Covenant selects ORBCOMM for telematics

ORBCOMM Inc (Nasdaq:ORBC) announced that Covenant Transportation Group (CTG) has chosen it to provide its cold chain telematics solution to track, monitor and control its fleet of refrigerated trailers at Covenant Transport and Southern Refrigerated Transport.

Cellular connectivity, state-of-the-art hardware, wireless fuel and door sensors, and a web-based reporting platform for optimal fleet management will be provided.

CTG, headquartered in Chattanooga TN, will use ORBCOMM’s cold chain telematics solution to provide comprehensive temperature, fuel management and maintenance data for its refrigerated trailer fleet. The truckload provider will fully integrate the data with its proprietary back-office platform to optimize temperature compliance and asset utilization. ORBCOMM’s advanced solution also integrates closely with TMW Systems’ TMWSuite transportation management platform. The TMWSuite two-way interface enables CTG to capture near real-time trailer data, including operational condition and GPS position, through one system.

“We are pleased to have been chosen by CTG to launch their cold chain telematics initiative, which further demonstrates that ORBCOMM is the solution provider of choice in the transportation market,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s chief executive officer. “ORBCOMM’s cold chain monitoring solution provides full asset visibility and control to protect refrigerated cargo and maximize utilization, which will help CTG enable temperature management and improve the efficiency of their cold chain operations.”

CTG will begin installing the solution immediately and expects to complete full fleet deployment by the end of 2017.
