Paper Transport, Platform Science collaborate on driver experience

Platform Science, a connected vehicle platform, and Paper Transport, a for-hire truckload carrier and provider of brokerage services, recently announced a new collaboration to bring Platform Science’s innovative technology to Paper Transport’s entire fleet. Platform Science’s transportation solutions make it easier for fleets to develop, deploy, and manage mobile devices and applications on their vehicles.

Each Paper Transport truck will be equipped with a tablet to access Platform Science’s technology platform and catalog of apps, providing powerful tools to enhance driver experience, and allowing Paper Transport’s back office to tap into and capture real-time data to optimize operations.

“Platform Science provides us an in-truck operating system that will prove to be more flexible and responsive to changing business needs and OEM integration,” said Dan Deppeler, vice president of maintenance at Paper Transport. “A critical path forward for PTI is one that is focused on driver workflow. Our singular goal is to utilize Platform Science connections with third-party developers to offer unique driver-based solutions. Life on the road demands a high degree of focus and attention, so making the tablet interaction frictionless will make a hard job a little bit easier.”

Platform Science is expected to roll out to all of Paper Transport’s trucks by the end of 2022.
