ORBCOMM has been selected by Pottle's Transportation to provide its latest trailer monitoring solution for their dry van fleet. The company's end-to-end telematics solution provides wireless connectivity through its industry-leading hardware and integrated cloud-based analytics platform for efficient fleet management.
“We are pleased to be selected by an industry leader such as Pottle’s Transportation to launch their fleet-wide trailer monitoring program, which leverages ORBCOMM’s advanced functionality, value-added services and deep expertise in transportation,” says Marc Eisenberg, Chief Executive Officer of ORBCOMM Inc. “ORBCOMM’s ability to provide best-in-class telematics solutions for multiple transport asset classes through one integrated platform offers Pottle’s a strong, long-lasting ROI and supports their plans for future growth and expansion into new markets.”
Pottle's will use ORBCOMM's advanced trailer monitoring solution, which features a high-sensitivity solar panel and built-in cargo sensor, along with its robust platform to manage its dry van trailers, gaining complete visibility and control over their entire fleet. The solution will enable Pottle's to access live and scheduled status updates whether their trailers are in transit or in the yard, thus improving turn times and yard management while also saving their drivers time and fuel. In addition, the trailer telematics solution will also provide the ability to see precise data to schedule trailer maintenance, inspections and time elapsed for increased asset utilization and performance.
“Trailer tracking is an essential tool for enhancing visibility, improving utilization and lowering costs, and ORBCOMM offers a solution that gives us all of those benefits through accurate locations and cargo sensing data,” says Chelsea Pottle Demmons, Vice President of Pottle’s Transportation. “One of our main goals is to reduce the amount of time spent sending drivers into locations looking for empty trailers. We searched the market for a trailer monitoring system that meets all of our needs reliably and cost effectively, and we found it with ORBCOMM.”
