“We are excited to be working with Volvo Trucks to explore unique solutions for our fleet customers to reduce equipment downtime and improve efficiencies through increased insight of asset performance and service history,” said Bryn Fosburgh, president of Trimble Transportation Enterprise.
Specific details of the offerings to be developed by the parties under the proposed collaboration have not yet been finalized.
