SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 26, 2015—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today a services suite for managing the transportation of fleets and equipment servicing well sites in the oil and gas industry. From upstream to downstream, companies can now utilize a comprehensive solutions portfolio to improve efficiencies in how they track loads, process tickets, navigate lease roads and record hours of service.

“The decline in oil prices have oil and gas companies looking at their fleets as an area to realize improved efficiencies,” said Jim Rodi, general manager of Trimble’s North American Oil and Gas Services Division. “With proven and repeatable ROI, our in-vehicle and out-of-vehicle product suite can save fleets time, money and enable organizations to do more with less. Trimble’s oil and gas products and services give fleets the real-time information and tools that they need to be more efficient, safer and compliant.”
