Omnitracs acquires SmartDrive – Truck News

DALLAS, Texas – Fleet management solutions provider Omnitracs is acquiring transportation technology company SmartDrive, the two companies announced Wednesday.

Financial details were not revealed, but media reports said the deal was worth US$450 million.

The combined company will offer the first enterprise-grade, fully integrated video-based safety, telematics, compliance and routing platform at scale.

“The combined company will bring together two transportation technology leaders to offer an industry-first converged, end-to-end platform that optimizes safety, driver productivity and workflow, as well as routing, dispatch and compliance,” they said.

The company will, for the first time, unite driving context with operational insight across hundreds of billions of data points to transform the experience for the driver, back office, and customer service alike, they added.
