivity and success,” said Dan Popkin, senior vice president, enterprise solutions, ALK Technologies. “Our routing, mapping, and navigation features and functionality can be applied across various industries, and we are excited to integrate with Delta Valley Ag who is offering an innovative mobile dispatch application built specifically for agriculture.”
Built on the same source of commercial map data, ALK Maps and CoPilot Truck generate the same optimized routes for both the dispatcher and the driver, ensuring consistency between the planned and driven routes. The AgLoads application can be set with pre-defined and custom commercial vehicle routing profiles based on vehicle size and class to ensure safety and compliance during planning and execution.
