SkyBitz, a provider of satellite-based trailer tracking and information management services, and TravelCenters of America announced an agreement that TA will sell and replace SkyBitz batteries at more than 161 travel centers across the United States and Canada. This new partnership will allow SkyBitz’s 170 customers to conveniently change their Mobile Terminal batteries and maintain their Global Locating System (GLS) on the road.
“SkyBitz provides services that put the needs of its customers first,” says Roni Taylor, executive vice president of marketing for SkyBitz. “Even though our batteries only need to be changed once every few years, we learned that our customers want a convenient, on-the-road solution. TA’s extensive network of centers across North America enables us to provide another valuable service to our customers.”
TA, the largest network of full-service travel centers and heavy truck repair facilities in North America, will offer a battery replacement service to SkyBitz customers by replacing internal Mobile Terminal batteries or installing new external batteries, which have an even longer battery life.
“SkyBitz is the leader in trailer tracking, and we look forward to a profitable partnership with them,” says Randy Graham of TravelCenters of America. “TA is known as ‘The Complete Stop’ for trucking companies and independent drivers. By offering this convenient service, it is another way we maintain that important status.”
