Trailer & Cargo Tracking System Provides Multiple Benefits for Logistics One
WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. and PLANO, Texas, May 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Asset Intelligence, a subsidiary of I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY), a leading provider of wireless solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things, has executed a contract with Logistics One, Inc., to deploy its VeriWise™ Dry Van tracking and management system on Logistics One’s fleet of 300 trailers. The term of the contract is five years.
The contract was awarded after a 60-day pilot deployment. During the pilot, the VeriWise system demonstrated multiple benefits for Logistics One, including accurate trailer load status for more efficient dispatching, reduced trailer dormancy, elimination of trailer yard checks, identification of trailers being used for storage, and more efficient fleet maintenance management.
“The VeriWise Dry Van tracking system captures powerful, actionable data on our trailers and their cargo, including real-time location and accurate loaded/unloaded status,” said Tom Moss, Logistics One’s Director of Transportation. “We will use the data to drive process changes, which we expect will significantly reduce trailer dormancy and increase the revenue capacity of our existing fleet by hundreds of trailer-days per month.”
Logistics One provides integrated warehousing, transportation and freight brokerage services throughout the northeastern United States and Canada. The company specializes in efficient, cost-effective distribution solutions for the food, beverage and paper industries.
“We are providing Logistics One with state-of-the-art trailer tracking technology—our GSM-D300 system, which combines a patented light sensor with a full trailer-length cargo sensor,” said Norman Ellis, I.D. Systems’ COO. “Based on the effectiveness of the initial deployment of the base system, Logistics One has also asked us to integrate tire inflation sensing into the system. We look forward to continue working with Logistics One to help them deliver best-in-class transportation solutions for their customers.”
Features of the VeriWise GSM-D300 VeriWise™ Dry Van Cellular tracking and management system include:
- One person can install the system in 20-30 minutes.
- Real-time location tracking via GPS triggers automatic notifications when exception events occur.
- Even when a trailer is disconnected from a tractor, the system will still report data (for up to 5 months).
- The system’s patented light sensor functions like a wired door sensor—without the installation cost or risk of damage to exposed cables.
- The system meets rigorous IP69K and SAE J1455 environmental standards.
- A 7-way tractor power connection ensures reliable charging of the system’s 5-year battery.
- The system can be swapped quickly and easily from trailer to trailer.
- Advanced fleet data analytics are also offered, as an option.
