Orbcomm, a global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, has been selected by Bay and Bay Transportation to provide telematics for its mixed fleet of dry van, refrigerated trailers and dry tank assets.

Bay and Bay will use Orbcomm’s GT 1100, an easy-to-install device with a low, one-inch height profile, to monitor its assets. The GT 1100 is sensor-compatible and self-powered with solar recharging technology for low power consumption and long service life.

Orbcomm will also provide Bay and Bay with a web application with data reporting and analytics capabilities to increase visibility and security of its dry assets.

For its refrigerated fleet, Bay and Bay will be using Orbcomm’s RT 6000+ cold chain telematics solution for two-way temperature, fuel management, maintenance, and logistical applications services. The application includes proprietary hardware and a robust web application to increase the efficiency, mitigate product spoilage and ensure compliance with new food safety regulations.

Orbcomm expects the deployment will continue throughout the remainder of 2016.

“The addition of Bay and Bay to our customer portfolio is a great win for Orbcomm, and we look forward to helping them maximize asset utilization and gain significant fuel savings across their mixed fleet operations,” said Marc Eisenberg, Orbcomm’s chief executive officer.

The applications integrate with Bay and Bay’s transportation management platform, TruckMate from TMW Systems, to capture asset data.

“By utilizing Orbcomm’s powerful telematics solutions, we can streamline our delivery operations and protect the integrity of the cargo we carry, while ensuring premier service for our nationwide customers,” said Aaron Thompson, executive vice president for Bay and Bay Transportation.
