Aramex Selects Rand McNally's Connected Vehicle Platform
CHICAGO and DUBAI, UAE, June 23, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-The global logistics and delivery giant is deploying the Rand connected 
vehicle platform to optimize performance of its fleet

Rand McNally(https://www.randmcnally.com/), a leader in commercial 
transportation technology solutions, today announced that its connected vehicle 
platform, Rand Platform, has been chosen by 
Aramex(https://www.aramex.com/us/en) to help optimize the organization's fleet 
performance. The global logistics and delivery company is rolling out the 
solution to 11 locations in the Middle East and North Africa region, with plans 
to expand the program in coming months.

Focused on saving fuel and improving vehicle and driver performance, Aramex 
chose the Rand McNally Fleet platform due to the solution's "API-first" 
architecture that makes integrations easy and flexible. The platform is 
device-agnostic and seamlessly supports multiple asset types --  just what 
Aramex needed with its varied vehicle fleet that includes vans, motorcycles, 
trucks, and warehouse vehicles, among others.

"Aramex's requirements are a prime example of why our platform works for 
diverse customers across the globe and across the supply chain," said Jakub 
Felinski, Rand McNally Fleet's Chief Technology Officer. "The connected vehicle 
solution we offer enables a single platform for fleets from long-haul and local 
trucking to government and rental fleets, to OEMs. And it doesn't matter if a 
fleet's vehicles are fuel-based, EV, or mixed."

The deal with Aramex includes Rand McNally supplied hardware, a driver app and 
manager app, and a customized web portal from which managers can track vehicles 
and driver metrics. The hardware is a mixture of OBDII plug-in devices as well 
as hard-wired equipment for two-wheeled and older vehicles that don't have 
OBDII ports.

"Aramex continues to leverage the latest innovative technologies and solutions 
to further enhance our operational efficiencies and deliver exceptional service 
to our customers," said Alaa Saoudi, Chief Operating Officer – Express at 
Aramex. "By implementing the Rand McNally fleet management solution, we gain 
valuable insights that we can use to make our fleet safer and more productive. 
The streamlined data collection and management also enables us to further 
optimize our fuel costs, boost efficiencies, and enhance customer experience."
