LTI Trucking Services Inc, a nationwide truckload carrier and full-service logistics company based in St Louis MO, has selected ORBCOMM to provide its cold chain telematics solution to track, monitor and control its fleet of refrigerated trailers.
ORBCOMM will provide cellular connectivity, state-of-the-art hardware, wireless fuel and door sensors, along with a web-based reporting platform for optimal fleet management.
LTI will use ORBCOMM’s cold chain telematics solution to provide temperature, fuel management and maintenance data for its refrigerated trailer fleet transporting perishable food, beverage and confectionary products. Leveraging this solution, LTI will fully integrate the data with its proprietary back-office platform to optimize asset utilization and compliance with the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). ORBCOMM’s advanced solution also integrates closely with McLeod LoadMaster transportation management platform. The Loadmaster two-way interface enables LTI to capture near real-time trailer data—including operational condition and GPS position—through one system.
“There is increasing demand from our customers to ensure quick delivery times, real-time visibility of shipment status and location, and proof of product integrity,” said Phil Hamel, chief financial officer and chief operating officer of LTI Trucking Services. “ORBCOMM offers the most robust solution with the best end-to-end service on the market today to meet our customers’ needs, and we look forward to seeing the additional ROI benefits in fuel savings, improved asset utilization and reduced claims once we deploy their solution across our entire fleet.”
LTI Trucking Services is currently installing the ORBCOMM solution and expects to complete full fleet deployment in the first quarter of 2018.
