SkyBitz, a provider of remote asset tracking and information management solutions, announced that Rush Trucking, a long-haul truckload carrier, has chosen SkyBitz as their trailer tracking system for its fleet.
In six months of using the SkyBitz Gemini Series GLS400, Rush Trucking has recovered 3 stolen trailers. Rush Trucking was alerted when the trailers moved outside the electronic fence they set up, which allowed them to quickly react and recover the trailers.
In addition to improved security, Rush Trucking says it will now be able to drive more efficient asset utilization across its fleet and improve customer satisfaction through improving asset allocation and on-time delivery, and total load visibility. The GLS400 coupled with Web-based application, SkyBitz InSight, provides managers the ability to view assets in real-time and run customizable management and operational reports for each trailer in their fleet. Rush Trucking also automatically downloads all of the positioning data into their own truckload management software allowing them to fully integrate with SkyBitz.
“With SkyBitz’s trailer tracking solution, we have better visibility of our fleet and the status of our trailers. We were looking for more real-time data to help us gain more efficiencies and utilization. With more precise and real time metrics on trailers, we’ve been able to make reductions to the size of our fleet,” said Andra Rush, CEO & President.
