BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Nov. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Command Alkon, the global leader in integrated supply chain technology solutions for the Heavy Building Materials industry, has been named a Top 10 Fleet Management Solution Provider by Logistics Tech Outlook magazine. Software and technology providers were judged on their ability to provide solutions that effectively, yet economically, account for a Fleet Management offering, keeping in mind the factor of time-focused delivery. Command Alkon was selected because the company’s software facilitates trading partner collaboration across heavy-civil and infrastructure jobsites, where operational transparency and efficiency drive meaningful results.

“The construction industry needs visibility within their supply chains to ensure materials arrive on-time, at the right location, and with the best utilization of logistics resources,” said Phil Ramsey, CEO at Command Alkon. “This is particularly important for inbound materials like concrete and aggregates which are always on a contractor’s critical path.”

Command Alkon’s TrackIt solution uses GPS tracking and telematics equipment to provide a real-time view of each truck’s location and driver performance. TrackIt Turn-Key is a service offering that bundles hardware, technology, engine connectivity devices, and installation into a monthly subscription service eliminating upfront capital expenditures. TrackIt 3P equips customers to better manage trucks when third party haulers come into play.
