Zonar and Eleos Selected By Knight-Swift As Preferred Smart Fleet Management Solution Provider For Expanded Truck Fleet

| October 20, 2021

The Industry’s Largest Truckload Carrier Increases Zonar and Eleos Deployment on over 17,000 Trucks

Zonar, the leader in smart fleet technology announced that Knight-Swift Transportation Holdings Inc. (NYSE: KNX) (“Knight-Swift”), North America’s largest truckload transportation company, has selected Zonar as its preferred smart fleet management solution provider for its expanded truck fleet. Zonar solutions will be installed in 17,000 Knight-Swift vehicles across the nation by Q4 2021.

Zonar was selected due to its industry leading innovation and commitment to safety, holistic driver solutions, and its seamless integration with Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 tablets and the Eleos Technologies platform that powers Knight-Swift’s mobile driver application. Eleos will provide complementary solutions to the Zonar deployment – such as ELD integration using the OpenCab Standard (opencabstandard.org), support for both Zonar provided tablets and drivers’ phones, customized driver workflow, dispatcher communications, integrated truck navigation, document capture and payment status. Zonar and Eleos’ integrated solution will be available to additional customers later in 2021.

“This opportunity to expand our relationship with the newly forged Knight-Swift is a testament to the innovation, care and quality Zonar puts into all of its products and services for its customers,” said Wayne Deno, vice president of freight and over-the-road at Zonar. “We look forward to continuing to work with Knight-Swift to provide the industry’s largest trucking company with best-in-class solutions that ensure safety, efficiency and compliance for today, tomorrow and the future.”

Before Knight’s merger with Swift in 2017, Knight was a long-time customer of Zonar, with over 4,000 trucks running solutions such as ELD, GPS, navigation and other smart fleet management solutions. Zonar became the de facto choice for expanding smart fleet management solutions when 13,000 trucks came on from Swift.

“Zonar shares our core values and deep commitment to safety,” said Dave Jackson, President and CEO, Knight-Swift. “We felt extremely confident in selecting Zonar and Eleos to outfit our fleet with solutions that help us keep safety at the forefront.”

“Using OpenCab to combine our driver workflow apps with the Zonar platform ensures that every driver has the best possible experience with technology,” said Kevin Survance, CEO at Eleos. “Knight-Swift is taking a modular approach to technology in the cab, which allows them to create a tailored driver experience that truly reflects their business priorities.”
