SkyBitz, provider of remote asset tracking and information management solutions, has announced the Falcon GXT3100C. This all-in-one product is built upon the Falcon GXT3000, a custom-built cellular product designed to deliver accurate, real-time data, enabling operations managers to make critical decisions that improve fleet efficiency and their company’s bottom line.
The Falcon GXT3100C provides real-time location and cargo status and is ideal for users that want an easy-to-install product that is also covert. It consists of the GXT3100 mobile terminal with remote antenna, the SkyBitz Cargo Sensor, and a proprietary mounting bracket. This all-in-one configuration simplifies installation and provides the added benefit of only exposing a small antenna to the outside of the trailer.
Fremont Contract Carriers and USA Truck have both selected the new Falcon GXT3100C under the subscription-based SkyBitz as a Service for their fleets.
“We have many locations where we haul inbound loads to, drop the trailer, and then return to haul out a new load from that same facility,” said Tim McCormick, chief operating officer, Fremont Contract Carriers. “We rely on the SkyBitz cargo sensor to tell us if the trailer was in fact unloaded, reloaded, and ready for outbound. Not having to send drivers on searches to find trailers and then verify if they’re empty or loaded saves fuel and hours while reducing our driver’s frustration. The bigger picture for us is the ability to manage our trailers more efficiently. SkyBitz helps us save the cost of purchasing new ones and gives us better trailer-to-tractor ratios. With the all-in-one product, we get a quicker install, fewer drilled holes, and stealthier placement—invisible from the exterior of the trailer.”
USA Truck, a SkyBitz customer since 2011, recently re-evaluated and renewed its fleet with SkyBitz as a Service, installing the Falcon GXT3100C.
“We’ve already seen the value of cargo status in addition to location updates from SkyBitz and, with this new product, we’re able to receive even more frequent reporting,” said Russell Overla, executive vice-president–truckload operations, USA Truck. “SkyBitz as a Service is an attractive offering because it enables us to quickly deploy the new all-in-one device to our fleet by eliminating any upfront hardware costs and providing us with the latest technology updates.”
