Transflo will begin offering a premium feature on its Transflo Mobile+ app that helps truckers and fleets prevent the spread of spotted lanternfly and comply with the latest Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture quarantine orders. Spotted lanternfly is an invasive species and is considered a “planthopper,” laying eggs and hitching rides on trucks, railcars and other vehicles.
Fleets can contact Transflo to have the main menu of their Transflo Mobile+ app upgraded to include a "Spotted Lanternfly" button. The feature will provide access to current regulations, photos of the bug and a one-touch reporting to agricultural authorities. In addition, it will also direct users to information about the training and certification process that all businesses must undergo to move goods to, from or within a spotted lanternfly quarantine zone.
“This is an example of how Transflo Mobile+ can help drivers and fleets comply with the latest regulations while responding to an urgent need in the agricultural community,” says Frank Adelman, CEO and President of Transflo. “We can deliver valuable operational and safety workflows while leveraging the industry’s most widely used enterprise mobility and workday management platform.”
