“At KLLM we are a driver-focused company. We understand that these professionals are key contributors to our Company’s success and we remain committed to supporting them accordingly.

Maptuit delivers on these promises by providing our drivers with the industry’s most accurate truck routing available” Stated K. William Grothe, Jr., President and CEO of KLLM.
“We are in the business of providing our customers with real-time information that affect their business and their bottom line.” stated Jeff Papows, President and CEO of Maptuit. “With the only dynamic road network our customers take real advantage of our expertise. As recent as the bridge collapse in Minnesota or as far back as hurricane’s Rita and Katrina on the gulf coast, we were able to shut down entire highways and roadways and re-route our customer’s trucks around those affected areas; being able to do this in real-time makes Maptuit the solution for today’s trucking needs and gives our customers a competitive edge. We are happy to have KLLM join Maptuit and the growing community of drivers.”
