Locus and Lytx partnered to deliver future-ready logistics solutions such as video telematics and analytics, safety and productivity solutions for commercial and public sector fleets, helping with higher asset utilization, optimized route planning, better driver communication and seamless interactions with shippers and warehouses.

Per the agreement, Lytx will provide GPS location information on vehicles and utilize the planned route and location information to compare planned vs. actual performance, while Locus will use the information to prepare the most optimized route.

“We are very excited to join forces with an innovative partner like Lytx and take our combined solution to the market. This partnership offers the perfect blend of analytics and routing capabilities to our customers,” says Krishna Khandelwal, chief business officer, Locus. “The optimized routing reduces both capital and operational costs for local distribution while increasing service levels and revenue-generating activities.”

Fleet managers can keep track of their vehicles through GPS, get insights into driving behaviors through our proprietary video and machine vision and artificial intelligence offering, dispatch technicians and route vehicles.”
