Navistar International Corporation has introduced new service and connectivity initiatives in an effort to simplify the vehicle maintenance process to ensure improved uptime and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).
Navistar says its International 360 platform creates seamless communication with dealers throughout the service process, supports all-makes fleets and integrates vehicle data from more than 24 telematics service providers through OnCommand Connection, Navistar’s open-architecture all-makes remote diagnostics system.
Navistar’s latest offering for maintenance management is Advanced Preventive Maintenance, a set of solutions designed to leverage connected vehicle data to generate specific recommended preventive maintenance intervals customized for each vehicle in a fleet, Navistar says. The company says the solution helps fleets make decisions regarding preventive maintenance scheduling.

The company celebrated the one-year anniversary of its partnership with Love’s Travel Stops and Speedco Feb. 24, which the company says has been “instrumental in multiplying the number of bays and qualified technicians to provide service.”
Navistar says this partnership created the commercial transportations industry’s largest service network and expanded Navistar’s International Truck service network to more than 1,000 sites in North America.
Navistar says the two companies have collaborated on 135 educational hours of comprehensive online and hands-on training for more than 1,000 Love’s and Speedco technicians. More than 35 of those training hours are dedicated exclusively to instruction on International Truck models.
