Rand McNally Renews Longtime Chairman's Circle Partnership with AMSA
January 19, 2016
(Alexandria, VA) — The American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) applauds Rand McNally, the most respected name in navigation, electronic logs and mobile fleet management solutions, for demonstrating a strong commitment to the moving and storage industry by renewing membership in AMSA's Chairman's Circle. Rand McNally is a founding member of the Chairman's Circle, which was started in 2007, and has been an AMSA supplier member for more than 30 years.
The Chairman's Circle is an elite group of industry suppliers that supports AMSA's initiatives by investing not only financially, but also through generous donations of their time, resources and creative input. These companies are recognized by AMSA's leadership and members for putting the industry's interests first and providing valuable guidance and support.
"Rand McNally has demonstrated outstanding support for the moving and storage industry as a partner in the prestigious Chairman's Circle. The American Moving & Storage Association appreciates Rand McNally's strong commitment to the association, and we look forward to continuing our vital work with them to strengthen the success of moving and storage companies nationwide," said Scott Michael, president and CEO of AMSA.
This year, Rand McNally is celebrating 80 years of delivering innovative products to the commercial transportation industry. From the early days of mileage guides and printed maps to today's robust line of navigation, routing, mileage, electronic logging, and mobile fleet management solutions, Rand McNally has been a staple in cabs and fleet offices for decades. The IntelliRoute® TNDTM line of truck GPS devices provides award-winning navigation plus the tools professional drivers and fleet managers need to optimize their business on the road. The TNDTM mobile fleet management device provides low total cost of ownership with mapping and reporting, electronic logging and DVIR, email, and navigation, as well as performance monitoring. It offers HOS alerts and warnings to help drivers and fleets stay compliant with federal rules.
Rand McNally's fleet management devices also support Multiple Operating Authority tracking. Leveraging input from experts in the moving and storage business, the MOA feature tracks drivers' and trucks' hours of service separately — a critical function in an industry in which it's common to have multiple carriers and operating authorities. In addition, Rand McNally has worked with AMSA for the past several decades on The Official Transportation Mileage Guide for the Household Goods Carriers' Bureau.
