March 6, 2015
Alexandria, Va. – The American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) commends Rand McNally, the most respected name in navigation, electronic logs and mobile fleet management solutions, for demonstrating a strong commitment to the moving and storage industry by renewing membership in AMSA’s Chairman’s Circle. This elite group of industry suppliers supports AMSA’s initiatives by investing not only financially, but also through generous donations of their time, resources and creative input. These companies are recognized by AMSA’s leadership and members for putting the industry’s interests first and providing valuable guidance and support.
“The American Moving & Storage Association is pleased that Rand McNally will continue as a partner in the prestigious Chairman’s Circle. Rand McNally is a long-time industry supplier with an outstanding reputation as the go-to source for point-to-point software and navigation products widely used by AMSA members. We appreciate company leaders’ strong commitment to AMSA and look forward to continuing our work with them to enhance the success of moving and storage companies,” said Scott Michael, president and CEO of AMSA.
Rand McNally has been delivering innovative products to the commercial transportation industry for nearly 80 years. From the early days of mileage guides and printed maps to today’s full line of navigation, routing, mileage, electronic logging, and mobile fleet management solutions, Rand McNally has been a staple in cabs and fleet offices for decades. The IntelliRoute® TND™ line of truck GPS devices provides award-winning navigation plus the tools professional drivers and fleet managers need to optimize their business on the road. The TND™ 760 mobile fleet management device provides low total cost of ownership with robust capabilities, including mapping and reporting, electronic logs and DVIR, email, and navigation, as well as performance monitoring. It’s fully compliant with all Hours-of-Service Regulations, and offers HOS alerts and warnings for drivers.
Most recently, Rand McNally announced that The Rand McNally Mobile Fleet Management devices now support Multiple Operating Authority tracking. The MOA feature, which tracks drivers’ and trucks’ hours of service separately, was designed with input from experts in the moving and storage business – an industry in which it is common to have multiple carriers and operating authorities. Rand McNally also has worked with AMSA for the past several decades on The Official Transportation Mileage Guide for the Household Goods Carriers’ Bureau.
