SkyBitz, TMW offer enhanced trailer and cargo information

SkyBitz, TMW announce enhanced trailer and cargo information integrated with TruckMate

SkyBitz, developers of remote asset tracking and information management solutions, and TMW Systems, providers of transportation management and asset maintenance solutions, have announced new enhancements to their integrated solution with TruckMate software from TMW. The combined solution will provide customers of both companies the ability to centrally monitor and track trailers in TruckMate to gain real-time operations information, location and cargo status for improved utilization and security.

SkyBitz has been a strategic partner for years, offering our shared customers innovative solutions for increased fleet visibility and actionable information,” said Ray West, senior vice president and general manager of TruckMate, Innovative and TL2000 Software for TMW Systems. “With the recent additions to the SkyBitz integration with TruckMate, customers gain the fleet visibility they need to quickly find available trailers to assign with the next load and can turn their trailers faster.”

The integration will deliver trailer-specific information directly to TruckMate, which the companys say will improve asset utilization and fleets reclaim unused capacity in the fleet.

The latest integration of SkyBitz and TruckMate allows fleet operators to:

  • View accurate trailer and cargo status to quickly determine if the trailer is loaded or empty, hooked or unhooked, in-motion or stationary. Also, at a glance, know the trailer’s power status and mileage.
  • Search for and identify the nearest idle trailers to an accurate location.
  • Perform yard checks.

“The key to a successful relationship is providing solutions that help solve joint customers’ needs. TMW Systems shares our vision and it is why year after year we’ve deepened our cooperation and integrations,” said Henry Popplewell, senior vice president and general manager of SkyBitz. “The ability to quickly find accurate trailer information not only greatly improves our customers’ efficiency but also helps them to improve satisfaction with their drivers and customers.”
