Motorcity Systems, an innovative software and integration solutions provider for trucking companies, announces that Des Moines, Iowa-based fuel hauler Solar Transport has chosen Motorcity’s TORQUE integration platform and real-time driver communications and visibility app, RELAY, to improve operational efficiency and the driver experience.
TORQUE is a flexible, cloud-based integration platform that enables carriers to efficiently connect and scale their business systems as they grow and evolve. With TORQUE, Solar Transport has integrated operational data and workflows between its Transportation Management System (TMS), ELD telematics, workflow and RELAY dispatch-driver messaging application.
As part of the TORQUE deployment, Solar Transport’s driver hours-of-service duty status and vehicle telematics data from Samsara is integrated with its RELAY dispatch-driver messaging platform from Motorcity. The integration gives dispatchers better visibility of mission-critical operational, safety and compliance information.
Partnering with Motorcity Systems is part of Solar Transport’s ongoing strategy to invest in technology that delivers greater productivity and efficiency while improving the overall driver experience.
“We began looking for a solution to help us deliver better information to fleet managers and drivers in a faster and more effective way. For example, we wanted to make our customer site maps easily accessible by drivers to assist with pickups and deliveries,” said Jason Jones, Director of Technology and Business Solutions at Solar. “In Motorcity we found a partner who could quickly bring our data together from different systems, and make it move seamlessly to where it needs to be, when we need it.”
As Co-Founder and President of Motorcity Systems, Bob Stemple set out, with a group of experienced industry professionals, to improve how various transportation systems and solutions are connected to share data. This led to the development of the TORQUE solution.
“We are extremely proud to announce Solar Transport as a new customer on our TORQUE platform,” Stemple said. “We look forward to bringing our solutions to other leading transportation and logistics providers who specialize in fuel delivery.”
