Xata Announces Multiple Operating Authority Management for Household Goods Carriers


MINNEAPOLIS, March 15, 2012—Xata Corporation (NASDAQ: XATA), a leader in fleet optimization software, today announced Xata Turnpike Multiple Management Authority, a tracking tool for fleet managers of household goods carriers who supervise drivers hauling for multiple operating authorities.

“Xata Turnpike is the first and only Hours of Service (HOS) and performance management solution that includes multiple authority management for household goods carriers,” said Christian Schenk, vice president, market development & product marketing, Xata. “Drivers and fleet managers now can effectively manage HOS across multiple entities, or authorities, with the precision of electronic logs.”

Drivers working for multiple authorities are required to keep multiple logs, which Schenk calls “a big headache for everyone involved.”

Schenk says ensuring logbook accuracy consumes extra time, and paper logs can result in unacceptable errors and missing information. With Xata Turnpike’s Multiple Authority Management, HOS is tracked automatically, which means greater HOS accuracy and a clear view of which drivers are available for each job.

“With Multiple Management Authority, fleet managers can track information from drivers across multiple authorities and help keep them HOS compliant, no matter who they’re driving for,” says Schenk.
