MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Aug 12, 2013) - PeopleNet®, the leading provider of fleet mobility solutions that reduce cost per mile, improve safety/compliance and enable profitable fleet growth, today announced that Southeastern Freight Lines is replacing its technology with PeopleNet's open platform.

"Plus, PeopleNet offers us tremendous expansion opportunities for future applications that will continue to enhance the safety of our drivers' environment."
SEFL's proprietary applications -- driver logs, vehicle/driver tracking, real-time pick-up and delivery workload management, electronic driver vehicle inspection report, survey system for driver feedback about maintenance performance, and more -- are integrated with PeopleNet's Vehicle Management data and other telematics information such as GPS location. The company is also integrating PeopleNet's In-Cab Navigation and other driver performance metrics.
