SkyBitz, a provider of trailer-tracking technology for the trucking industry, has announced the addition of seven customers that are deploying its tracking solutions. SkyBitz says more than 320 fleets now rely on its Global Locating System technology to track in excess of 120,000 trailers.

The latest customers have each selected the SkyBitz GLS 200 with Smart Sensor Tracking, a technology designed to automatically filter out the trailer’s nonessential starts and stops and only report actionable information determined by the customer, such as load arrival and departure times.

“Our untethered asset tracking solutions offer carriers and private fleets superior reliability, coverage, battery life and ease of use,” says Roni Taylor, executive vice president of Sterling, Va.-based SkyBitz. “By employing SkyBitz trailer-tracking technology, these customers are optimizing trailer utilization, increasing revenue per mile and maximizing security.”
