Safe Fleet has acquired FleetMind Solutions, Inc., which is based in Montreal, Canada, and delivers onboard computing (OBC) systems that enable waste and recycling fleets to link their drivers and vehicles to business operations in real-time to ensure improved safety, productivity, sustainability and customer service.
FleetMind solutions have been successfully installed in thousands of refuse collection vehicles across North America, providing real-time information to drivers and dispatchers about a truck’s load-weight, route status, service completion, vehicular telemetry, driver activities and more. As a result, FleetMind-powered fleets enjoy optimized safety, total visibility into route progress, greater driver accountability, improved customer service, and vastly improved fuel efficiencies.
“We are excited to welcome FleetMind into the Safe Fleet family. This acquisition supports our vision to build the leading global provider of safety solutions for fleet vehicles,” said John R. Knox, President & CEO of Safe Fleet. “The addition of FleetMind expands Safe Fleet’s growing position in fleet management software & hardware for specialty fleet vehicles. The FleetMind product line is complementary to Safe Fleet’s existing fleet management products and expands Safe Fleet’s presence in the waste and recycling market.”
FleetMind will maintain both the operations out of its Montreal headquarters and its regional representation throughout North America. Co-owners, Martin Demers, CEO, and Martin Lord, CTO, will continue their leadership roles as Vice-Presidents within the Safe Fleet organization.
