Orbcomm, a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, was selected by Pottle’s Transportation to provide its trailer monitoring solution for their dry van fleet. Orbcomm’s end-to-end telematics solution provides wireless connectivity through its hardware and integrated cloud-based analytics platform for fleet management.

Pottle’s is using Orbcomm’s trailer monitoring solution, which features a solar panel and built-in cargo sensor, to manage its dry van trailers. Orbcomm’s solution helps Pottle access live and scheduled trailer status updates, to help improve turn times and yard management while saving their drivers time and fuel. Orbcomm’s trailer telematics solution also provides Pottle’s with the ability to see data to schedule trailer maintenance, inspections, and time elapsed. The Orbcomm devices can be installed externally on trailers in about 10 minutes, even when the asset is loaded. In addition, Pottle’s will utilize ORBCOMM’s trailer telematics data with their McLeod Transportation Management Software (TMS).

“We are pleased to be selected by an industry leader such as Pottle’s Transportation to launch their fleet-wide trailer monitoring program, which leverages Orbcomm’s advanced functionality, value-added services and deep expertise in transportation,” said Marc Eisenberg, CEO of Orbcomm. “Orbcomm’s ability to provide best-in-class telematics solutions for multiple transport asset classes through one integrated platform offers Pottle’s a strong, long-lasting ROI and supports their plans for future growth and expansion into new markets.”
