HERNDON, USA: SkyBitz, player in remote asset tracking and information management solutions, announced that Transport America, Inc., a provider of truckload transportation and logistics services, has chosen asset management technology solutions from SkyBitz for its entire fleet of trailers.

Transport America selected the new subscription-based enterprise solution, SkyBitz as a Service, allowing implementation to begin immediately with no upfront capital expense, it added.

Transport America is poised to become a strategic growth engine to capture the fragmented domestic U.S. Truckload market. With intelligent trailer data, including cargo status and trends analytics reporting from SkyBitz, Transport America is now enabled to operate with more efficiencies than ever before.

“We are committed to providing the best equipment and state-of-the-art technology to ensure the greatest experience for our drivers and customers,” said Scott C. Arves, President and CEO, Transport America, Inc. “We were looking for real-time data to help us improve customer service and equipment utilization, while reducing unnecessary headaches and wasted hours for our drivers. With more precise data and trends analytics on trailers and cargo from SkyBitz, we’ll be able to operate with more efficiencies than ever before.”

As explained, Transport America is installing SkyBitz’s newest cellular-based technology, the award winning Falcon GXT3000 and cargo sensors for real-time visibility to the location and load status of all of its trailers.

Company states that the actionable information from SkyBitz’s asset management solution is seamlessly integrated with Transport America’s existing transportation management system for faster intelligence and added convenience. Included in the solution is the visual information dashboard tool, InSight Trends, which delivers powerful analytics reporting regarding trailer pools, trailer turns, mileage and idle time performance.

“We are excited to begin a lasting partnership with Transport America. Their management team has a strong plan to expand the business and SkyBitz will be an integral technology solution to help them,” said Henry Popplewell, Senior Vice President and General Manager, SkyBitz. “With SkyBitz as a Service, Transport America will be able to focus on their growth strategies, relying on insightful analytics data to optimize their fleet and improve their customers’ experience.”
