Werner Enterprises Inc has selected ORBCOMM to provide a tracking and monitoring system for its over-the-road refrigerated trailers. Founded in 1956, Werner is a transportation and logistics company providing services throughout North America, Asia, Europe, South America, Africa, and Australia.
The company uses ORBCOMM’s cold chain telematics system that provides comprehensive temperature, fuel management, maintenance, and logistical applications services for its refrigerated trailers. The application includes ORBCOMM’s proprietary hardware along with a robust web application with data reporting and analytics capabilities to increase in-transit visibility and efficiency of Werner’s refrigerated transport operations. Leveraging ORBCOMM’s solution, Werner will fully integrate the trailer data with its proprietary back-office platform to gain fuel savings, optimize temperature compliance, and maximize asset utilization.
“We are pleased to be working with Werner, a technology leader in the transportation industry, to help them improve the efficiency of their cold chain operation and gain a stronger competitive edge in customer satisfaction and regulatory compliance,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s chief executive officer. “ORBCOMM’s advanced technology also offers Werner an added level of safety and security that we expect will translate into a positive impact on their bottom line through reduced fuel costs, maintenance, and conservation of loads.”
“By utilizing ORBCOMM’s state-of-the-art telematics solution, we can ensure the on-time delivery and product integrity of our customers’ temperature-controlled products—from fresh produce to frozen products to pharmaceuticals,” said Steve Phillips, senior vice-president of equipment resources for Werner. “ORBCOMM’s tracking and monitoring solution provides complete visibility of our trailers and the cargo they are carrying throughout the supply chain so we can optimize use of our assets and provide our customers with best-in-class service, which is paramount to our business.”
ORBCOMM has already begun installing its telematics system on Werner’s refrigerated trailers.
Under its ReeferTrak, GenTrak, GlobalTrak, and CargoWatch brands, ORBCOMM provides the ability to proactively monitor, manage, and remotely control cold chain and dry transport assets. Additionally, ORBCOMM provides Automatic Identification System (AIS) data services for vessel tracking and to improve maritime safety to government and commercial customers worldwide.
