EV Bizz: UPS takes its next step toward carbon-neutrality with the Freightliner eCascadia trucks
ALK Technologies, a Trimble company and provider of GeoLogistics solutions and navigation software, and SkyBitz, provider of remote asset tracking and information management solutions, announced that SkyBitz has integrated ALK Maps with its InSight asset tracking and management web application. The combination provides SkyBitz’s customers with real-time visualizations of interactive street-level maps with satellite imagery.
ALK Maps enhances InSight with relevant, transportation-specific data missing from consumer mapping applications. InSight users will now benefit from truck-specific map overlays for fuel and truck stops, weigh stations, toll roads and landmarks, in addition to commercial restrictions and hazmat designations, according to the company. These enhanced map layers can apply to the multiple industry segments SkyBitz serves including trucking, oil and gas and intermodal. Customers will also have the ability to set up geo-fencing for Class 8 vehicles, clustered layers and benefit from other enhancements to landmark creation and editing. These capabilities can save fleet dispatchers and driver managers valuable time and productivity, allowing them to focus more closely on drivers and assets.
“ALK Maps is designed from the ground up for the trucking and logistics industry,” said Dan Popkin, senior vice president, enterprise solutions at ALK. “ALK Maps will complement SkyBitz’s remote asset tracking capabilities by allowing customers a greater level of control over finding the closest available resources to their assets. This includes visibility not only of where they are, but also how they got there. All of this can be accomplished from a single, integrated solution.”
The ALK Maps integration is now available for SkyBitz customers within SkyBitz InSight.
