Asset Intelligence, a provider of transportation asset management solutions and a subsidiary of I.D. Systems Inc., announced that Knight Transportation is expanding its deployment of VeriWise trailer management solutions across its entire trailer fleet. Knight will equip its dry vans and refrigerated trailers with a combination of VeriWise products, including VeriWise Track & Trace, VeriWise Dry Van with cargo sensing, and VeriWise Reefer.

“Knight has been a key Asset Intelligence customer and partner for many years, helping our solutions stay at the cutting edge of technical innovation,” said Darryl Miller, chief operating officer of I.D. Systems. “It is gratifying that our VeriWise technology continues to drive significant operating efficiencies for Knight and provide management with streamlined real-time access to mission-critical asset information. We look forward to completing this enterprise rollout of VeriWise solutions across Knight’s entire trailer fleet.”

VeriWise asset tracking systems combine sensor, wireless and Web technologies and are designed to provide real-time visibility of trailers and their cargo. The system is designed to identify, analyze and respond to critical transportation issues to improve the efficiency and security of logistics operations.

“To maintain Knight’s high standards for lean operations and superior customer service, we depend on real-time visibility of our cargo-carrying assets,” says Steve Grover, Knight’s vice president of corporate facilities and communications. “After an extensive evaluation, we chose to expand our use of VeriWise wireless asset management solutions because they precisely meet the diverse requirements of our different asset types, and they deliver the most effective, reliable results. In addition, Asset Intelligence has proven to be an invaluable partner to Knight, working closely with us over many years to optimize our fleet performance.”

Grover says Asset Intelligence was the only provider able to deliver information seamlessly across every type of trailer in Knight’s fleet and, at the same time, integrate a user-friendly Web portal with both the company’s core dispatch application and its employees’ peripheral devices, such as smartphones and tablet PCs. “These unique capabilities provide enhanced fleet visibility, which can improve equipment utilization,” he says.
