Stagecoach Cartage and Distribution, a provider of a wide range of transportation services based in El Paso, Texas, recently received approval from the Mexico Secretaria de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT) to operate in Mexico – marking the start of a year-long cross-border demonstration project that will allow U.S. trucking companies to operate in Mexico for the first time.
Since 2003, Stagecoach’s entire truckload fleet of 350 trailers has been outfitted with the patented Global Locating System (GLS) trailer tracking technology from SkyBitz. The SkyBitz GLS 200 mobile units enable Stagecoach to have real-time visibility to every trailer in the fleet – whether they’re in the U.S. or Mexico.
“With the SkyBitz GLS tracking technology on our trailers, we can pinpoint the exact location of all our assets so that we know immediately if a trailer is in a different location than it should be,” said Scott McLaughlin, president of Stagecoach. “This capability is especially important for trailers that are operating south of the border. The SkyBitz solution allows us to enhance security and operate more efficiently with fewer assets.”
More than 420 fleets currently rely on SkyBitz GLS technology to track more than 135,000 trailers and containers and achieve total asset visibility, improve security, lower operating costs and enhance customer service.
Based in El Paso, Texas, Stagecoach was recognized by Inc. magazine as one of the 500 fastest-growing companies in the United States and has also ranked among the 100 fastest-growing privately held inner-city companies in America. For more information, visit www.statecoachcartage.com.
