    • In today’s world of advanced technology, Heniff continues to focus on our number one priority: to deliver our customer’s products safely and on schedule. By continuing to re-invest and develop advanced integrated solutions, we provide our customers with state of the art value added services, and continue to focus on being an industry leader.
    • Modern technology is becoming the status-quo in the trucking industry. It’s now a key component on how fleets become more efficient, productive, more responsive and pro-active to their customers’ requirements. At Heniff, we leverage our integrated technology infrastructure to provide full and complete transparency from order tendering to final delivery. This information is delivered to all the parties that need the important data; from driver, shipper, consignee and internal support staff.
    • Interpreting and presenting this information to internal support staff and customers in a timely, accurate manner enables Heniff to leverage these integrated systems into every aspect of our operational processes. This technology directly benefits customers by providing full visibility throughout the shipping process.
    • Heniff also utilizes SkyBitz equipped trailers. SkyBitz is an untethered WAAS GPS trailer tracking platform that allows us to pinpoint the exact location of any trailer within a 5 minute period. The SkyBitz platform has many advanced capabilities such as the ability to define geo-fences around customer shipment and delivery locations. Automatic rules based alerting can be configured to monitor idle time, positioning, and/or entrance or departure to particular geo-fenced locations.

    NaviGo Mapping allows real-time driver assistance and takes the guesswork out of route planning, ensuring that your order arrives on time, every time.

    • NaviGo Mapping & Routing provide detailed directions to Heniff drivers to ensure that loads get delivered in the quickest, safest, and most efficient manner. The NaviGo system significantly reduces the time spent by our drivers to get accurate directions from point A to point B.
