ROCHELLE PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of industrial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced that it will showcase its complete, integrated transportation solution offering in Booth 33 at the Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) 80th Annual Convention from March 25-28, 2018 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Kissimmee, FL. Through both ongoing innovation and last year’s acquisitions of inthinc and Blue Tree, ORBCOMM is now able to track, monitor and control nearly all transport asset classes – from in-cab fleet vehicles to refrigerated assets to dry vans – all visible in a single platform.
In addition to its industry-leading cargo solutions, ORBCOMM will demonstrate its truck management solutions, which enable simplified Hours of Service (HOS) management so drivers can maximize driving hours and comply with regulations. ORBCOMM’s solutions provide the most driver-friendly interface in the market and are certified with the FMCSA’s Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate in the United States and working hour rules in Canada. ORBCOMM’s solutions also monitor and report on driver performance to help improve fleet safety, minimize vehicle wear and tear and optimize fuel economy. These solutions offer driver performance scorecards, peer-comparison and live on-board coaching to increase awareness of driving patterns and reduce aggressive driving behaviors that may lead to fines, accidents and higher insurance premiums.
ORBCOMM will also feature its enhanced trailer tracking solution, which now supports a security cable that can be used for intrusion detection applications for trailers and containers, sending alerts when the cable is open or cut, to help prevent theft, damage and unauthorized use. For enhanced versatility, ORBCOMM’s trailer tracking solution now offers an optional wireless temperature probe for monitoring the temperature of the cargo area or pallet, serving as an economical cold chain solution. ORBCOMM will be showcasing a host of other feature enhancements, support functionality and third-party integrations for its portfolio of transportation devices and SaaS applications to help customers operate their businesses smarter and more effectively.
