The Motorola Solutions
business of Motorola, Inc.and ExtenData
, a provider of mobility applications, recently announced that Maalt Transport
has selected their proof of delivery (PoD) solution to improve operations and increase productivity across its delivery fleet.
With more than 30 years of combined experience in the transportation, oil field service, and environmental service industry, Maalt Transport selected the rugged Motorola MC75A enterprise mobile computer to improve the receiving, unloading, and storage of specialty sand products.
Maalt Transport operates rail spur facilities in Texas and Oklahoma, and its15 rail cars are unloaded and processed every four hours. Fracturing sand is then delivered by bulk pneumatic transport trucks to remote drilling locations--requiring reliable connectivity to voice and data applications.
"Downtime is simply not an option for our customers who run high-tempo operations 365 days a year," says Gary Humphrey, owner, Maalt Transport. "Whether we are delivering fracturing sand to an oil well or participating in clean-up operations, we need operational clarity in order to deliver the level of service our customers require."
The PoD solution consists of Motorola's rugged MC75A enterprise mobile computers running ExtenData's MobileConductor software to meet the demanding needs of Maalt Transport's mobile workforce and provide future-proofing for potential advanced delivery operations.
"By combining Motorola's MC75A with ExtenData's PoD software, Maalt Transport can quickly deliver goods, track wait time, dispatch, re-route loads and dynamically manage the fleet to meet fast-paced customer demands," explains Ralph Lieberthal, principal of transportation and logistics, Motorola Solutions.
Maalt previously used a paper-based solution that did not provide the operational visibility and planning efficiencies needed to provide high levels of customer service. By deploying an easy-to-use, rugged PoD solution from Motorola and ExtenData, Maalt will improve real-time visibility across the organization.
