FAB Express, a fourth-generation, family-owned trucking company that has provided transportation services for over 100 years, recently selected VeriWise Satellite Tracking System, a model introduced by Asset Intelligence, to manage its Dry Van Fleet.
The VeriWise Dry Van solution works like an advanced trailer tracking system, offering real-time data to improve the efficiency of cargo transport fleets. This innovative system will be deployed on FAB's fleet of approximately 1,000 cargo trailers.
“FAB Express is a welcome addition to our family of customers,” said Darryl Miller, I.D. Systems' COO. “We are confident that by using our VeriWise Dry Van tracking and management system, FAB will improve both customer satisfaction and fleet operating efficiencies.”
This latest system offers GPS-based location tracking, real-time two-way communications via satellite network, and patented power management technology to provide exceptionally long battery life and years of maintenance-free operation.
Fred Bartuch, Jr., president of FAB said that their customers wanted to get better visibility of their materials in transit, to help increase the velocity of their supply chain and after a competitive review of several systems; they chose VeriWise Dry Van from Asset Intelligence because it delivered superior functionality and reliability.
Bartuch further said that they have deployed the advanced asset tracking technology on their dry vans, so they wanted to get it right and after a series of competitive tests, they determined that not only did VeriWise fulfilled customers' need for cargo visibility, it also enabled them to monitor and dispatch their trailer fleet more efficiently.
“For example, the system let us understand in real time when trailers were sitting at customer sites longer than they should be. By shedding light on situations like that, which had previously been a bit of a black hole for us, the VeriWise system will help us generate more revenue from our assets,” he concluded.
Asset Intelligence, a subsidiary of I.D. Systems based in Plano, Texas, is a leading provider of trailer and container tracking solutions for manufacturers, retailers, shippers and freight transportation providers. It offers a full range of solutions to improve safety, security and productivity throughout global supply chains.
