DSI selects ORBCOMM telematics solutions

ORBCOMM Inc, a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions, has been selected by Distribution Solutions Inc (DSI) to provide telematics solutions for its mixed fleet of refrigerated and dry van trailers. Harrison AR-based DSI offers full-service refrigerated, truckload, and dry van services across the continental United States.

DSI is using ORBCOMM’s trailer telematics systems to track, monitor, and control its refrigerated and dry van trailers. ORBCOMM’s end-to-end solutions include proprietary hardware and a robust web application with data reporting and analytics capabilities. The firm provides DSI with two-way temperature monitoring and control, fuel management, maintenance, and logistics services, which enable DSI to increase in-transit visibility and utilization of its assets, mitigate product spoilage, and ensure compliance with the FDA’s upcoming Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

In addition, ORBCOMM’s cargo sensor continuously reports the trailer’s loaded condition and changes in cargo status. This helps DSI increase trailer turn time, improve productivity, eliminate yard checks, and prevent cargo theft.

ORBCOMM’s telematics solutions integrate with the McLeod LoadMaster dispatch software platform, enabling DSI to capture near-real-time asset data for its mixed fleet—including operational condition, exception reporting, and GPS position—through one comprehensive system.
