New Release - The latest release of the FirstFleet Mobile app has some great features designed to make the app better service the community of users which includes drivers, operations team members, customers and more.

HOS
The Hours of Service card has been enhanced with two new options to better service the needs of our driver community when help is needed. The added functions are:

The ability to email the log support team with a simple tap. You will find this option perhaps helpful when your request is not of an urgent nature and some delay in reply is acceptable. 

A new FAQ section designed to cover the most frequently asked questions with regard to HOS interactions. These topics include screenshots and tutorials designed to help our drivers service their needs quickly. A quick review of these tips may give you a better experience all the way around. 

The ability to issue a unit reset in times of trouble. In certain situations the in cab unit becomes locked or performs in a manner that requires a soft reset be sent to the device. We have now built this functionality into the app in. If you are logged into the Omnitracs unit and know it needs to be reset you now have the ability to issue a soft reset command directly inside the FirstFleet Mobile app without contacting the help desk.

The latest release of the FirstFleet Mobile app has some great features designed to help our driver community quickly locate authorized fuel stops and to speed the process of reporting a breakdown event.

Fuel Stops

The fuel stop card itself is not new but we have extended the functionality. In this new version you can not only locate an authorized fuel stop but you have options to view the amenities at the stop (ex: Showers, DEF, Parking Spaces, Food services, etc). If you have updated to the most recent version of the app you will see this new section inside the fuel stops card.

Today is Thanksgiving - a day set aside to pause and reflect on the blessings of life. I am sure each of us has a different set of blessings that come to mind when reflecting on our lives. For some it may be health, maybe it is children or grandchildren, our shared freedom, perhaps for some it is our work - something we can all be proud of. In the diversity of our team there are no doubt a wide range of blessings bestowed upon us.

The latest release of the FirstFleet Mobile App brings a few exciting new features which are geared to keeping our driver community informed and connected. This release provides two new cards on the main screen and some less obvious but likely well received enhancements.

In this release there is a new card for our driver community geared toward connecting them with the closest authorized fuel stops in our network. Using the card is simple, just tap and scroll the list of stops within close proximity to your current position. In the coming weeks a new release will provide additional details about the stop such as the number of lanes, showers, types of food offered and more.

In towns all across our country today Americans will celebrate the birth of our great country with family, food and festivities. As citizens of this great country we have the privilege of freedom and the right to choose. These blessings are not to be taken for granted or forgotten. They have come at a great cost to countless individuals and families throughout the history of our nation.

239 years ago our nation was founded with the hope and dream that we would one day be a great nation. It is with great thanks that we honor and remember those who dared to dream big in the name of freedom. Let us not forget that with great privilege comes great responsibility, and may today be a day of celebration, hope and unity for our country.

Today is a day to be thankful - a day to remember all of the blessing in our lives. For each of us there are no doubt a different set of things that jump out in our mind for which we are grateful. There are no doubt some common themes among us, but we are a diverse group of people with a diverse set of circumstances as well.

As I think about the things which stand out to me personally I am flooded with an attitude of gratitude. There are the personal things - my spouse, my children, health, caring friends and a collection of items that are convictions of my heart which are hard to articulate - but I am none the less thankful. There are undoubtedly blessings of country, freedom and an appreciation for those who sacrificed to ensure those things remained for future generations. We have much to be thankful for.

FirstFleet drivers enjoy a large and accessible fuel stop network that covers the needs of our drivers while over the road. In some cases you may find your self in unfamiliar territory and in need of fuel. In effort to help connect you with the closest fuel stop we have created a tool specifically designed to point you in the direction of the closest fuel stop from your current location.

Located at www.firstfleetinc.com under the title of Driver Fuel Network (login required) you will find a tool that can search for authorized fuel stops in a given state or located near your current position - using the GPS in your phone. The details of the fuel stop include the address, if the site has DEF, the stop phone number and a link to view the site on a map.
