SkyBitz enters partnership with Coretex

SkyBitz has announced a strategic technology partnership with fleet logistics solutions provider Coretex.

The companies say the partnership combines Coretex’s sensor-based reefer solution and cloud-based software platform with SkyBitz trailer tracking technology to create a solution for businesses needing both powered and non-powered asset tracking. Food, pharmaceutical and retail customers can now achieve total visibility into the status of loads during transportation, the companies say.

The SkyBitz and Coretex partnership allow customers to access and manage both reefer device data and trailer tracking data via one solution, the companies say, and customers can now automate FSMA compliance.

With this new offering, the companies say customers of Coretex and SkyBitz will benefit from the following:

  • More than 50 features of remote cold chain monitoring capabilities, including two-way reefer control, monitoring of up to six doors, and advanced power management to preserve reefer and telematics unit (TMU) battery life.
  • Single point of access to trailer utilization and reefer information on one connected platform.
  • Communication between the trailer and other connected sensors with options to expand to additional Coretex products such as their assurance solution, CoreTemp.
  • Compilation of integrated driver safety, compliance and asset management tools including the Coretex integration with trailer braking solutions and automatic tire inflation systems.
