Orbcomm, McLeod Software truck communications features

Orbcomm, McLeod Software integrate communications features into fleet tracking

Orbcomm Inc., a provider of telematics solutions, and McLeod Software, a provider of transportation and logistics solutions, have announced the successful integration of Orbcomm’s two-way communications features for their fleet tracking and monitoring system with the McLeod LoadMaster enterprise system.

Orbcomm’s platform will now join forces with McLeod’s LoadMaster dispatch software to provide trucking companies across North America with the ability to capture near real-time trailer data for both refrigerated and dry transport assets in one system. Leveraging Orbcomm’s GT 1100 dry van trailer tracking solution and its RT 6000+ cold chain monitoring solution, customers will have access to valuable trailer data, including temperature, mileage, fuel levels, operational condition, alarm events and GPS position. Orbcomm is currently the only company to offer two-way communications integration with the McLeod system, providing customers with command and control over their assets, including the ability to turn the reefer on/off, set temperatures and switch between continuous and start/stop modes. The Orbcomm interface will enable McLeod customers to increase asset utilization, enhance customer service and proactively prevent spoilage cargo claims.

“Orbcomm’s seamless integration with LoadMaster enables us to access real-time trailer data, including the order number, through one easy enterprise system, whether our trailers are en route or at the shipper’s yard,” said Dale Decker, vice president and co-owner of Decker Truckline. “Utilizing Orbcomm’s two-way communications capability, we have complete control over our refrigerated trailers’ in-transit temperatures, so we can greatly reduce claims, maximize compliance and provide our customers with the highest level of service.”
