Schneider, SkyBitz partner on next generation trailer, container tracking system

Schneider and SkyBitz have partnered to implement Schneider’s third generation trailer and container tracking system.

The new generation system will make use of the SkyBitz Falcon GXT5002C, a solar-powered, GPS-based asset management device that SkyBitz says improves asset utilization and cargo visibility. The Falcon GXT5002C provides reporting on several critical data points, including arrival and departure times, inner yard movements, idle durations, and cargo loaded or unloaded events in near-real time.

“Schneider is committed to providing a differentiated driver experience and eliminating job irritants,” says Shaleen Devgun, executive vice president and CIO of Schneider. “This technology enables drivers to efficiently locate an available empty trailer or container with pinpoint accuracy using their mobile devices which saves a significant amount of time.”

“Schneider wanted a high-quality trailer and container tracking solution that could be implemented quickly and efficiently,” says Henry Popplewell, president of SkyBitz. “SkyBitz designs its trailer, container, and asset tracking solutions for reliability, simple installation, and an overall lower cost of ownership. These tools give shippers more ways to ensure they’re delivering the highest quality service to every customer.”
