GREEN BAY, Wis. and HERNDON, Va. — Schneider, a provider of transportation and logistics services, has teamed up with SkyBitz to implement Schneider’s third generation trailer and container tracking system.
SkyBitz is a provider of best-fit vehicle and asset tracking solutions that give companies total visibility into their fleets and cargo, without increasing overhead.
“Schneider is committed to providing a differentiated driver experience and eliminating job irritants,” said Shaleen Devgun, executive vice president and CIO at Schneider. “This technology enables drivers to efficiently locate an available empty trailer or container with pinpoint accuracy using their mobile devices which saves a significant amount of time.”
As part of its third-generation solution, Devgun said Schneider has leveraged the SkyBitz Falcon GXT5002C, a solar-powered, GPS-based asset management device that improves asset utilization and cargo visibility.
The Falcon GXT5002C provides reporting on several critical data points, including arrival and departure times, inner yard movements, idle durations, and cargo loaded or unloaded events in near-real time.
“Schneider wanted a high-quality trailer and container tracking solution that could be implemented quickly and efficiently,” said Henry Popplewell, SkyBitz president. “SkyBitz designs its trailer, container, and asset tracking solutions for reliability, simple installation, and an overall lower cost of ownership. These tools give shippers more ways to ensure they’re delivering the highest quality service to every customer.”
“Our multi-vendor telematics strategy enables us to bring the best available functionality to our drivers,” Devgun said. “SkyBitz won the day with its latest technology.”
Through this working relationship, SkyBitz and Schneider can bring greater asset visibility and operational efficiency to drivers and customers across North America, Popplewell said. With this solution, dispatchers, drivers, and customer service associates can make more timely, data-driven
Devgun said more than a thousand enterprises rely on SkyBitz technology to achieve total asset visibility, improved security, lower operating and capital expenses, and enhanced customer service.
