We are thrilled to have been selected by BNSF Logistics to be a part of their Supplier Incentive Program!”
PedalCoach leverages LinkeDrive’s cloud-based platform to provide real-time, adaptive feedback for improving fuel efficiency and safety. The patented solution’s proprietary algorithms set a unique fueling target for each driver communicated in a simple red-yellow-green interface that allows drivers to achieve optimal behaviors and patterns.
LinkeDrive’s PedalCoach application can be deployed on LinkeDrive’s Android device and also integrated easily on Android-based tablets installed within cabs. Installations take under 15-minutes per truck, allowing fleets and drivers to reap the rewards of LinkeDrive’s technology instantly.
