Asset Intelligence, a subsidiary of I.D. Systems, announced that its VeriWise Track & Trace system has been purchased by Garner Transportation Group, a truckload carrier in the Midwest. Garner will deploy the system on its entire fleet of dry vans for an initial contract term of five years.

VeriWise Track & Trace provides real-time data to improve the efficiency and security of trailer and container fleets, the company says. It is designed for quick, flexible installation on a wide range of cargo-carrying assets, with power management technology to provide long battery life and maintenance-free operation.

Garner, based in Findlay, Ohio, provides a wide range of transportation, warehousing, and logistics services throughout the Midwest U.S.

“The VeriWise Track & Trace system enables us to gain real-time visibility of our dry van fleet, eliminate manual yard checks, and improve our dispatch efficiency,” says Garner President Sherri Garner Brumbaugh. “That translates into more timely, controlled deliveries for our customers, and almost a 10 percent increase in fleet utilization for us.”

“We chose Track & Trace for its value, ease of installation, and reliability compared to other solutions we tried,” continued Brumbaugh. “It was especially important to us that the system can be mounted externally on our dry vans—not on the roof where it would be subject to damage—and that installation takes less than 15 minutes.”
